Aberdeen student tried to defraud British Airways
Passenger lied about lost luggage
A DISGRUNTLED airline passenger admitted trying to defraud British Airways out of thousands of pounds by pretending staff had lost his luggage.
Law student Mohamed Almagsoudi was said to have tried to pocket more than £5,000 from the company because he felt under-compensated for a previous bag bungle.
The 44-year-old admitted making fraudulent claims at Aberdeen Airport on two occasions by telling airline staff he had lost valuable items while travelling with British Airways.
The University of Aberdeen student admitted presenting identical receipts to BA Aberdeen Airport staff on January 6 and August 16, 2010, in a bid to obtain £5,247.
Sheriff Graham Napier ordered Almagsoudi to pay an £800 fine.
