An Auckland man who helped swindle two businesses out of tens of thousands of dollars with decoy invoices - as well as an elderly Facebook user who was duped into thinking she had won a $350,000 lottery - has been sentenced to home detention, but with a warning that he’ll be headed to prison if it happens a third time.

Robert Gordon Sands, 60, appeared for sentencing today in Auckland District Court after having pleaded guilty last year to three counts of money laundering. It is the second time he’s been accused of participating in scams, having received a discharge without conviction out of Manukau District Court for similar offending in 2019.

He faced sentences today of up to seven years’ imprisonment for each money laundering charge, but defence lawyer Jonathan Loh argued his client had also been a victim who was roped into helping a stranger online via a love scam.

The first con for today’s sentencing involved a $30,000 invoice that a drainage work subcontractor emailed to Goodwin-Austin Construction in July 2020. The email was intercepted online and the Auckland-based construction firm instead received a similar-looking email from the scammer with different payment instructions, court documents state.
NZHerald紙
おとりの請求書を使って 2 つの企業から数万ドルをだまし取ったオークランドの男性と、35 万ドルの宝くじが当たったと騙された高齢の Facebook ユーザーに自宅拘留の判決が下されたが、次のような警告が付けられている。 三度目なら刑務所行きだろう。

ロバート・ゴードン・サンズ氏(60歳)は、昨年マネーロンダリングの3件の罪で有罪を認めた後、今日オークランド地方裁判所で判決を言い渡されるために出廷した。 同氏が詐欺への関与で告発されるのは2度目で、2019年に同様の罪でマヌカウ地方裁判所から無罪放免を受けている。
