Bullied Accountant Steals £170,000 ($222,724) From Bosses And Blows It On Cocaine And Prostitutes

Darren Carvill, 38, an accountant who said he had been bullied at work stole £260,000 ($340,637)  from his employers and spent £170,000 ($222,724) of it on cocaine and prostitutes in one weekend. He admitted stealing the money from car servicing company Mr Clutch.

Darren Carvill, started going to escorts and buying cocaine as a way to deal with his low self esteem, saying he had been bullied for the majority of his life, according to his Lawyer.

The lawyer told the court that Carvill had become addicted to a life of high-class escort parties and being surrounded by ‘glamorous’ people and drugs.

The accountant admitted to a total of 18 fraud charges and was sent down for two and a half years. It was reported that he had started sending fake payments to himself after allegedly being bullied at work.

Carvill revealed that when it became obvious he would be caught, he spent a weekend partying with prostitutes and taking cocaine, claiming he wanted to ‘go out with a bang’.

James Ross, his barrister, said:

“He has had a very unhappy life. For most of his life he has been bullied.

“He has suffered from very low self-esteem and social awkwardness. He says he was a good employee and worked long hours and did good work.

“He says his bosses had shown them nothing but kindness. But other than the owners, there was at least one person who subjected him to ridicule and caused a downward spiral.”

Mr Ross also said he had become more and more unhappy at work, using his night life as an escape.

One of the directors of the company, Alfred Abdulla, said that Carvill was a ‘respected and trusted employee’, but that his actions meant that he even had to borrow money from family members to save his business.

It was also revealed that Carvill’s actions almost pushed the company into bankruptcy, with some of his colleagues going without pay for up to five months.
