London, November 17 (ANI): A blonde gold-digger was sent behind bars for 12 months after conning men out of cash through lonely hearts ads.
Married Loraine Upritchard, of Croydon, South London, fooled men by advertising herself as a widow looking for "mature gents".
The 51-year-old used to scoop out money from victims after winning their trust and is believed to have amassed as much as 100,000 pounds, reports the Sun.
She was finally nabbed after "borrowing" 2,200 pounds from Leonard Hesling, 69, who hired a private eye to track her down.
Con Gary Baker said: "Justice has been done. This woman preyed on vulnerable males." (ANI)
