A WGC mother is among hundreds of victims caught up in an �80million scam.

The 48-year-old, who has son with cerebral palsy, said she and her family have lost �50,000.

She told a national newspaper: "We had been saving his disability payments for about 13 years, it was going to be a deposit for a flat or an annexe to our house."

A pop star, TV actress and top sportsmen are also among the 600 investors involved in the dupe.
