Adele Rennie (pictured) tricked ten different people, sometimes by using a voice-changing app on her phone
A former nurse who posed as a man online to con women into sending her naked pictures is back in prison after repeating the crime only months after her release.
Adele Rennie, 28, targeted three more victims and used voice-altering software to sound like a man in the so-called ‘catfish’ scam.
Rennie, of Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, admitted posing as men named Dan, Daniel, Max and Jack during an 18-day period in which she duped victims into sending her personal information and pictures by social media apps such as Tinder and Instagram.
She also tricked one of the women, a single mother of two, into sending her a video after she posed as a male lawyer.
Rennie admitted the crimes, which caused her victims ‘fear and alarm’, at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Monday and sentence was deferred.
All the offences were carried out in January, three months after she was freed from jail after serving ten months of a 22-month sentence for an identical scam.
The 27-year-old single mother targeted by Rennie said she felt in ‘danger’ after receiving an alarming number of calls from one of the crook’s fake personas, ‘Daniel Crolla’.
The pair exchanged flirtatious texts and calls before the victim became suspicious. She told The Sun: ‘I had no idea it was Adele Rennie who was behind it. This criminal lawyer called Dan was contacting me all the time but when I checked there was nobody under that name.
‘I knew that something wasn’t right and I thought I was in danger. I called my friend and said, ‘You need to come and get me. I don’t feel safe in my house’.’
