A Whitehaven woman in England sent £11,500 from her husband’s bank account to a man in Nigeria she had met through Facebook.

Jane Pope, of Hensingham, admitted fraud by false representation and theft after using her husband Michael’s bank details to send £4,000 and a £7,500 loan to the man – who she continues to speak to.

At West Cumbria Magistrates today (Friday), the 55-year-old was handed a 180 day prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to undergo 45 days of rehabilitation.

Prosecutor Pamela Fee said Mrs Pope had paid the money to a man she believed lived in Nigeria, adding Mr Pope had “no knowledge” of the transactions as she managed the finances for both herself and her husband.

She said Mrs Pope had filled out a loan application online and sent a cheque from the cheque book of her husband.
