A Queenstown woman done for a $400,000 bank rip-off has
admitted the offending - and using the money for a house,
overseas trips and paying off debts.
Former ANZ business banking relationship manager Jenna Lee
Robinson, who worked out of ANZ's Camp Street branch in
downtown Queenstown, pleaded guilty during an appearance in
Queenstown District Court this morning.
Robinson admitted accessing the bank's computer system to
dishonestly obtain benefit, having set up 16 fictitious
accounts with loan and overdraft facilities between August
16, 2010 and July 4, 2013.
Robinson also admitted five charges of having control of
property, totalling, $402,386.01, in circumstances she knew
required her to account to ANZ Bank - and she intentionally
failed to do so, committing theft.
Sergeant Ian Collin, reading the statement of facts, says she
used the money to pay a $115,000 deposit for a Arthurs Point
home, furnishing, trips to Canada, Japan and around NZ plus
paying off credit cards and hire purchase items.
Judge Christina Cook remanded her on bail for sentencing on
