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.

Sunborn officials alerted the courts when the electronics store sent them a receipt for the acquisition.

As well as paying the compensation, Jimenez will also face 70 hours of community service.
