49-year-old Beau Plantard pretended he was a veteran paratrooper who had once been asked to assist with the rescue of Nigerian Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in a bid to sleep with women.
Plantard who also goes by the name John Pugh, claimed he was a Special Air Service (Sas) hero and worked as Princess Diana’s bodyguard.
Plantard would play friend’s videos which apparently showed him jumping out of planes and even had a tattoo of Parachute Regiment-style wings emblazoned across his shoulder blade, with the word ‘airborne’ inked above.
According to MailOnline, one of his ex-girlfriends has also claimed he is a serial love rat, who began dating her while he was still in a relationship with his partner of 17 years.
Second World War historian Amy Jelfs, 36, who dated Plantard for around five months, said she broke up with the ex-serviceman after rumbling his charade, branding him as ‘disrespectful’ and ‘manipulative’.
She told MailOnline:
“He just told a pack of lies from day one. He has his whole village thinking he is some sort of war hero. I wasn’t even impressed or particularly bothered that he was in the SAS, but he would just go on about it constantly: every day he had a new story to tell. He’d apparently been all over the world on secret missions. He’s an awful man and, more than anything, it is so disrespectful to serving troops. That is why he needs to be exposed.”
“He was charming and manipulative,’ Ms Jelfs said.”When he told me he was away in Nigeria, he was actually on holiday with his partner. He once declared to the whole gym that he was going for surgery to have a piece of shrapnel removed from his bottom, which wasn’t the case at all.”
“I had my suspicions and then he would just come out with more and more weird stuff. I started digging around myself and realized he wasn’t telling the truth. As for his tattoo, it’s hideous and wonky. That also made me suspicious.”
“I just wanted to warn Sam that he was dangerous. She has got a little girl. He lied to me from the beginning. He never mentioned he was in a relationship. He said he had been in the Paras and always used to make out as though he had a traumatic time.”
