And this week the award goes to…

Posted in The Job - General by 200

fraudster4Next in line for a ‘Scum of the Week’ award is one 69-year-old Zandra Mackay, a ‘carer’ who, in partnership with 79-year-old Beryl Benbow who systematically ripped off the frail elderly woman they cared for.

They appeared this week at Cambridge Crown Court accused of milking the accounts of ex World War II Wren Catherine Devas who died in 2006. She had savings totally over half a million pounds which was reduced by the thieving scum plus other members of their families to virtually nothing. The woman had massive spending sprees on the old lady’s account which included £5,000 haircuts at top stylists. They used cheques & bank cards to steal cash from her bank accounts after the victim suffered a series of stroke in 1995 which left her partially paralysed & dependant on carers.

They also forged Mrs Devas’ will naming Benbow as executor & leaving everything to Mackay’s son. They also made plans to sell her flat to Mackay’s daughter in law for a third of its market value. In three years they took  almost half a million quid. All this while pretending to care for her.

Can there truly be anyone so evil & deserving of the title ‘scum’?

    The term ‘Fugly’ was invented for this scum bucket. By the time she comes out the Proceeds of Crime chappies will have reduced her and her cronies assets to the sum of 10p……won’t they?

    Yes, me too many years ago now and in Bracknell, I remember Zandra going out in the evenings and leaving her young children locked in the house. The police came and spoke to the children, including Marcus, a tot, through the letter box. Zandra, who was a very attractive girl and came from a good family, kept herself to herself,kept the children isolated, didn’t mix with the other mums.I recognised her the minute I saw her, she has the same look in her eye’s and I am really saddened to hear that Marcus has led a life of crime because I believe the childrens father was in prison during their young lives.
