A bank branch manager has appeared in court charged with multiple counts of fraud over a period of more than 10 years.
Samantha Ann McDowall, of Ansley Close in South Croydon, is accused abusing her position at HSBC and falsifying customers’ accounts for her own financial gain on dozens of occasions between 2004 and 2012.
Among the 26 charges laid against the 30-year-old include accusations that she faked customers’ signatures on bank withdrawal slips for her own gain.
She is also said to have intentionally caused a number of people financial loss through false accounting.
Ms McDowall appeared at Redhill Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
She will next appear at Guildford Crown Court on August 15.
