Employee ‘Bullied At Work’ Steals £170,000 From Bosses And Spends The Lot On Cocaine And Prostitutes.


An accountant who claimed he was bullied at work stole £260,000 from his employers and spent £170,000 of it in one weekend on cocaine and prostitutes.

According to the Daily Mail, Darren Carvill, 38, admitted stealing the money from car servicing company Mr Clutch.

According to his lawyer, he began attending escorts and purchasing cocaine to cope with his low self-esteem, claiming he had been bullied for the majority of his life.

Carvill had become addicted to a life of high-class escort parties, being surrounded by ‘glamorous’ people, and drugs, he told the court.

In court, it was revealed that he began sending fake payments to himself after allegedly being bullied at work; he admitted to 18 fraud charges and was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.

When it became clear that he would be caught, Carvill spent a weekend partying with prostitutes and taking cocaine, claiming he wanted to “go out with a bang.”

“He has had a very unhappy life,” said his barrister, James Ross. He has been bullied for the majority of his life.

“He has suffered from very low self-esteem and social awkwardness. He says he was a good employee and worked long hours and did good work.

“He says his bosses had shown them nothing but kindness. But other than the owners, there was at least one person who subjected him to ridicule and caused a downward spiral.”

Mr Ross also stated that he had grown increasingly dissatisfied with his job and had turned to his nightlife as an escape.

Carvill’s actions nearly bankrupted the company, with some of his coworkers going without pay for up to five months.

Alfred Abdulla, one of the company’s directors, stated that Carvill was a “respected and trusted employee,” but that his actions forced him to borrow money from family members to save his business.
