Fraud sentences reduced

Sentencing for fraud offences was the issue for the Court of Appeal in R v Agrigoraie and Savoae (2015). The Appellants who had been convicted, inter alia,  of conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation in connection with phishing scams totalling £15,000 and further attempts totalling £10,000 were sentenced to six and eight years respectively. They successfully argued that the starting points were too high and their sentences were reduced accordingly to four and five years respectively.
