A conman was forced to beg for forgiveness after a prankster father dressed up in drag to pretend to be a vulnerable woman and then exposed his scam online.

David Walker, 39, asked his daughter to put make-up on him and created a fake Facebook profile named 'Julian Le Flange' to lure online predators after a family friend was conned into handing over thousands of pounds in an online romance.

The father-of-two was soon approached by a 'religious pastor' from Nigeria who quickly declared his love for Julian before asking for $900 (£690) so that he could get a flight to the UK.

However Mr Walker took advantage of the scammer's eagerness to get his hands on the cash by luring him into a hilarious exchange that ended with the father sending a photo of his daughter's toys labelled as the 'Western Union shop'.

But he was subsequently banned by Facebook for 'breaching the firm's anti-bullying policy'.
