She Made Millions Off A Food Poisoning Scam, And She Has Just Been…


A luxurious lifestyle flaunted on social media comes crashing down as the woman behind it faces potential prison time for orchestrating an elaborate holiday food poisoning scam.

Laura Holmes Cameron takes immense pride in showing off her lavish lifestyle on social media. However, the glamorous mother of three now faces the possibility of spending up to eight years in a harsh Spanish prison if convicted of her alleged involvement in a preposterous holiday food poisoning scam.

What makes her case particularly noteworthy is that she is believed to have been the ringleader of eight British individuals who participated in this scheme to swindle thousands of dollars from a Spanish hotel.

Cameron, a British expatriate, proudly showcases her acquisitions on social media. Presenting herself as an “entrepreneur” in the travel industry, she claims to consistently “turn passions into paychecks,” captivating those who yearn for a similarly luxurious life.

Recently, Cameron was charged with fraud and gang membership in connection with a long-running police investigation in Majorca, Spain, dating back to 2016. Sources close to her arrest assert that she could face up to six years in a notorious Spanish prison for the aggravated fraud charge, plus an additional two years for gang membership.

A source informed the DailyMail, “She’s probably looking at five to eight years if convicted of both crimes. That’s likely to be the sort of sentence prosecutors will be seeking.”

In the judge’s investigation, Laura Cameron was charged under her maiden name, rather than her married name, Joyce. The six-page document detailed how she allegedly led a “profit-motivated organized gang” of Britons who deceived a Spanish hotel out of thousands of dollars.

Palma-based Maria Perez Ruiz accused Cameron of enlisting accomplices to travel to the island to submit fraudulent food poisoning claims. The targeted hotel groups in the scam reportedly suffered losses of approximately 9.5 million British pounds or over ten million dollars. Detectives working on the investigation named the crackdown Operation Claims.

The payouts from the purported fraud, which were made from Spain to the United Kingdom in 2016 and 2017, were said to have “notably exceeded” more than two hundred thousand dollars.

A source close to the case revealed, “A fraud conviction would result in a fine as well as a prison sentence. Prosecutors will obviously also be seeking compensation for the amount they say has been defrauded. The final figure may not end up being included in indictments, but it will be made public at trial.”

The scam was uncovered when the targeted hotel hired detectives to investigate the food poisoning claims. These investigators discovered that the individuals alleging to be bedridden with diarrhea were, in fact, partying near the hotel pool with drinks in hand. To make matters worse, they had carelessly posted these photos on social media themselves and failed to remove them.

The fraudulent food poisoning claims were filed in November 2016 after the British schemers took a trip to the Canary Islands.
