Are you asking for a refund or do you want to carry on?
OK. So what is the fraud?
What specific acts do you think he will report you for?
Sorry but what is the fraud?
Have you kept the money from the private rent?
What money have you not passed onto him?
What is the benefit you have gained or loss you have caused him?
I can help with the criminal situation which is what you asked about originally but I won't know anything about employment. We do have an employment specialist but he won't know anything about crime.
How have you come to cause £15k worth of loss to this person?
Ok. Is that true?
But have you made £15k in profit yourself?
Ok. So basically this is either theft or fraud from your employer to the value of £15k - £30k.
That is a very serious I'm afraid. I would be making a no comment interview in police interview. Let's just see if they can prove it.
If they can then this is a a serious breach of trust, a high amount and a prolonged period of offending.
Applying the theft guidelines as this will most likely turn into a theft, this is a high to medium culpability case and a category two offence.
That would mean the starting point is 1 year custody and the range is 26 weeks to two years. You might well get the court to suspend it.
I'm very sorry but that is the reality.

They can do that but I would expect them to invite you in for an interview.
It is far less labour intensive for them.
Yes, they won't remand you in custody over this.
Probably about 6 weeks to two months. It could be longer. It depends how long the police take to act.
They are not under time pressure so it could be ages. I would hope within two months.
No problem. All the best.
