Return of scammer Liam McMahon

Written on Thu 18 Feb 2016

In 2014 a scammer named Liam McMahon was jailed for 28 months for persistently selling fraudulent tickets. We hoped that spending time at Her Majesty’s Pleasure would somehow act as a deterrent to him from offending again.

So we were stunned to be contacted by a Scarlet Mist user who told us that he had been defrauded by someone named Liam McMahon (naturally he was scamming using a made-up name, and he’s even hiding behind the name Rachel, perhaps to make himself appear more credible).

And we were even more stunned to find that the bank account that he’s using (Sortcode: 11-73-61 Account No: 06168067) is the same one that he was using before he was scammed. Does anyone at Halifax bank take notice of this?

You can see what he looks like if you check his Whatsapp picture (his number is 07495234551) or you can look at his mugshot at http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/10986766.One_Direction_and_Olly_Murs_fans_targeted_by_ticket_scammer/

As always, Scarlet Mist will be cooperating with the police and other authorities to rid our community of scammers. And while people like this are on the prowl then we urge you to take care.

Following communication between Scarlet Mist and Halifax, they are now carrying out their own investigations.

He’s not just a scammer, if you read that link he had indecent images of children on his computer as well which is far worse.

I was scammed by him a few years back for festival tickets, I still have the emails he sent me. It’s a very consolation that I wasn’t the only one he fooled. Absolute scumbag.
