Fijian woman jailed for stealing millions in NZ

A FIJIAN woman was handed a four-year six months jail sentence yesterday for stealing about $7.08million from the transport company she worked in at Auckland, New Zealand.

Sushila Devi Mosese, 51, according to the NZ Herald, pleaded guilty to eight charges of dishonestly using a document to obtain about $7.08m from Mainfreight back in 2006.

It is reported that Mosese was Mainfreight's credit controller, in charge of collecting outstanding invoices. Court documents showed she deposited cheques for payment into a bank account with a similar name to her employer.

She had taken control of an ANZ bank account assigned to a social club under the name of Daily Freight Ltd, with no association to Daily Freight (1994) Ltd which is a subsidiary of Mainfreight. Mosese also directed all of the mail for this account to her home address.

Nearly 500 cheques were deposited into the account she controlled, from which she withdrew cash — up to $1m in one year.

Mosese was fired last August after the fraud was discovered. It came to light after she was asked questions about outstanding credit owed by customers, with her answers arousing suspicion. She is reported to have had previous convictions in Fiji, involving theft from an employer.
