“The advert showed the furniture in a garden surrounded by candles, with champagne resting on the tabletop. I’ve been swindled.”

When Fleur, a former financial advisor, wanted to file a complaint, the furniture company had removed their online advertisements.

Fleur, the mum to daughters Kaci, 18, and Jena, 16, said: “I’m kicking myself because there were no dimensions on the advert.”

“It was a con but I made the mistake of being taken in by the photos.”

“I’m not going to squeeze my backside onto those chairs, am I?”

“My daughters called me a doughnut and thought it was hilarious.”

“My lovely colleagues were in hysterics. No one can believe I fell for it.”

“But there is a serious side and I’m speaking out to try to stop other people being taken in.”
