A ruthless woman from Coventry has been jailed from tricking pensioners into handing over their bankcards in a scam. Kelly Marie Gleeson, who put her desire above the care of her child, obtained tens of thousands of pounds from a sophisticated courier card con, which stretched across the country.
Gleeson, has been jailed for 5 years after the judge in Warwick Crown Court heard that most of the victims were pensioners as old as 95. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud, six charges of fraud, three of receiving stolen bankcards and one of possessing an article for use in fraud.
Richard Gibbs, defending, said: “It is imperative at the outset that she wants it to be known clearly that not only is she disgusted by her offending and its prolific nature, but she wants to apologise to all her victims.”
