Updated - IRA bomb memorial thief jailed for online scam

Warrington Guardian: Spartakas Grachauskas Spartakas Grachauskas

A THIEF who attempted to steal a plaque from the IRA bomb memorial is back in prison after taking part in an international internet scam that saw shoppers conned out of thousands of pounds.

Chester Crown Court heard on Thursday how the fraud saw more than £32,000 stolen.

Websites were used to sell discounted cameras at cheap prices, but set up so that card payments would deliberately fail.

Customers were then asked to make a bank transfer, and the money was stolen. No goods were ever provided.

Spartakas Grachauskas, aged 27, of Dudley Street, Orford, allowed his own bank account to be used to launder money from the illegal operation, the court heard. 

He was jailed for 18 weeks in May 2012 after attempting to steal a plaque that forms part of the River Of Life memorial on Bridge Street to bomb victims Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball.

Three other defendants also took part in the money laundering by allowing personal bank accounts to be used.

They were Lilija Gincman, of Howson Road, Orford;

Warrington Guardian:

 

 

Rita Jablonskaite, from Stoke;

and Aleksas Bagdonavicius from Crewe,

Warrington Guardian:

All three were found guilty after trial.

Judge Roger Dutton said in making their bank accounts available the Lithuanian nationals had allowed criminals to rip off residents ‘at arm’s length’.

He branded their evidence during the trial last year as ‘ridiculous’.

Grachauskas did not turn up to the trial in December, but on arrest pleaded guilty to money laundering at what Judge Dutton called the ‘eleventh and three quarter hour’.

He allowed £4,307 to pass through his account.

Lucy O’Gara, defending, said he failed to appear at trial as he did not have money for transport.

“He was worried about financially supporting his family so he allowed his bank account to be used,” said Ms O’Gara.

“He says he was not aware of the larger scale of the operation.”

The court heard criminals who hatched the online fraud, that operated from June 5 2012 to December 1 2012, are probably based in Lithuania and have not been caught.

Customers across Europe were conned with victims reported in Greece, Germany, France and Italy.

Gincman laundered £16,695.

Judge Dutton said there was evidence to suggest she was more deeply involved in the fraud, with police finding a diary of passwords, contacts and account details at her Orford home.

The court accepted the defendants had been targeted by more ‘criminally sophisticated’ fraudsters.

Gincman, Jablonskaite and Bagdonavicius were jailed for a year for money laundering.

Grachauskas was jailed for eleven months for money laundering, and one month for breaching bail conditions.

Judge Roger Dutton slammed the deception of the defendant's during sentencing.

He said: “It’s often said the internet has changed our lives immensely over the years.

“What it has also done is open up opportunities for unscrupulous criminals to exploit unsuspecting members of the public at arm’s length, who send money off to websites in the trusting expectation they will receive the which they have paid for.

“In order to operate a criminal scam of this kind it requires criminals who are prepared to allow existing bank accounts to be used for money from the unsuspecting public to be channelled into these accounts and then, within days, the cash withdrawn and funnelled back to the criminal enterprise.

“This is the role you played.

“Without your co-operation, this fraud could not have succeeded.

“You were a highly necessary ingredient.

Judge Dutton slammed the defendants convicted at trial of attempting to lie their way out of trouble.

“The air of innocence you portrayed to the jury was clearly a facade.

“Each of you knew precisely what was going on.

“You were telling a cock and bull story that had probably been fed to you by those running this.

“The sad fact in this is that none of you realised how ridiculous those accounts were.

“Each of you came to the UK, it seems from the evidence heard, none of you can speak a word of the language and are reliant on family.

“However, you knew what bank accounts to get, and how to play your part.”

as cultures go eastern Europeans have a height of scams from their underground gangs.

the most common is insurance fraud (which after the last 10 years of scams that the insurance have clamped down on) will now flair up again hopefully the insurance companies have good investigators.

Most eastern Europeans where bought up with carrot and stick through generations, so when they see a target rich environment like the uk for work a new life, and unfortunately crime thats where they will head.

in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Belguim, Holland, Switerland AND sweeden If your an immigrant/Migrant or on a work visa if you break the law you are instantly deported after any sentence has been carried out.

So why should we be the country that gives them more and more chances we have enough crime of our own.

I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I say....well done you! That sentence was really nicely written, your mum will be very proud. Let me state though that there are very few things "BETTER TO DO" than fighting bigotry and intolerance on here. It's what I live for ...and when I'm not online..I'm thinking about something that someone said online and how I'm gonna make them pay for their ignorant outlook on the world and lack of compassion for other human beings. You do caps lock..I do moral high ground. Probably neither of us are treated with the respect we deserve at work. We are bitter

True it does not say anywhere in the article that these people are immegrants. However when the first on attemtped to steal the plaque, it was then sated he was an immegrant. Deport him, why should we as taxpayers pay for his time in prison and then when he comes out, probably have to pay him benefits because he won't be able to get a job with his record

' shove their snouts in the trough' ...like pigs you mean? Pigs or vermin are common words used by racists and Nazi's when refering to ethinc groups.

any of the above and instantly if you say something negative your a racist
so how can we have a grown up conversation.


have you seen how fast the lib dems labour and conservatives have jumped on ukips policies

yet 6 months ago where terrified to be labeled a racist but now the elections are around the corner they think that a few new rules over benefits and housing is going to make mr joe public vote for them.

Its news media outlets and politicians that plays us off against each other.

Just because people moan about the above subject DOES not make them racist they should have an opinion on how their taxes are spent without being labeled.

Your problem Fedster is that your frame of reference is set in the 1950s. The world has probably changed more in the past 5 years than it did in the previous 50 and you old boys fear change. You'll get your referendum and no doubt things will go your way...it'll be your grandchildren that suffer as a result of your inability to move forward but I'm confident they'll put it right when you've gone.
