An HR worker lied about a qualification to land a job at a global research firm and then submitted fraudulent expenses claims, the Manchester Evening News has reported.

The scam, carried out by Wade Jordon, took place while he worked for biotechnology experts QIAGEN. He landed an HR role at its Manchester office by claiming he had an MA in HR management from Manchester Metropolitan University.

However, a police investigation launched after the company unearthed his expenses fraud, found he had no such qualification.

Detectives discovered that in the three years working for the company he had submitted fraudulent expenses claims for training courses that he did not attend, totalling almost £40k.

Jordan also submitted fraudulent expenses for travelling and accommodation costs, totalling almost £5k, along with £500 for hotel accommodation for a Christmas party in December 2011.

However, his scamming did not end there, as once his crime was revealed, Jordon produced a faked doctor’s note to Manchester Crown Court to delay his sentencing.

Jordan was sentenced on Wednesday [11 June] to three years’ imprisonment after admitting four counts of fraud and perverting the course of justice at Manchester Crown Court.
