A MAN is accused of being involved in a bogus energy company fraud worth more than £192,000.

Oluseyi Adekoya, 47, allegedly set up bogus accounts at the companies using stolen bank information between November 2013 and October 2016.

Prosecutors claim Adekoya later transferred cash from the false accounts into his own personal bank accounts.

The charge states energy giants such as Eon, Npower, Scottish Power, Scottish and Southern Energy, Spark Energy and British Telecom were all victims of the fraud.

It is further stated that Adekoya closed down the accounts with the firms following the transfer of cash.

Adekoya is claimed to have made between “£192,082.85 or £201,843.85” from the alleged scam.

Prosecutors say the supposed fraud had taken place at an address in Rutherglen, and elsewhere.

Adekoya faces another charge of concealing, transferring and removing bank accounts in his name that had been deposited as a result of fraud.

A hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court was postponed on Friday due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The case was dealt with administratively and a new hearing is set for August this year.

Adekoya, of the city’s Maryhill, was not required to appear at court and remains on bail for the matter meantime.
