Charity page for Westminster victim set up in name of fraudster convicted in Coventry

An online page claiming to raise money for Westminster terror victim Aysha Frade was set up in the same name as a fraudster who was convicted in Coventry, it’s been revealed.

A JustGiving page which has raised over £24,000 was set up in the name of Elisia Evetts, who was convicted of benefit fraud in 2013.

Bosses at JustGiving have now taken over the running of the page.

“We’ve been carefully monitoring all of the pages that have been created to help those affected by Wednesday’s attack,” JustGiving said. 

“We are ensuring that all of your kind donations are being used as intended. Because concerns were raised about this page, we are now managing it ourselves and reaching out to the family.

Users on the page were leaving heartfelt messages for Aysha’s family.

“So very sorry for the girls losing their mother,” one wrote.
