A Dorset school with academy status has fallen victim to an online scam, reportedly losing more than £1m. St Aldhelm's Academy in Poole was contacted by people pretending to be bank workers and requesting details of the school's bank account. Staff subsequently passed them on and the criminals withdrew the money, part of a multimillion-pound government loan for rebuilding. The fraud happened last summer but has just come to light. The theft is believed to be linked to organised crime in eastern Europe. The matter was immediately referred to the police and Action Fraud by the academy trust and to the EFA. The matter continues to be investigated by the police.
