Searchable threads in one long post:

Alexandra Billington

As seen in the leaked bank statements, RCL paid Alexandra Billington approximately £1000 a month using backers money to spy on backers and the ex-directors on social media.

Screen grabs were taken by Alexandra Billington and forwarded to both Suzanne Martin and David Levy. Alexandra used various fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter to infiltrate closed backer groups, spy and also cause descent amongst backers trying to dissuade them about asking for refunds or speak out against the RCL directors.

In this example, Alexandra Billington used a fake facebook account called Charlotte Jackson (now deleted) when sending screenshots back to Suzanne Martin.

More than £10,000 was transferred to Alexandra Billington in the leaked bank statements up until the bank account was empty in mid 2017, but she continued to spy for RCL into 2018.
