A bride-to-be who made headlines last week after allegedly tricking her fiancé out of his stag do money, was already under investigation for credit card fraud.

It’s been revealed that Rachel Doran, 29, had been arrested last month and was on bail after a suspected ‘cloning’ offence.

Working at a hotel in Cumbia at the time, she was questioned after a guest claimed fraudulent purchases were made on his card.

The dodgy bride’s antics came to light when friends of jilted groom Chris Mahone spoke out about his devastation after his ‘future wife’ stole $18,000 of his bucks money.

The Mirror reported Rachel handed him phony plane tickets at Leeds Airport before pulling a disappearing act.

The money had been saved for him and his 30 friends to go on a bucks trip to Ibiza, but instead when Chris, 27, and his mates tried to check in they were turned away.

“He thought Rachel was the love of his life,” a friend told The Mirror.
