A cleaner who accidentally received £90,000 in her bank account but did not disclose to anyone is now under investigation.
Comfort Konadu, 52, erroneously received the sum when she went to return an item at a charity shop, a court heard.
A total of £90,047.19 was transferred to Konadu’s account in error.
However, the cleaner did not disclose to anyone about the wrong transaction, but instead, she transferred £57,000 of the cash out into other accounts, including to her children.
After finding out the error the bank was able to freeze and retrieve some of the money, but the Royal Mencap Society has lost more than £31,000.
Furthermore, a Proceeds of Crime investigation has been launched to establish whether the charity can recover any of its losses.
