A Marshall Motor Holdings Maserati brand manager has been jailed for 14 months after diverting almost £200,000 of luxury car sales payments into his personal bank account.
Peterborough Crown Court heard on Friday (January 10) how Jamie Dyos, of Beccelm Drive, Crowland, Peterborough, took a total of £196,710.18 from the AM100 car retail group after handing his own details to customers at the point of sale.
The 46-year-old tried to cover his tracks by paying £133,923.92 back into Marshall’s accounts, but continued to trick customers into paying for their new car using his bank details, paying a portion back to the company while keeping some for himself.
Ultimately Dyos pocketed a sum of almost £63,000 over the course of a year from October 2017.
Last week’s court hearing at Peterborough Crown Court heard that that Dyos admitted what he had done to his employer at the end of October 2018 and was immediately suspended.
He later pleaded guilty to a charge of fraud by false representation.
DC Louis Scott, who investigated the case, said: “Dyos was put in a position of responsibility and repaid his employer by stealing more than £60,000.
“He took advantage of his employer’s trust in order to line his own pockets.”
