A 26-year-old woman must pay £260 and carry out 60 hours’ unpaid work after dishonestly obtaining refunds from TK Maxx stores in Romford and Ilford.

Between March and April this year, Yolanda Amiator, of Burdett Road, Dagenham, made false representations at the stores on five separate occasions.

She obtained refunds for items that had been switched to represent higher values, intending to make a cash gain for herself.

Two of the offences, on April 19 and May 8, took place at the Romford branch of the department store.

Amiator must carry out the unpaid work within a year, as well as paying £200 costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

She was sentenced at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on July 26.
