    Where does she live. That white car would look better in a burnt colour.

    I think the makers should have spoken to a solicitor to establish the Illlegality of the fraud. I’d be pretty sure it’s against the law.

    Next week...victims who parted with €3k to a magic bean seller outside their local LIDL.

    Very complicated , whilst you can check any folio, it's not normally done by using a name, you could spend years searching, I noticed this Trollop also registered the company in the UK

    This is so sad and upsetting and my heart goes out to all who have been swindled from that b1tch. These people were already in a vulnerable situation and she took advantage of them. How does someone sleep at night swindling vulnerable people knowing some day she will make them homeless on top of their troubles. She was ruthless. Prison would be too much of a good and kind place for her.

    She is a ruthless bitch to do this to people. She doesn't give a ****

    Well well, this absolute tramp is busy

    A similar scam that ran back around 2013, heavily influenced by 'Freeman on the Land' conspiracy horsesh!t, where they took hundreds of euros from thousands of people promising to protect their properties from repossession. Charlie Allen was the main person behind it, but she was in the leadership group it seems.

    She also has convictions for tax irregularities and a fraud conviction, although I couldn't find any of that stuff by googling. I wonder why.

    we are too light on our laws on this ****. The american justice system has its flaws but crimes likes this isnt one of them, they would have up on wire fraud before she could blink and have her locked away for 80 years.

    I think that Prior Park one is related to the Rodolphus Allen Family Trust scam, via Charlie Allen.

    The guy who took his wife to a meeting with Catriona recorded her secretly. Fair enough. But who did the extra filming? Outside the premises and a brief clip of someone recording across from them. I doubt this couple would have taken the trouble to do this when a single secret recording would do.

    the lure of writing down a €300K mortgage to €100k and to start being able to breath again and keep your head above water.


    This wasn't a Robin Hood stealing from the rich, this was someone preying on the most vulnerable. An absoute C$nt

    Damien gives "Muppets down the pub" a bad name.



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,978 ✭✭✭✭Dempo1


    It's just extraordinary, I'm wondering if any of the victims put 2 and 2 together, knew or found out she was DJ's sister, a simple Google search would have raised alarm bells

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,988 ✭✭✭Deeec


    Thats just it - they were in a desperate situation.

    If only it was that simple though we would all default on our mortgages and and get a new cheaper mortgage. If it sounds too good to be true it's probably a scam. They also should have sought legal advice before parting with their deposit.



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,978 ✭✭✭✭Dempo1


    I hear you and agree but honestly it's shocking

    This was a heart breaking program to watch. How can she drive around in her swanky white car completely without remorse of what she has done.

    When I google “catriona Carey address” this list of covid payments to employers comes up. I’m browsing on my phone so can’t tell if one of her companies is on the list. I fecking hope not!

    All the people conned are the most timid people I've ever seen.

    Any financial or legal documents should be ready in a month at the very most. After a year I'd be threatening her with the gardai, dept. of consumer affairs,CAB.



  • Registered Users Posts: 488 ✭✭Rob Thomas


    And no one related to that charlie allen scam was ever convicted I don't think and the victims lost their money.


    The problem in this country is that the chances of getting convicted in these financial scams is so low its not a big risk for the scammers at all.


    They just seem to walk away scot free

    I thought you didn't watch RTE???

    You said you don't pay your license fee and you don't watch RTE.


    Whoops.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭Xander10


    but that's a general Irish trait, i.e. to be trusting



  • Posts: 8,856 ✭✭✭ [Deleted User]


    boards policy prevents me from describing my true feelings as I watched the programme but I think you’ll have got the gist from other posters here on this thread over the last few pages and I’m not even one of her victims



  • Registered Users Posts: 212 ✭✭Achilles Knee


    I'm from the area, in the family DJ and Martin are sound. She was always a bitch.



  • Registered Users Posts: 685 ✭✭✭TallGlass2


    RTE should have brought over that lad from BBC Rogue Traders, she's wouldn't have gotten out the car park as easy.



  • Registered Users Posts: 212 ✭✭Achilles Knee


    Most people I know, if promised something in 2 weeks, and didn't have the contract in a year would lose the rag.

    We're fiery enough, especially when it comes to big money. For me these people are overly timid.

    Full Disclosure folks. I had my own experience with Start Mortgages, my own mortgage was purchased from PTSB in 2019, honestly I had small arrears, a fraction of what some of these people borrowed, in fact my entire mortgage less than than the highest amount two of these people borrowed. My difficulty was health related, reduced earnings etc.

    I engaged Mabs, went through the process, cleared arrears, it took time and effort and it was painful. There is absolutely no way I'd have even dreamt of engaging a company like this, the notion any private company can just buy your mortgage is just la la land stuff.

    Admitidly my situation wasn't as grim as some of these folks but this is absolutely no way to deal with an arrears or repossessions situation. Vulture funds are ****, let there be no doubt about that but if a distressed borrower is seen to engage and more importantly continues to pay what they can it would never come to what these people ended up doing.

    I'm not judging them, I'm actually very very upset for them and of course sympathise as I've the experience behind me.

    It's disgusting and if anything comes out of this, I hope it will be, never, ever to fall into this kind of trap.
