Because Whitehouse stole her identity she faced numerous threats of bailiffs and now as Christmas is coming she can't really afford to have what she and her daughter hoped they would have.
The way Whitehouse operated was rather simple. After finding the personal details of his victims the man used those to take out loans from different companies such as Payday UK or Wonga.
The scam artist had numerous victims from which he also borrowed money that he never paid back. He was after single moms. He usually spent months before trying to get their money. Once someone was suspicious he left them and went for the next victim. After numerous complaints to the Police the man was arrested. When facing trial judge William Davis concluded the ruling by saying that the man had: "defrauded vulnerable women one after the other, purely to support [his] gambling habit".
