Fraudsters posing as Euromillions winners to steal cash from vulnerable victims in sick scam

CHEATERS impersonate EuroMillions winners Gillian and Adrian Bayford to scam vulnerable victims out of money.

Targets are being promised a £6.5million share of the mega-rich couple’s fortune in the ailing scammer.

One victim, Glen Seeber, 67, allegedly received an email from Adrian claiming he had won a megadollar prize from the couple divorced after raising £148million.

The questionable message, sent from a Russian address, said: “My wife and I have won the biggest EuroMillions lottery prize of £148 million.

“We have just started our charity donation and will be giving a cash donation of £6,500,000.00 to 5 lucky individuals and 10 charities from all corners of the world.”

The suspicious Mr Seeber googled the couple, found out they had split up – and then took to Facebook to warn others not to be tricked into giving out their personal details.

He wrote: “This is just cruel.

“Clearly the divorced Bayfords are not acting together to give away £6.5million to strangers.”

The crooks also claimed that they got his address from “Google Management Team”.

Panama-based author Seeber added, “That Russian idiot sending the emails is definitely NOT Gillian or Adrian Bayford.”

Gillian from Dundee and her then partner Adrian won the life-changing prize money in 2012.

But the hurricane cost her marriage and Gillian moved back to Scotland from Suffolk where she set up a property company.

She married Brian Deans in 2018 and had daughter Emily in 2020.

We told last week how Adrian, 53, was forced to cancel a rock festival on land at his £12million Cambridgeshire mansion due to objections.
