Former Barclays Employee Is Probably Going To Jail

Before anyone takes to Twitter to give the UK a piece of her mind, though, breathe easy: the misconduct is related to funds used to pay for breast augmentations and other cosmetic enhancements and could even take some of the heat off of Bob Diamond et al, who’ve yet* to be accused of using customer money to finance their liposuction.

A bank clerk stole £46,000 to fund a boob job, liposuction and hair extensions to help her achieve her dream of becoming a model. Rachael Claire Martin admitted taking the money over an eight-week period from Barclays Bank in Liskeard, Cornwall, where she worked. The 24-year-old, from St Austell, Cornwall, is thought to have spent £4,000 on breast enlargement and £1,700 on dental work, which included teeth whitening treatment. The mother of one also travelled to Bristol on wild shopping sprees – buying make up and other items before enjoying nights out on the town back at home. While working at the bank, she regularly stole relatively small sums of £2,000 and £1,000, which she siphoned into her own account. On one occasion she managed to take £6,000.

She initially denied 25 separate counts of theft from the bank between September 1 and October 3 in 2010. But the prosecution charged her with just one count of stealing £46,000 over the same period at Truro Crown Court yesterday and she pleaded guilty…She will face a jail term when she returns to court in September. Police were called when the theft was realised – but she had apparently already spent most of the stolen cash on her appearance, in the hope of realising her modelling dream.

*Though who knows what kinds of twists this story will take. Point is it’s possible.

    Should've stole 100k

  2. Moshe Lebowitz, ESQ says:

    She's clearly innocent. Says she stole the money to pay for her appearance.

  3. Alt_EST says:

    Lights on, post-op (assuming the photo is), in the bank vault with a Barclays internal auditor who doesn't seem to notice.

    Is that the cop fucking stripper from Long Island?

  5. Risk/Reward says:

    we really need a before pic

  6. Guesticle says:

    Should have bought a chin

  7. Grinders says:

    £46,000 worth of plastic surgery, and that's the face you choose.

  8. The Truth says:

    At least no handbridge needed

  9. Longnwrong says:

    without the glasses she's actually…er..

    No snark from me on this one. The older I get, the more I realize that women who get extensive plastic surgery have deep problems that go way beneath the surface of the skin. Plastic surgery, bad tattoos, and former boyfriends who are dumber than a brick are all big red flashing warning signs for me when it comes to dating.

    Love the glasses though.

    • VonSloneker says:

      Your ex…the post op transexual, really messed you up, huh?

      Oh and I like the glasses too.

      • Pietro_F says:

        The glasses are a symbol for the irony of this situation. The British irony, with its immediate payoff, like a picture of a girl who dropped 50k pound sterling on plastic surgery but still barely cracks a 6.

    • RedFlagGuy says:

      Red flags like those just mean you're going to have more fun and it will spectacularly blow up rather than slowly dying.

      – single guy who ignores red flags and will probably end up divorced

      • Lowly Assistant says:

        "it will spectacularly blow up rather than slowly dying."

        I'm being 100% sincere when I say that I completely am with you on this.

    • N'08 says:

      My genes are far superior. For instance, last night I was wearing a pair of A.P.C.'s, which complimented my Bottega Veneta intrecciato slip-on sneakers. What I'm trying to say is that I'm from the right side of the tracks, where we steal real money.

      • The Conductor says:

        How bout you fashion yourself right between them tracks and hang out for a while?

    Article fails to mention her weekend with N'08 at the wedding.

    Needs bigger glasses and scarier fingers.

    should have spent less on the tits and more on the teeth

  21. Guest says:

    At least this bank theft was going for the betterment of society as a whole. Too many examples of bad dental health in the UK one case cleared….. Millions to go……

    Wow, Garth looks great after the sex change.

  23. NYPost says:

    Too hot for Barclays?

    Your honor, my client was bombarded and baffled by bonobos by Breaking Media until she took those great british pounds! Simples as that, blame the bonobos!

    Only 1,700 pounds for a British girl's dental work? I think that number is missing a zero.

    The real thief is the vet who did this to her.

    Judging by the glasses…she was trying to model for the Miami Heat?

  37. Guest says:

    Looks like she knows how to get a good return from investments. We'll hire her.

    Given the hipster glasses, Lazard would have been a better choice of employer

  40. Im_a_Dude says:

    in hopes of becoming a model, the shot showing off the scars form your boob job is probably not the most optimal

  41. Joe Dirt Family says:

    Sis, where you been? Glad you didn't change the family hair!

  42. inlovewithpmco says:

    Looks like she was going more for the hipster look

  46. DingALing says:

    At least she has something to show for it. Barclays on the other hand should have used some money manipulated from LIBOR to make their asshole tighter because they're about to get fucked
