A teacher from a top Auckland school has been charged with using colleagues' personal details in a bid to make money.
Auckland Grammar School economics, accounting and business studies teacher Rafe Callum Fannin, 36, appeared in Auckland District Court yesterday facing four counts of dishonestly using a document to obtain a pecuniary advantage.
And police said in court it was likely further charges would be laid.
The offence carries a maximum penalty of seven years in jail, and outside court Fannin conceded: "It's not looking too flash, man."

"I'm going to get fired. I'm f***ed anyway, you know what I mean?"
Fannin said the prestigious all-boys school knew about the allegations and had stood him down.
Auckland Grammar School headmaster Tim O'Connor did not return calls on the matter yesterday.
Court documents allege that between November last year and June, Fannin used the driver's licences of two other teachers in his department to get cash.
He would not elaborate on the specifics of the allegations and said it was all "new territory".
"I'm in a real bad place at the moment," he said.
In court yesterday, Fannin was remanded on bail without plea to appear in court again later this month. He must remain at his mother's house in Whangarei, surrender his passport to authorities and not apply for any other travel documents.
