    Last weekend and the story's been lifted from the Mirror site now.
    Peculiar.
    Involved the type of old-fashioned fraud Alf & Don Cuozzo at ADC
    pulled with Lloyd's. Director invented dockets for jobs that were
    never booked and stuck them on the Hammersmith & Charing Cross NHS
    Trust invoice. Being the NHS the idiots didn't suss it until he'd
    nicked £250,000. This has now been repaid with interest after the
    fraud was uncovered. Lewis Day say it couldn't happen again coz
    they've changed their methods. Right. The director has left the
    company.

    My info says that the director left the company and went to work for
    City Sprint. With a reference, natch.
    The world, his wife and their kids in this industry knew what was
    going on at Lewis Day. Dom the Bubble was at it for a good 18 months
    before being officially sussed.
    In reality he was sussed early on. Inventing dockets isn't exactly a
    cunning plan. MD Hilton Lewis was told by a former MD at West One what
    Dom was up to before the end of 2006. Hilton already knew. Figures.
    Millionaire Jewish accountant, 6 figure sums being swindled from under
    his hooter. He's likely to cop on.
    As the fraud involved invented dockets going through Lewis Day's
    accounting system and ghost drivers being paid for them Lewis Day got
    their 50% cut of each dodgy docket. Hilton reasoned that he could
    always plead ignorance when the scam was discovered and blame Dom. So
    he did nothing.
    Dom and others were eventually asked to leave when they invented
    phantom employees and paid their money into their own accounts. Direct
    fraud against Lewis Day. No cut for Hilton. Dom was shown the door.
    Honest industry this, isn't it?
