All Thanks to Saclux Comptech Specialst for giving me a reason to smile again. I lost all my savings in the hands of a fake investment platform. In April 2020 I was scammed by Coincrypto Tech Bitcoin. I invested half a Million dollars and After 30 days I tried to withdraw on their website from the investment account but an error came up so I contacted the support team to ask what the problem was. They told me that I didn’t have the required amount to make a withdrawal yet and that I should add more Bitcoin to enable me to withdraw, So I put in more Bitcoin and tried withdrawal again, and the same thing came up error. I then started to tell them they were scammers but they kept saying they were legitimate companies. They even gave me 2 other customers that will verify their legitimate company. I emailed and asked them and they told me it’s all okay. I decided to keep making payments to them when they still didn’t refund I emailed back those 2 customers that they had working for before,

I have a feeling the coroner might have come to a different conclusion if they'd known about the history of compulsive lying to garner attention. We already know she's capable of Munchausen (faking her own illness) so Munchausen by proxy isn't much of a stretch.

Too repetitive. Person states something, reporter repeats it and the Sue says it again to clarify. Padded out to make more episodes to allow more adverts perhaps? It is a fascinating story but this could have been so much better.

it seems really likely that there was some sort of sexual or emotional abuse that triggered the compulsive lying. suddenly after she moves in with the stepdad and step brothers she develops a reputation for lying, specifically to farm sympathy. someone who had told Mum, "I've been assaulted" or "I'm not comfortable" and was accused of lying would probably develop compulsive lying-not excusing this horrible woman but she probably got abused and wasn't ever helped, leading her to become a monster.
