Facebook: Katie Price Exploited By Con-Artist

Glamour model, author, reality TV star and business woman “Katie Reid (aka Price), has been taken advantage of by a con artist who has tried to cheat her loyal fans out of £25,000 on Facebook.

When STV reported on this, Katie had found out that a fake page advertising an event was being shown on the online social networking site. The event drew Katie’s fans in, by telling them that Katie would be present at the “Formby Hall Golf Club” near Liverpool next January and for her adoring fans, it would be a great opportunity to meet their star. Poor fans were fooled into parting with £10 for a ticket. Indications show that at least 2,500 fans have been affected by this. The trickster told fans that the event would raise sufficient funs for the “Vision” charity, a charity that helps her blind disabled son “Harvey”.

Katie is said to be disgusted with the person who has done this, not only conning her fans out of money but using her son’s charity to draw people in. At this stage, police are investigating. Fans will now see on her website, a notice, warning fans not to be enticed into parting with their money.
