Angie explained: “They sent me an offer of £100,000. I wasn’t happy as I knew it was worth £140,000 – it was a huge loss.
“I texted him to tell him, but he just told me to do it.”
The man who claimed to be Chris sent people to Angie’s address to collect increments of £5,000 and £10,000.
Angie, in total, withdrew £63,000 from her account in instalments to give to Chris via various intermediaries.
But once she had handed over the cash, communication with the man calling himself Chris suddenly stopped.
