Man admits money laundering charges after doorstep fraud

A building worker has admitted three charges of money laundering after £16,000 from a doorstep fraud went into his bank account.

John Nolan, 31, of Bennett Street, London, admitted the offences during a brief appearance before a judge at Carlisle Crown Court.

All the offences were committed in September 2012 after the 62-year-old victim – a householder in the Carlisle area – agreed to have work done on his roof by cold calling contractors.

The value of the poor quality work was later assessed by an expert to be £590, yet the victim was charged £16,400.

The defendant, remanded in custody, will be sentenced next month.
