A MAN who posed as a Sunborn employee to fraudulently acquire electrical goods has been order to pay £1,700 in compensation.
Albert Jimenez, 29, was paid £50 by an unknown man to pose as a Sunborn employee and ascertain £1,700 worth of electrical goods from Digital Corner on Main Street.
Wearing a Sunborn T-shirt, Jimenez managed to collect a forged order for a computer, a keyboard, two iPhones and three ink cartridges.
