Conman ‘addicted’ to taking money from women he met on dating sites
Tuesday 17 September 2013
A conman with an “addiction” to swindling money from vulnerable women on dating websites has been jailed for four years.
David Brice, 48, targeted women across Britain and charmed them into handing over thousands of pounds in cash and property. Brice would then abandon his victims who believed they were investing in a “trusting relationship”.
Bristol Crown Court heard Brice was jailed in 2010 for three years after admitting “carbon copies” of his latest deceptions.
He “continued to offend like mad,” the court heard, after being released from prison and first conned a woman from Norfolk out of £250 and stole her Ford Fiesta.
The self-employed tyre fitter was arrested and charged with fraud and theft. Despite being on police bail, Brice went on to swindle cash and property worth more than £7,809 from five more victims.
Brice, of St George, Bristol, wept as he was jailed for four years after pleading guilty.
