A student has told how he became the toyboy of a Cornish cougar, before she was jailed for a £400,000 fraud.

Married Helen Hart from Illogan was sentenced to four years behind bars for swindling the money from the company she worked for.

Twenty year old Adam Cope from Truro admits being "dazzled" by the forty-four year old.

They met at a gym in the city and she contacted him through Facebook. After meeting up at a pub she sent him a bogus email claiming to show she had more than £84m in the bank.

Adam said: "She was gorgeous in her profile and looked amazing for 44. I didn't have a girlfriend. Who at my age wouldn't want to hook up with a rich, gorgeous older woman?"

Hart went on to lavish him with thousands of pounds of clothes, an iPad and even a trip on a private jet to watch the rugby in Cardiff.

She even promised him a Lamborghini, explaining that she was a gangland heiress and would pay for him and a friend to share a £2.5m mansion.

But Hart's web of lies was torn apart after she was arrested for fraud.

By then Adam had already begun to try to distance himself from her, smelling a rat. Her promises about the car and house had not materialised and a friend had seen her out with her husband.

But police arrested the Plymouth University student too, before realising that he was not connected to her crimes and was simply another of her victims.

Adam has returned all the gifts and has been working at a copper mine in Australia. He said: "I want to forget that I ever met Helen."
