A jobless woman, claiming to be an airhotess with Dubai-headquartered Emirates airline, dated three men simultaneously and conned them out of thousands of pounds, according to The Daily Mail.
Stacey Simpson, 25, lived with her long-term partner while also sharing a ‘love-nest’ with another boyfriend, a court heard.
And as police investigators closed in on her she went on a foreign holiday with a third man, the newspaper said.
She could deceive all three men as they were living within miles of each other in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. She would tell them she was on a flight when she was actually meeting one of them.
Simpson was jailed for 10 weeks at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court on Monday after pleading guilty to 12 fraud charges at a hearing earlier this month, the newspaper said.
One of her boyfriends - an unnamed fireman - ended up having two of his properties worth around £250,000 repossessed because she spent the money meant to pay the mortgages. She then rented out one of the flats to a Qatari student even though it had already been repossessed, it added.
When the student returned from a holiday, he found he was locked out. He agreed to pay a further £1,000 pounds but was still unable to get into the property. He phoned her but she claimed to be in Singapore on duty, the newspaper said.
The Qatari then contacted Kirklees Council and a joint investigation involving West Yorkshire Police and the Department for Work and Pensions was launched.
The court heard investigators discovered Simpson had submitted a housing benefit claim for another property she lived at with a different partner - dubbed Boyfriend Number Two, the newspaper said.
The next day she told council workers she was going away and flew to Majorca with Boyfriend Number Three, it added.
That same day the police turned up to the home in Huddersfield she had been sharing with Boyfriend Number One and her lies unravelled.
