She told how English cops weren’t interested but officers and prosecutors north of the border eventually took action.

Leuser, 63, from Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, was caged for three years.

Helena, who played the wife of Walford baddie James Wilmott-Brown, said: “I’m extremely relieved that justice has finally been served.

“She has shown no remorse for the trust that she has abused, the pain she has caused, or the crimes that she commits.

“I’ll never recover financially from the damage that she has caused.

“But I hope that others might be protected from this callous fraudster, at least for the time that she is in prison.”

This was against someone who you considered to be a friend…You exaggerated and embellished and continue to blame her for some of your offending

Leuser claimed she knew Hillary Clinton and would be getting behind the scenes access to her 2016 presidential campaign.

Helena believed the web of lies and regularly handed overpayments to cover her friend’s expenses from 2011 to 2017.

But the plot came to an end when she was jailed in London for trying to con filmmakers out of £120,000 with the same tales.

At Peterhead Sheriff Court, beak Craig Findlater told Leuser: “This was against someone who you considered to be a friend.


“And, for her part, she considered you to be a friend to her.

“You exaggerated and embellished and continue to blame her for some of your offending.

“You do, in the report, acknowledge that you have done wrong at some point.

“Only a custodial sentence is appropriate because of the scale of the fraud, the monetary value, the length of time involved and the impact upon the victim.”
