An Ipswich woman has denied two fraud charges and will next appear at the crown court.

Lucy Todd, 54, of Dorchester Road, Ipswich, appeared at Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on Friday to face a charge of fraud of abuse of position and a further count of fraud by false representation.

The hearing was previously adjourned from July 2.

The fraud by abuse of position charge alleges that Todd purchased goods worth £6,030.18 for herself between January 1, 2017 and November 30, 2017, while acting as power of attorney in relation to a woman’s financial matters.

The second charge alleges Todd made a gain of £30,954 by transferring money from the woman’s account to her own between January 1, 2016 and July 31, 2017.
