Credit card fraudsters have stolen around £14,000 from professional 'personality' Katie Price, according to the Daily Mirror.
The former glamour model, also known as Jordan, saw three credit cards rejected at the checkout on a shopping trip in Brighton at the weekend.
On calling her bank branch manager, Price discovered that her cards had been cancelled 24 hours previously by an impersonator, a "source close to the star" told the Mirror.
When she asked about her balance it emerged that an unauthorised withdrawal of £9000 and two of £2500 had been made.
The crooks also ordered items online, giving Price's real address for billing but a delivery address in the north.
HSBC called in Lincolnshire police who have already "located footage from CCTV footage showing someone dressing up as Kate with a blonde wig and big boobs, clearly impersonating her," says the source.
"It's really horrible. All I know is that police have footage of these people pretending to be me - I don't even know if it is a man or a woman. Obviously my ego hopes it was, at least, a female impostor," Price told the tabloid.
