That’s what happens when you think with the wrong head

cougars(10)Two Invercargill men duped by a “very convincing” conwoman fear she will target more men when she gets out of jail.

The men, aged 51 and 57, say their lives were ruined after falling prey to Diane Louise Boyd, 47.

Boyd, formerly of Southland, was sentenced this week to four years and two months’ jail when she appeared in the High Court at Christchurch for 120 charges relating to blackmail, obtaining by deception, dishonestly using a document, theft, causing a loss by deception and stealing a vehicle.

Yesterday, two of her victims painted a picture of a loving, caring woman who, after gaining their trust, manipulated, threatened and blackmailed them.

Both men said they met Boyd on a dating website before meeting in person. The 51-year-old said she convinced him to provide her with furniture to replace items lost in a burglary, and offered to help pay his accounts, but later threatened to expose risque photographs of him and go to police with allegations of insurance fraud.

I hope the jury didn’t have to suffer the risque photos as part of the trial.

The men’s warning she’ll do it again seems to have some merit. ┬áDiane Louise Boyd was convicted to a sentence of home detention in 2011 for pretty much the same crime:

A conniving Southland conwoman who met her partner on an internet dating site and ripped him off to the tune of $48,000 has been sentenced to eight months’ home detention.

Judge Kevin Phillips yesterday condemned the actions of 45-year-old Tisbury sickness beneficiary Diane Louise Boyd, saying she was a thoroughly dishonest and conniving conwoman who had a history of targeting vulnerable men and using their finances to her advantage.

“This woman got this man through an [internet] dating site, as she has in the past, and got hold of his finances and ripped him off,” the judge said.

She attempted to minimise her offending by making disparaging and inflammatory statements about her victims, the judge added.

Boyd took control of her 56-year-old victim’s finances after meeting him on the NZDating internet site and getting into a relationship with him.

She accrued $48,000 debt for the man, who had to borrow $25,000 to pay back bills.

Boyd was using the money to feed her gambling addiction, the judge said. The offending had had a major effect on her victim and his family and friends, “because you cut him off from them and that was part of your plan”.

Boyd, who is a grandmother, had committed similar offending in the past, the judge said.

There really is no reason to suspect she’s isn’t going to screw with a few more men before landing her next prison sentence.

She clearly is a danger to lonely men.

It is at times like this I believe our laws should allow a more practical solution. ┬áThe only way to protect any future victims is to have a court ordered tattoo put on her forehead that says: “CONVICTED FRAUDSTER”

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! what prize bunnies these guys are; fancy having so little shame or self respect they would tell anyone about it.
    No one likes a crybaby.

    • That’s what women like her count on. Using their shame to keep them quiet.

      I’m surprised you bothered to read about it given its Sth of your precious fucking Bombay hills.

      • Were you conned too dumrse?

          Perception becomes reality. Bit late to ewe turn now.

    It’s a wonder she didn’t get name suppression . Not one picture available on the internet to alert future lonely men .

    • Good point. The judge should have ordered her photo to be published widely.

      • Rodger T

        Maybe the blokes don`t want her picture circulated ,it might only increase their embarrassment .

        • I suspect she’s smart enough to play the long game. Taking an extra month or two to get the trust settled in before you start with the small requests that seem entirely reasonable. I’m not so sure most of us wouldn’t fall for it. Especially if she put out occasionally and we were lonely old pricks.

    Damm she must be a seriously good root, on the upside at least the money stays local rather vanishes to Nigeria.

  • Gazzaw

    I would suggest that the tattoo should be positioned in a far more strategic place.
