A COLD-HEARTED fraudster stole almost �40,000 from two elderly women and used the money to fund numerous holidays and shopping trips.

Tracey Sheehan was sentenced to four years in prison last Thursday for 'fraud by false representation' of an 89-year-old from Dagenham and an 85-year-old from Chadwell Heath.

Last September police discovered Sheehan had persuaded the 86-year-old, who suffers from dementia, to withdraw her life savings of �15,000 and transfer them into the 89-year-old's account.
