Katie Price and family jet off to ‘secret’ location after fans conned out of thousands by rogue trader she promoted

Katie Price and her family appear to be flying out of the country after a rogue trader she promoted conned her fans out of thousands.

The My Crazy Life star was joined by her fiance Carl Woods, her son Harvey and her daughter Princess Andre for the trip, as they shared updates from the airport.

‘Where we going?’ Carl asked Princess in one clip, as the 14-year-old replied: ‘Secret!’

He asked Harvey the same question, with the 19-year-old echoing his sister’s answer.

‘Big secret!’ Carl teased.

The four of them also travelled through the airport on a cart, as Carl explained: ‘It’s all going off in the airport’.

‘I’m trying to be in disguise,’ Katie said, as Carl responded: ‘You ain’t going to be in disguise with Harvey next to you. Princess wants the ground to swallow her up.’

The trip comes after the mum-of-five issued a statement to fans after some of them reportedly lost thousands after investing money with a rogue trader.

She was paid to advertise the services of Forex trader Josh Chandler, but one fan, Kate Dalrymple, 40, a nurse from Newcastle upon Tyne, said she lost £825.

She was guaranteed £1,250 if she transferred £100, but was then asked to pay a ‘release fee’ of £725 with the promise of receiving £4,000.

Kate told The Sun: ‘I feel so ­stupid. But I was always a fan of Katie’s. I thought she was a good mother and related to her.

‘Now I feel so let down and embarrassed. How could she put her name to this?’

Kate was one of at least five in the same boat, with the scam being reported to Action Fraud.

The foreign exchange (also known as FX or forex) market is a global marketplace for exchanging national currencies.

Katie, who also recently spoke out about a police investigation into ‘sick jokes’ about her son Harvey, has issued a statement to fans, writing on her Instagram Stories: ‘I’m absolutely devastated to receive the news about rogue trader Josh Chandler, if that even is his real name, he has conned not only me but my family, friends, loyal fans and supporters.

‘I want to thank Action Fraud for reaching out, for working with me in investigating this awful situation.’

The 43-year-old went on to reference Harvey’s Law, a proposed bill she’s been fighting for that would require social media companies to ask users for ID, largely to combat online trolling and cyber-bullying.

‘This is precisely why Harveys Law is yet again so relevant, if we had the much needed support channels in place and required by law to provide IDs to be set up on social media accounts then people like this Josh Chandler would not be able to target [vulnerable] people [sic],’ she added.

‘My heart goes out to all those that this conman’s deceit has affected. I pledge to you all I will seek justice’.
