A fraudulent HSBC bank employee who stole more than £150,000 from an elderly man with dementia has been jailed.

Issachar Stainrod-Holness, from Balham, changed the victim’s telephone banking details to his own, siphoning £156,700 into his own bank account. 

Stainrod-Holness, who worked at the HSBC branch in Bayswater, transferred the money on several different dates.

The crime was only spotted after the victim had died, when his widow noticed the fraud and alerted the bank.

DC Stephen Westlake, the investigating officer from the Met’s fraud and cyber-crime squad, said: “Stainrod-Holness shamefully plundered the victim’s account.

“It is tragic that the victim died before Stainrod-Holness could be brought to justice.”

The bank worker, of Old Hospital Close, pleaded guilty to one count of fraud by abuse of position.

He was sentenced to 18 months in prison at Southwark Crown Court on Tuesday.
