Conman Terry Freeman appeared honest to victim

An investor who fell prey to fraudster Terry Freeman has described how she initially thought he was honest and trustworthy.

Barbara Shapero said she now hated Freeman, who has admitted defrauding more than 350 victims of up to £14m by running a so-called Ponzi scheme.

She added she wanted to warn others to be careful before they invested their money.
