A 28-year-old woman has been fined after a string of fraud offences.

Emma Oldham appeared in Mandurah Magistrate's Court on Tuesday and pleaded guilty to 17 counts of fraud, as well as stealing and breach of bail conditions. 

The court heard Ms Oldham stole a handbag, containing a bank card and $500 cash, from a trolley at Stockland Shopping Centre in Bull Creek on October 5, 2017.

Between October 5 and October 7 Ms Oldham used the stolen bank card to make purchases in Willeton, South Lake, Bibra Lake and Fremantle to the value of over $1200.
