Coleen Nolan: 'The online hoaxer who conned my sister Linda into believing they were a victim of the Manchester attack'
COLEEN NOLAN ON SISTER LINDA NOLAN BEING A VICTIM OF AN ONLINE EMOTIONAL FRAUDSTER
Coleen has spoken out after her sister Linda, who is living with cancer, has been preyed on by a sick troll who posed as a victim of the Manchester terror attack.
Linda spent almost a month exchanging hundreds of messages with the Facebook fraudster, as well as spending hours on the phone talking to 25-year-old 'Emily Hughes' and her 'sister Mia' before she discovered the shocking truth.
'She befriended her, she spoke to her every day,' Coleen explained. 'She spent hours on the phone, shared her whole life with her and sent her gifts.'
The night before Linda was due to visit her in hospital, the hoaxer faked her own death and broke the news to Linda through a 'friend'.
Watch the video to see Coleen's reaction to the sick prank - and discuss whether this kind of emotional fraud should be a crime.
