Published

Gemma Badley the Facebook Fraudster who conned vulnerable people out of hundreds of pounds has escaped jail, she was only caught when she attempted to use one of Psychic Sally’s fan’s details to take out a £500 payday loan.

Badley took on the identity of Physic Sally to fuel a gambling and alcohol addiction. Cleveland Police found boxes of alcohol at the home of jobless Badley’s Hartlepool. She had bought the alcohol over the internet with her innocent victim’s money.

She targeted vulnerable people who wanted contact with those they had recently lost, looking for answered they turned to who they believed was Psychic Sally some paid her £10,00 a time others went further and shared their banking details.

Cleveland Police discovered that she had taken £750 from a victim’s bank account and added it straight into an 888.com gambling account.

HSBC bank launched an investigation into the disappearance of the money with her lawyer Neil Taylor saying: “It wouldn’t have taken any great detective work to work out where that money had been put in”

The solicitor added Badley had defied a speech impediment to bag a good job, but an “addictive personality” lead her down a spiral of despair.

“She was a young girl who found herself a good job who, for whatever reason, finds herself short of money and very sadly turned to gambling on the internet,” added Mr Taylor.

“(That) gambling addiction has caused her to lose her job, lose her home and caused her to be in rent arrears.”

While Badley was struggling on just £500-month after losing her job she hatched her plan to become Psychic Sally scamming people out of hundreds of pounds.

She would go on to claim that she was the real star and would offer customers readings from as little as £10 once the money was in her bank she would simply block the customer on facebook so they could not contact her again.

Sally Morgan has said that they believed at first it was a bit of a joke but things got out of hand and frightening when she was doing it in her name and Cleveland Police did not want to know and refused to investigate the incident saying “At first we thought it was a bit of a joke but it got quite frightening that she was able to do this in my name and no one wanted to know.”

“It was a bit scary what she was doing. We put pictures on Facebook and within literally three minutes she had taken them and set up a new account.”

Sally Morgan’s business manager contacted the fake Sally Morgan and paid £20 in order to expose the fraud

Eventually, Sally Morgan’s business manager coughed up £20 to Badley for a “reading” in order to expose the fraud.

Once Badley was exposed she wrote a letter in which she confessed everything and requested her 19 other offences be taken into consideration during sentencing.

Neil Taylor told the court that Badley understands that she has done wrong and that she needs to be punished saying “She understands what she has done is wrong and understands you have to punish her,”

Ian Goodman sentenced Badley to 24 weeks in jail suspended for 18 months, She was ordered to pay £790 in compensation and will be referred to the probation service.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
