A MAN who embezzled £100 from another man in Erskine will have to wait a month to learn his fate.

Stewart Wilson, 46, appeared in the dock at Paisley Sheriff Court on Friday after previously pleading guilty to conning Raymond Strathearn out of the cash on June 6, 2015.

The court heard Wilson got Mr Strathearn to complete a bank transfer of £100 to him after he tried to arrange for his company logos to be displayed on some cycling tops.

After Mr Strathearn transferred the money, he invited Wilson to his home address in Erskine to discuss further details and to view the product.

However, Wilson declined to attend, prompting Mr Strathearn to contact the police.

The court was told that Wilson, of Annpin Road, Ayr, was neither an employee nor an agent and had no intention of arranging for the displaying of the logos on the cycling gear.

After police made several attempts to track down Wilson, he was eventually charged with fraud at Paisley Police Office on August 30 last year.

The court heard that Wilson had, in the meantime, been seeing a psychiatrist for problems with anxiety and depression.

Sheriff Colin Pettigrew said he was “seriously considering” a custodial sentence but added that he would defer a final decision until November 2 as he wanted to see medical records.

Wilson was told his bail would continue in the meantime.
