Katrina Jones, Sheffield con artist was sentenced to 6 years in prison after admitting to a string of offences. Throughout the years she successfully duped a charity and several businessmen illegally obtaining £500,000 which she then spent entirely on online bingo depositing at a rate of £20,000 per week. One of her favorite websites was Jackpot Joy!

The 53-year-old had been a wanted woman since 2004 when she was featured on TV show Crimewatch after tricking three rich businessmen into buying real-estate properties. She took £88,000 from the K9 Crusaders’ bank account - which should have been used to redevelop the charity’s premises, after successfully conning the founder, who was going through a life crisis at the time. She employed Jones as the charity’s treasurer which she took advantage of cold heartedly. Jones gambled the cash and splashed out on a lavish lifestyle until she was finally arrested in December 2014 and charged with more than 29 offences and fraud.

Sentencing her, Judge David Wynn Morgan said: “There is no evidence to suggest any money you received from the frauds was spent on anything or anyone other than yourself.

“You are a cold-blooded, evil and malevolent confidence trickster.”

Jones will not have to return a penny of the stolen money because there is none left, she spent it all on online bingo!
