Catch Me If You Can conwoman on the run after alleged credit card sting

A notorious conwoman is on the run after allegedly swindling dozens of hotel customers out of money in a bank and credit card sting.

Pauline Flett, 33, was one of Scotland’s most wanted fraudsters when she was finally caught in 2016 after years of evading justice. Flett – nicknamed Batgirl because of a tattoo on her arm – was arrested over a string of frauds after handing herself in at a police station in Blackpool. She gave herself up so cheat bounty hunters could not claim a £2000 Crimestoppers reward.

The con artist, from Buckie, Banffshire, had taunted the authorities – even shamelessly posting a selfie with an unsuspecting police officer on social media.
