Britain’s ‘worst mother’ Karen Matthews gets second mystery letter

Loathed Karen Matthews has been told ‘Pack your bags and you leave NOW’ in a second mystery letter offering her £50,000 to quit Britain.

The mum-of-seven, bride-to-be is convinced the notes are genuine and she is desperate to get her hands on the cash as quickly as possible.

It comes after the 44-year-old – dubbed Britain’s worst mum – got the first one a fortnight ago.

Matthews is engaged to convicted child abuser Paul Saunders, 57. The paedophile, from Blackbird Leys, Oxford, was jailed five years for abusing a vulnerable girl over three years.

Matthews was jailed in 2008 for staging her daughter Shannon’s abduction in a bid to obtain the reward money.

The figure offered is the same amount she tried to get in reward money for faking her daughter Shannon’s kidnap.

A source said she is now trying to think of ways to hoodwink the mystery donor to convince them she is off.

The second note – in the same handwriting – also accuses Matthews of being a ‘lying cow.’

It comes after reports she wants to have a baby with her new fiancee.

The letter reads: ‘By hand (its ok). Dear Karen, again you give falseness and false stories!!!

‘Stop f*****g lying to me, us and everyone.’

It continues: ‘I know of your so called ‘boyfriend’ and he’s said no such f*****g things you lying cow!! Babies??? B******s!!!!

‘Pack your bags and you leave NOW.

‘Run a story proving you’re leaving and you’ll get paid. Bye.’

A source said: ‘Karen is just hellbent on getting hands on the money.

‘She can’t stop thinking about anything else.

‘She is trying to think of ways she can get the cash without having to leave straight away or at all.

‘If she got the £50,000 through her letterbox she would move out that day.’

Matthews has angered locals in the town in the south of the country where she moved to after she was released from prison. Neighbours are annoyed because she deems herself a celebrity after getting engaged to handyman Saunders, 57.

The first note – dated January 11 – reads: ‘By hand. Don’t panic.

‘Dear Miss Karen or whatever you call yourself now.

‘I speak on behalf of many people.

‘I will happily give you £50k you still seem to be searching for… In return I require you shut the f**k up and leave the country!!

‘No f**king kidding. Think hard on this. I’ll be in touch. Bye.’

Matthews got engaged with a charity shop ring over Christmas and is planning a make-over – including weight loss and having her teeth done – before the wedding. She has piled on two stone after getting hooked on Haribo sweets.

She is worried about her hair falling out due to stress and after dying it for years to hide her identity. She is hoping to get a celebrity agent too before her nuptials.

Convicted paedophile Saunders was jailed for five years in 2010 for sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl.

He was arrested on suspicion of breaching his parole terms two weeks ago but was later released. Cops were called to her home last Wednesday over reports of a row between the couple.

Matthews and her then-partner’s uncle Michael Donovan were jailed for staging her daughter Shannon’s abduction in a bid to pocket reward money 12 years ago.

Donovan, now 51, kept the youngster drugged in his flat in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, for 24 days.

Police then raided it and found her hidden inside a divan bed base.

The pair were each jailed for eight years after being convicted of kidnapping, false imprisonment and perverting justice.

Matthews was freed in 2012 after doing just four years.
