The defendant and co-defendant Karl Quinlan were accused of conspiring with the defendant’s ex-partner to defraud George Davies of nearly £300,000 in a five-year ‘boiler room fraud’. The defendant’s ex-partner pleaded guilty.

The case has been covered in the local media.

Mr Davies was contacted by phone and email by a cold-caller who claimed they could help him invest in shares. He was persuaded to transfer £282,000 into an international bank account in Mr Quinlan’s name.

The defendant claimed she did know about her ex-partner’s dealings with Mr Davies and said that he was “overpowering” and “very good at pressuring people.”

Mr Quinlan was also acquitted.

Alex Taylor-Camara was instructed by Mary Monson Solicitors.
