Suzanne Louise Martin - In Sickness and in Wealth

Suzanne Louise Martin, convicted drug traffickerSuzanne Louise Martin – (not to be confused with the famous USA media producer ‘Suzanne Martin’, even though ‘Suzanne Louise Martin’ claims to be a film maker, and journalist (but no evidence of her creations exists)) as is widely known, is in fact a convicted drug trafficker, who served prison time for her crimes, and is a serial ‘con artist’.

She tries to blackmail and extort money from her victims, but when she (often) loses in court, it comes out that while she has been ‘working’, she has in fact also been claiming social security benefits for most of her life off the UK Government.

She often even admits this fact in official bailiff and court documents, saying she is ’suicidal’ if the authorities get too close to finding out her real status, or if debts are to be paid by her.

Our investigators have found the following evidence –

Currently she lives in her boyfriend’s (Nicholas John Trulocke – who is also possibly using a false name to avoid detection by third parties) house in Ramsgate, in the UK.

She claims social security benefits claiming to live in a ‘flat’ in the house, but in reality the house has not been sub divided into flats, but she in fact shares it with her partner, and they live as man and wife, and are engaged to be married.

Martin walks her dog on the Ramsgate seafront in the mornings and evenings, often in half-light to avoid people seeing her, and normally wears a baseball cap pulled down over her face as some sort of lame disguise. The dog is a large aggressive breed she uses to ward off potential people or victims confronting her. What the public does not generally know is she claims social security benefits while working, and makes out she lives on her own to the DSS.

Suzanne Louise Martin also claims some sort of ‘carers allowance’ for her mother; Sandra Martin, as well, while still working for Retro Computers Ltd as a director and PR consultant, while at the same time still claiming benefits herself.

Martin ‘claims’ her illness is – Depression and Anxiety, when in fact she has none, but actually gives these conditions to her poor victims.

In June 2011 she stated to a high court official she had “not worked for years and was on benefits”, which does not tie up with her company accounts for that period in time, as in one year alone, she turned over in excess of £300,000 with her then ‘PR’ company.

It is well known she has an Indian bank account based in London for ‘cash’ deposits, potentially her DSS income.

It is known that while claiming housing benefits she in fact is also living with her partner.

It was discovered (with documentary evidence) in late 2017, that she often sends threating emails TO HERSELF to give to the police, to make them believe people are trying to harm her, when in fact no one has sent her anything. She uses this to avoid arrest herself while false labelling others.

Penalties for benefit fraud include:

  • loss of benefits for up to three years
  • repayment of overpaid benefit
  • prosecution
  • a criminal record
  • an administrative penalty of between £350 and £5,000
  • a possible prison sentence

Confirmation of the shilling that went on from certain individuals during this absolute scandal. What a disgrace!

Well it seems justice has prevailed for once and no surprises there to be honest what a ridiculous bit of behaviour !
