SPEEDY Oxford Mail readers flooded Glen Brandon’s fundraising page with donations and messages after we reported he was targeted by online scammers.

Wellwishers wrote ‘hold on to the fact that good people outweigh the bad’ and ‘stay strong’, as well as sending generous sums.

Mr Brandon was tricked by fraudsters who emptied his bank while pretending to be from his internet provider.

In total, the scammers stole £10,000 and fraud teams are investigating.

The page, set up by his mum can be found justgiving.com/crowdfunding/lorraine-brandon-3
