A renowned Isle of Wight conman Lord Andrew Francis 53 aka Andrew Francis, Andrew Brown, of Prospect Road, Newport on the Isle of Wight has been up to his old tricks again we can reveal.
Low life Frances boasted he was an established businessman and with a sizeable income and lifestyle to match, when in fact he is a compulsive liar who purchased his title on line and lives in his Walter Mitty life with partner Lady Emma Francis, aka Emma Pearce nee Fletcher 43 who is carer for Francis’s sick mother at the Housing Association Property at Number 2 Prospect Road in Newport on the Island.
Francis claimed that he was once a top chef and had worked at Sandown racecourse in Esher, Surrey and he used to solely produce 1500 breakfasts daily at the Puckpool Park cafe in Ryde that was owned by his family.
But this time the despicable crook has stooped to an all time low by involving a sick vulnerable Pensioner and using her bank account to carry out the conspiracy to obtain monies by deception. which has resulted in the account being frozen by Natwest Bank.
The Vulnerable Pensioner is in fact his mother Mum 79 year old Sheila Brown who is suffering with dementia. The wife of former Highly respected and remembered Frederick Henry John Brown known as “Freddy”.
Remember the man who was a familiar sight year on year manning the Poppy Appeal stall in Morrison’s Supermarket in Newport.
The con-artist’s father “Freddy” who served in the Eighth Army in World War two who had also been a member of the Royal British Legion for over 50 years with half of that service served here on the island.
Many Pals have branded Francis “truly despicable” being the main orchestrator of the fraud of obtaining money by deception by selling title of a lease on a Ryde business that he did not have permission to sell. A close family friend and neighbour said “Freddy will be turning in his grave, he would be ashamed of Andrew and his actions If he were alive today”. “Andrew has always been the black sheep of the family”. “To exploit his own vulnerable mother who is sick and suffering with dementia is the lowest of the low.”
He also works closely with his partner in crime Emma Francis. It appears both Andrew and Emma Francis are deluded, they both seem to live in a Walter Mittie world, lying their way from one pile of trouble into another. When they deal with anyone they insist on being called Lord and Lady? A spokesperson from a well-known commercial catering supplier located in Sandown commented “they used to call us all the time and insist we referred to them as Lord and Lady, behind the scenes we couldn’t stop laughing to ourselves. It was comical. Sad people I guess.
The pair have lived at several locations : Basingstoke, North Waltham, Wincanton(Near Bath), Salisbury, Shrewton, Gosport, Warminster, Alersford, Fareham, Bilston, Tipton, Lichfield including the Island over the past 10 years along with having over 25 different contact number and seems to have left a trial of devastation behind themselves where ever they have been.
Speaking to Pearce’s daughter at Needwood Hill in Lichfield She said: “We hate her, my mum (Emma) she left us and my sick dad and has disowned me and brother and grandchildren to be with this conman we hate her for it and will never forgive the damage and hurt she has caused my dad.
