Man from Australia charged by British Royal Mail over 'nine-year-long postal fraud' - in court today


A MAN with an address in Australia has appeared in a British court charged in connection with a nine-year long postal fraud.

James Mooney, 42, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court today (June 25 2022) to face one charge of fraud brought by the Royal Mail Prosecutions Office.

It is alleged that between May 14 2008 and May 18 2017 he conspired with others to commit fraud by making a false representation, intending to cause loss to postal operators, or expose them to a risk of loss. Mooney's address was given as being in Wyadra Avenue (main image), in Freshwater, north Sydney.

He was given conditional bail to appear for a plea hearing at Southwark Crown Court next month.

Under the bail conditions he must live and sleep at a relative's address in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire.
