A money laundering charge has been authorised against a Swanscombe woman linked to a £37,080 fraud offence.

 

In October 2018 an employee working for a company based in London paid the sum to what they believed was their solicitors after receiving an email containing a false invoice.

 

Uche Okafor, 39, of Swann Street, Swanscombe, was arrested on Thursday 25 June 2020 following an investigation by detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

 

She has now been charged with one count of money laundering and released on bail to attend Medway Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 3 November.
