Anti-fraud chief stole £64,000 from Oxfam
THE former head of counter-fraud at Oxfam is facing jail for taking more than £64,000 from the charity.
Edward McKenzie-Green admitted carrying out the fraud when he became addicted to prescription painkillers.
The Old Bailey heard fraud expert McKenzie-Green, 34, created invoices for firms he had set up and then paid the cash into bank accounts, including his father’s. He became paranoid through his use of drugs and stockpiled £64,612 for when he thought he was going to be fired by Oxfam.
Shoppers and one of the charity’s first volunteers were left shocked at his conviction.
After McKenzie-Green pleaded guilty to fraud yesterday, a money laundering charge was dropped against his father, Edward Green, 62.
