Fake vicar George Gordon stole £90,000 in European grants after gaining clerical title from U.S. website

To his 'parishioners' George Gordon appeared a genuine man of the cloth.

Calling himself 'The Reverend', he wore a dog collar and boasted of Cambridge University degrees.

The 52-year-old claimed he suffered from manic depression and cancer, and volunteered to help charities for victims of mental health problems.

In reality, he was a serial conman and convicted fraudster, who bought his clerical title online and was only dedicated to helping himself.
