Familiar story: a British grandmother falls for a smooth-talking foreigner on holiday and ends up handing over her life savings.
But former teacher Judith Stillwell, 61, did not need to travel abroad to meet the Kenyan husband who eventually betrayed her trust.
The divorced parish councillor met Ovi Elias, who told her he lived in London, on a dating website and thought she had found her soulmate.
They decided to meet in person, began a relationship and got married three years later, after Mr Elias moved into Mrs Stillwell’s home in Ashington, West Sussex.
But she later discovered that her husband, who made frequent trips abroad for what he claimed was ‘urgent business’, had 47 other lovers across the world.
She gave him around £25,000 from her savings to fund his expenses, and now believes she was the victim of an elaborate scam. Mr Elias, who told Mrs Stillwell he was 62, had claimed to be a 47-year-old called Steve when chatting to other women as far away as Australia.
Mrs Stillwell said: ‘While I believed him when he said he was flying to Dubai to do property deals, I have now discovered he was actually flying all over the world meeting other women who funded his lifestyle, just like me.
I thought we had a genuine relationship and I’d met my soulmate. But the reality is Ovi – or Steve as he was also known – seems to be making a good living out of women like me. He meets them on a website, says he is in love and then after coming out with various sob stories, gets them to pay for his bed, board, and travel.’
Mrs Stillwell, who worked in a primary school and has two grown-up children and one grandchild, met Mr Elias on a UK dating website.
She said: ‘He was completely different from any man I’d ever met and I was intrigued.’
He told her he had come to the UK 20 years ago as a student and now owned a flat in
