27-year old Love/Hate star Susan Loughnane became victim to a scam when she tried to book a holiday in the sun.
Known to any fans of the series as Debbie, Susan had tried to place a deposit for a house in the Algarve in southern Portugal when she realised her messages had never reached the owner.
Trying to book her sunshine break through rental firm Owners Direct she realised she had been hit by a scam.
The Mirror reports the actress said she had paid €500 for a villa in the popular holiday spot, but she said that her correspondence with the company had been intercepted by a scam artist who attempted to steal her information.

She said about the scam, “when we got in touch with the owner of the villa recently after paying the deposit, he'd never heard of us and said he didn't have a booking."
@OwnersDirect I already did. No response. JOKE! Will be singing about this all over the media. Good luck.

She took to twitter on Monday to address the company directly and received a reply within an hour.
The redhead was due to spend 10 days soaking up the sun and has said she’s been offered different accommodation by the company. Unfortunately she says the accommodation offered was too expansive compared to what she had tried to book first.
The holiday was supposed to be sunshine filled getaway for her and fiancé David Doyle, the pair announced their engagement earlier this year.
Susan is also set to star in the new series of Hardy Bucks later on this year.
