Bride-To-Be Scams Groom And Groomsmen Out Of $17,000

Chris Mahone, 27, was left utterly heartbroken when his fiancée scammed him and thirty of his friends out of $17,000 after she organized a fake bachelor party in retaliation to cheating allegations. Rachel Doran, Mr. Mahone’s runaway bride, allegedly promised to organize Mr. Mahone’s stag trip, taking deposits from him and all of his friends for their getaway to Ibiza.

It wasn’t until the group went to fly out of the airport that they realized Ms. Doran had scammed them and that their holiday was a lie.

Having since been disowned by her own family, Ms. Doran is currently living in a caravan park after she scammed her fiancé and his 30 mates out of $17,000 in a pretend stag trip. Ms. Doran managed to persuade her fiancé to let her organize the trip, before she demanded $580 from all 30 of the men.

Hoping to convince her fiancé and his pals that their stag trip was legitimate, Ms. Doran even went as far as to forge boarding passes and hotel confirmations.

“We got there with the boarding passes, with Jet2 on the top and Cumbria Travel at the bottom. There was a reference number and everything,” a member of the stag party explained.

“We handed it in at the check-in desk but there was no record of us. We then phoned the hotel in Ibiza and they’d never heard of us.”

Mr. Mahone was left confused after airport staff turned them away, frantically calling Ms. Doran and his parents at home. When Mr. Mahone could not get in contact with Ms. Doran, he knew something was amiss: "we couldn’t get hold of her. She just vanished.”

Left stranded at the airport and completely heartbroken, nine of the group members were determined to “make the best out of a bad situation,” and decided to book a last minute flight to Ibiza. “They offered us $197 return so we said ‘F**k it, we’re off to Magaluf.’"

"To be honest, we haven’t even booked a flight back,” one of the nine men stated.

Ms. Doran, who fled the home she shared with Mr. Mahone immediately after he left for his supposed stag trip, has been disowned and disgraced by her own family, with her own brother speaking out against her.

“She’s got no family now. How a person can do something like that is beyond me,” Ryan, Ms. Doran’s brother stated. “Evil cow. No morals.”

Mr. Mahone’s loyal friends were quick to show their support to their companion, with one of Mr. Mahone’s friends stating that “Chris is the nicest person in the world, I just can’t believe it’s happened to him.”

Ms. Doran’s grandmother, Monica McKee, has shed some light on her granddaughter’s actions, revealing that Ms. Doran has a history of never repaying money. “Her parents are just devastated, embarrassed and disgusted- they won’t even come out of the house,” Ms. McKee confessed.

“We’ve all done everything for her and all she’s done is throw it back in our faces. You give her money and you don’t get it back. She even put in for a loan under my name — for $13,190,” she concluded.
