She furiously slapped the marketing company and warned her fans that if they “invested” in the summer soiree, they should “reconsider” it.
“Announcement regarding the summer soiree at Kraft, Dalston,” began Katie, 43. “I’m not part of this event.
“I was never assigned to attend this event. I will not open this event. I will not attend this event.
“And if my commitment has encouraged you to sponsor, invest, or attend this event, reconsider.”
Katie drove her anger home and concluded, “After all, I have NEVER spoken to or dealt with Sainty Marketing or Amy Gillin! This is fake advertising!”
The Sun Online contacted Katie’s agent who confirmed that “false advertising” had been used to sell “sponsorship” using the star’s name.
“We were made aware that a company was selling ‘sponsorships’ through false advertising under the false pretext that Katie was headlining an event,” they said.
“Katie immediately shared this information on her social media to expose, warn, and protect anyone targeted by this woman or the company that is no longer trading.
“After the recent and deeply disturbing event that unmasked a scammer using the alias Josh Chandler, Katie is now working closely with an anti-fraud standards team to stop these goodwill fraudsters.” by others and by Katie’s and other well-known established names and faces. “
News of the marketing hoax comes shortly after a scammer stole thousands of pounds from their fans and left them “devastated”.
The humiliated reality star vowed to seek justice for her after The Sun revealed she was paid to promote a rogue dealer on Instagram.
In a statement, the mother of five said: “I was absolutely devastated when I heard the news of this renegade trader Josh Chandler. If that’s his real name at all, he cheated not only on me, but also on my family, friends, fans and supporters. “
“I would like to thank Action Fraud for contacting me and working with me to investigate this dire situation.
“This is exactly why Harvey’s Law is so relevant again. If we had the much-needed support channels and the legally required IDs to set up social media accounts, people like this so-called Josh Chandler wouldn’t be able to hide and attack vulnerable people.
“My heart goes out to all who are affected by the deception of this deceiver. I promise you all that I will seek justice.”
The Sun recounted how Katie was paid to tell her 2.6 million followers about the currency “maniac” Josh Chandler.
Kate Dalrymple, 40, a nurse from Newcastle upon Tyne, says Katie should repay £ 825 – almost a month’s wage – that she lost.
“Josh” guaranteed her £ 1,250 if she transferred £ 100. She sent the money and was then asked to pay a “release fee” of £ 725 – and said she would get over £ 4,000.
Kate says she lost almost her entire monthly salary of 1,140 pounds. She reported the action fraud and at least five others were tricked.
Katie is said to have received around £ 3,000 per post.
The former glamor model, once worth £ 40million, was declared bankrupt in 2019. In April it emerged that she still owed £ 3.2 million to creditors.
