A "callous"conman who fleeced more than £170,000 out of a string of women he met through a website for "sugar daddies" has been jailed for seven years.
Callous Jonathan Price, 41, posed as a super-wealthy businessman, telling his victims he was an ex-SAS man, a friend of the late, exiled Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky and he had a home in Sandbanks, one of the most exclusive addresses in the country.
He turned their lives upside down and even married one victim, with whom he has had a child.
With "extraordinary callousness" the Walter Mitty figure pretended he was dying and invented a friend who would email progress reports to one victim to throw her off the scent, the prosecution said.
After convincing them he had millions in offshore accounts, he managed to borrow many thousands from his victims and their ageing parents by claiming he had cash flow problems and that he would repay them once the issues were resolved.
But penniless career criminal Price would vanish after claiming to be terminally ill with a brain tumour and move in with another woman.
He met women online by using a "sugar daddies" site which aimed to match beautiful women with wealthy men, Teesside Crown Court heard.
Price pleaded guilty to 14 frauds and one count of theft, and it was said he would plan his next con while in jail for his last.
