My bigamist boyfriend tricked me into marrying him in Africa

When Julie Stead arrived to visit her boyfriend’s family in Gambia, she was pleased to be given an elegant cream and white outfit.

She wore it on her birthday a few days later, believing she was going to a party. But she soon discovered that the big event was her own marriage – and there was nothing romantic about it.

Her boyfriend threatened to leave her stranded in Africa if she refused to go through with it. Only after reluctantly agreeing did 28-year-old Miss Stead discover that her ‘husband’ was already married to a Gambian woman and had two children. Yesterday, as he was jailed, she told how she had been targeted by a serial conman as a means to live legitimately in the UK.

Miss Stead, a carer from Bridlington, East Yorkshire, met Ahmed Jobe, 31, at a nightclub in the seaside town in 2006.

But thanks to a loophole – and here's where you can help – I will be able to access these funds, half of which I will be more than willing to share with you…"

    Will they NEVER learn?
