A transsexual fan of UK’s Jordan aka Katie Price, who stalked the glamour model is facing jail after admitting to stealing thousands of pounds from the celebrity using identity theft.
Kerry Marshall, 18, who is currently undergoing a sex change to become a woman, managed to con a series of bank tellers into believing she was the television star.
The teenager obtained details of Price’s bank account seven months earlier after tricking her way into the model’s Sussex home by posing as a member of security staff.
Then Marshall, wearing a blonde wig, went on to withdraw £1,000 from the star’s bank account in September and six days later took out a further £1,500 at an HSBC branch.
Marshall also bought a Mazda MX5 sports car using mother-of-three Price’s bank details. She also bought a Pandora Bracelet and purchased hundreds of pounds worth of goods on the internet using a Pay Pal account.
Marshall of Eastgate, Sleaford, pleaded guilty to five charges of fraud between 27 September and October 3. Marshall, formerly known as Tyler Meadows, was charged under her new female name after being arrested in her home town during the early hours of the morning of October 7.
The investigation was launched after CCTV appeared to show a blonde woman wearing sunglasses withdrawing money at an HSBC branch in Lincolnshire.
Price became aware of the alleged fraud when three of her credit cards were declined while she was shopping in Brighton.
Judge Sean Morris adjourned sentence until the New Year to allow for the preparation of a psychological report.
He remanded Marshall into custody and told her ‘These are very serious offences. All options are open.’
