A FORMER Ryedale businessman has admitted he carried out a £250,000 fraud involving faked emails and a property investment.
But Guy Brudenell, 42, denies two other frauds involving property investments totalling £1 million.
He will now stand trial at Teesside Crown Court at a date to be decided.
Brudenell, formerly of Nawton, near Helmsley, and now of Lammas Court, Scarcroft, Leeds, denies falsely representing that £600,000 would be invested in property in November 2008 and that £400,000 would be invested in property between December 9, 2008, and January 10, 2009.
He also denied four charges of making fake emails between February and December 2009.
During a plea and case management hearing at York Crown Court, he admitted committing fraud between March 23 and March 25, 2009, by falsely representing that £240,000 would be invested in property, and to making emails in other people’s names on March 23, April 2, April 15 and July 8 in the same year.
He also admitted making an article for use in fraud involving a NatWest bank account in 2009.
Brudenell was released on unconditional bail.
