Emma eventually became suspicious and after some investigating she found out it wasn’t the real Lewis she had been dating.
But after confronting her catfish and reporting her to police, Emma received a number threats fro other made up online personalities and was even told to kill herself.
In a statement to the cops, Emma said: “I was so emotional that sometimes I would be throwing up and losing weight. I wake up screaming having had nightmares about all these communications.
“I have thought about committing suicide and have even got to the point where I wanted to stab myself in the stomach, hang myself, overdose.”
A traumatised Emma killed herself in 2018, two years after the ordeal ended when Abdelmalek’s home was raided and she was finally arrested.
Abdelmalek will be sentenced in June.
