A 24-year-old OnlyFans mum has pleaded guilty after scamming men she met on Facebook out of £35,000, Liverpool Crown Court heard. Leigh Dennis had been charged with two counts of fraud by false representation, and possession of extreme pornographic images, as the court heard that she conned one man out of more than £30,000 of his inheritance money.

Detailing Dennis’s crimes, Rebecca Smith, prosecuting, said the mum used social media sites to commit “romance fraud”. Between January and June 2021, she scammed Colt Candeias out of £33,672 and Aaron Carroll out of £1,940 between January and July 2021.

Ms Smith also told the court how Dennis started talking with Mr Candeias – who has Autism Spectrum Disorder and difficulties with communication – on Facebook dating. She revealed that Dennis later asked him to subscribe to her OnlyFans account, Liverpool Echo reports.

Ms Smith said Dennis’ fraudulent actions began with her asking Mr Candeias to send food orders to her address in Wallasey. She told the court how Dennis would give a variety of reasons for needing the money – such as for council tax, to buy goods for a friend from Argos, help with rent or that she was having suicidal thoughts.

Soon, Dennis began receiving electrical items – including nine iPhones and a new washing machine – and eventually she convinced Mr Candeias into sending sums of money to other people. The then-22-year-old also duped Mr Candeias into giving over £5,000 to a man who Dennis informed him was her landlord.

The money Mr Candeias gave to Dennis was that of his inheritance, which he had received following the death of his mother. Despite efforts in trying to arrange to meet up with Dennis in real life, the pair never did.
