Woman jailed for launching hate campaign against herself



A woman has been jailed after launching a hate campaign against herself, causing police to waste hundreds of hours after they thought she was targeted by someone else.



Carly Buckingham-Smith, 38, sent herself abusive texts and graffitied her own house. She then told police she was being targeted by "Asian males" when in fact she’d made the whole thing up.



She used her own phone to send threatening messages like: "I am going to tie you up and slit your throat and watch you bleed."



In another, a threat was made to "put petrol through her letterbox and set it alight".



She even scrawled offensive graffiti all over her own house.



The cleaner, from Eastleigh, Hampshire, made 11 witness statements to police concerning the texts, claiming she was being harassed.Latest Post
