Salford student jailed for defrauding eight women

Emmanuel Jack Jack defrauded eight victims out of £186,000

A former university student has been jailed after he duped women he met online into handing over money to him.

Emmanuel Jack, 26, of Bronte Court, Salford, admitted 11 counts of laundering money totalling £186,000 and possessing articles for use in fraud.

He was jailed for three years at Manchester Crown Court on Monday.

The offences were committed while he was studying for a business degree at Salford University.

A Proceeds of Crime Act hearing is scheduled to take place on 16 May.

Two of the women who were conned are British, while the other six victims live abroad and one has since died.

Det Con Stuart Donohue, of Greater Manchester Police', said: "While we strongly suspect - but cannot prove - that Jack was the person who was communicating with these women, what we can prove is that money totalling close to £277,000 has been transferred through his bank accounts.

"Women from across the globe were targeted and exploited. Women, who in most cases were vulnerable and lonely. "
