Two held over Barclays 'cyber scam'
Two men have appeared in court charged with a £1.3 million bank cyber fraud.
Darius Bolder, 34, and Tony Colston-Hayter, 47, are alleged to have set up a sophisticated system to siphon off cash from accounts after gaining access to a Barclays branch computer in Swiss Cottage, north London, in April using a planted keyboard video mouse.
They appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court accused of conspiracy to steal from Barclays.
Romanian national Bolder, of Ebury Bridge Road in London, and Colston-Harper, who gave his address as Ilminster in Somerset, did not enter pleas to the charges.
They were remanded in custody until their next appearance, at Southwark Crown Court next month.
Bolder is also accused of conspiring to commit fraud by false representation, alongside two other defendants.
Lewis Murphy, 29, also of Ebury Bridge Road, and Michael Harper, 26, of Kiln Place in north west London, are charged with credit card fraud linked to up-market retailer Selfridges.
They also entered no plea and were remanded in custody.
