Man is jailed for stealing millions of Nectar points
Oh James Stevenson, you are a silly bugger. Daft James whacked millions of Nectar points to his collection of loyalty cards between 2002 and 2009, thinking that, at no point, would some kind of paper trail lead directly to him and, ultimately, send him to prison.
The Sainsbury's IT worker stole more than 17 million Nectar points from the firm, valued at £81,000.
The silly sod created false accounts to give himself loads of points, which he's apparently spent. And now, he'll be rattling a tin cup against prison bars as he was sentenced to 20 months in prison for fraud.
Judge Peter Thornton QC told him, reports the Telegraph: "You had access to the Nectar card system and loyalty card scheme. You abused your position over a period of years by putting points on to false cards. You then set about spending some of the money. You abused the trust that was placed in you by your employers."
"It is clear your initial motive was greed. This was a carefully planned, well-worked fraud on Sainsbury's."
The clearly bored Stevenson created at least 18 accounts under false names, some of them "silly names" and names of famous DJs, the court heard, presumably trying not to laugh as they were read out.
