A mother-of-three has been spared jail for her part in a rent scam where a man was defrauded into paying more than €1,500 to secure a room in a house in Dublin.

The victim was unable to contact anyone over the fraudulent letting after the money was transferred into the bank account of Jules Gossy (25).

Gossy, with an address at Esker Glenn, Athlone, Co Westmeath, pleaded guilty to two counts of handling stolen property arising from the incident.

Judge Michael Walsh ordered her to carry out 220 hours of community service instead of an eight-month prison sentence.

He said but for the fact that she had paid full compensation she would have been jailed.

Dublin District Court heard on May 25, 2019, gardaí received a complaint of deception in the form of accommodation fraud.

A total of €1,550 was obtained from a bank account holder, who was looking to rent a room in a house at Longwood Avenue, Dublin 8.

The account holder transferred the money in two transactions of €1,050 on April 25 and €500 on April 28.

Money was withdrawn the following day on each occasion.

The account holder transferred the money in the belief that it would secure a room he was looking to rent.

The money was transferred to Gossy’s account and since then, the account holder was unable to contact the person supposedly letting the room.

Gossy was later arrested and charged.

She had entered a plea on an earlier date and the case had been adjourned for payment of compensation.

The court heard the money had been paid back in full. Gossy attended the probation service for assessment and was found suitable for community service.

The judge said he was ordering community service because Gossy had made full redress. If not, she would have been going to prison, he said.
