Nigerian girl stole from her employers on her 2nd day at work to fund her luxury wedding and honeymoon


Gabrielle Yinka Saunders, 32, used company credit cards to pay for her £10,000 wedding, as well as a £5,000 honeymoon in the Seychelles. She was arrested when she returned from the honeymoon. Saunders, since getting married at Belair House in
Dulwich last September, stole £35,000 from her previous employer PriceWaterhouseCoopers ( PWC ), where she worked as a tax accountant.

After serving a jail sentence, she started a £40,000-a-year job as a personal assistant at Insight Investments in June last year. But she proceeded to embezzle a total of £17,000 using her colleagues’ credit cards. Yinka went to the UK and graduated from Southampton University with a law degree in 2004, before starting work at PWC. While working at the multinational firm, she forged taxi receipts to destinations across the country at up to £250 a time, then signed them off by faking a colleague’s signature.


In 2007 she was jailed for 6 months for fraud, and in 2011 she was again convicted of fraud. The day after she started working at Insight Investments in June, she charged £5,272 to a colleague’s credit card in order to pay for her luxury honeymoon with husband David Osborne.

In September she used another colleague’s card to pay £10,254 to Belair House, £268.20 to the jeweller Andrew Charles, £597 to PESH flowers, £208.44 to fashion store ASOS and £390 to EE T-mobile. She has been sentenced to 15 months’ imprisonment suspended for 2 years, with 200 hours of unpaid work…. she plans to return to Nigeria after her jail term to pick up an appointment as d Minister for Power & Steal…..
