A Bromley fraudster who claimed to online buyers she was selling riding equipment because she had a chronic disease has been spared jail after duping 46 victims into paying for goods they never received.
Poppy Valentine Eastwood, 24, of Pike Close, pleaded guilty at Bromley Magistrates' Court on March 21 to six counts of fraud by false representation and one count of acquiring criminal property. She was sentenced at Croydon Crown Court on Tuesday, June 7 to six months in prison, suspended for 18 months.Well, of course! She's probably the real victim, right?
A Facebook group called 'Scammed by Poppy Eastwood' has more than 4,000 members.No doubt someone will complain about a 'digital lynch mob', but if the justice system can't protect people from scammers, who will?
