A BRITISH conman who cheated a fellow Brit out of thousands of euros is behind bars after being arrested in Madrid.
John Hamilton, 54, had been on the run since being convicted two years ago for his part in the fraud, in which he acted as an accomplice to psychic conman George Lavery.
The pair tricked Simon Trussell into handing over more than 12,000 euros after he had approached them for help in winning back his ex-girlfriend.
May I be the first to say, you would have thought he could have seen it coming??
