Fraudster faces jail after pretending to be Psychic Sally Morgan

Published

on

A fraudster pretended to be TV Psychic Sally Morgan and targeted vulnerable elderly people charging them £10-a-time for facebook readings from loved ones.

She lived the life of Sally within the eyes of Facebook copying every profile picture and facebook update.

Jobless and Skint Gemma Badley a former Dyke House School student aged 28 from Hartlepool was struggling to pay her rent.

So she decided to set up a fake Sally Morgan facebook page offering readings for £10 and once they’d paid up she would block them.

It was only when the star’s business manager rumbled her that she pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation.

Sally spend thousands of pounds to track Gemma down to Hartlepool after Cleveland Police failed to investigate.

Once Badley was tracked down Cleveland Police visited her home and arrested her.

The crimes took place between March and August last year in Hartlepool, and a judge has warned her she could be jailed.

Sally Morgan has said this girl made her life hell and fears that she actually wants to be here.

adding this girl claimed to be me, she stole my identity as soon as i uploaded a new facebook photo she would instantly change her fake profile image to match.

Believing that the line had been crossed when she started taking pictures of her family and grandchildren, this was when it had gone too far for Sally.

Badley then took things a step further and tracked down Sally real facebook page and began contacting her family members.

Sally confirmed she even uploaded a video to Facebook pleading with Gemma to stop what she was doing.

The judge warned that Badley now faces the possibility of prison. However Sally makes it clear that she does not want this girl to go to prison she just wants it to stop.
