She had spent almost six years in a Cambodian prison after she was lured into an internet love scam and then manipulated into become a Mule for the scammers!
MS. TAYLOR WAS ORIGINALLY SENTENCED TO 23 YEARS IN PRISON FOR CARRYING 2KG OF HEROIN
After an international consortium of entities working on her behalf convinced a Cambodian Appeal Court, a judge has ruled she was an “innocent victim” of a scam
However, there are many other known Australian, British, American, New Zealand, Canadian, and other victims of the same “romance scam into a mule” that face faced or are facing this right now! One of them is «Here: The Current Story of Another Innocent Romance Scam Victim Facing Prison»
The Story of Her Release from Australia’s ABC News:
A Cambodian court ruled that Yoshe Ann Taylor, 47, was an innocent victim of a drug-smuggling operation, duped by a man she thought loved her and wanted to help her.
Ms. Taylor was confused and overwhelmed as she arrived at Brisbane airport this morning, where she was met by her Australian lawyer, Alex Wilson.
“We’re just overjoyed that this happened,” Ms Wilson said as she ushered Ms Taylor away.
“This is going to be a difficult time for her as she readies herself for this period in her life.”
Ms. Taylor was reunited with her children soon afterwards.
On her way home from what she thought was a legitimate business trip in 2013, Cambodian police found about 2 kilograms of heroin stitched into the lining of a backpack she was carrying.
Since the former primary school teacher was arrested in September that year, she has maintained that her new friend, whom she knew as Precious Max but whose real name is Precious Chineme Nwoko, asked her to carry home some local artefacts that Ms Taylor thought were for the arts and craft business she was hoping to set up with his assistance.
Before agreeing, she had checked the bag Nwoko gave her and found nothing untoward in it.
Ms Taylor was shocked when police stopped her and a young woman she thought was Nwoko’s business associate at the airport and found heroin hidden in the bag.
In 2014, Nigerian national Nwoko was sentenced to 27 years in jail, and 19-year-old Charlene Savarino to 25 years. They are both still serving time in prison.
Ms Taylor was sentenced to 23 years, a verdict that was upheld on appeal in 2016. Her children would be adults by the time she was free. But fresh evidence meant her case was reopened last year.

Every Day Romance Scam Victims Are Manipulated Into Becoming Unknowing Mules For Scammers
If this did not happen for you, consider yourself lucky. Because the ones that got caught are all around the world.
The manipulation can be so strong that even after they have been told to stop they are powerless to break the gaslighting and denial that holds them secure. It is a sad testament also that so many in the public and even other victims blame them and want to see them in jail, including so-called self-styled advocates.
Two Of The Fundamental Tenets Of The SCARS Mandate Under The NOVA Standard Are:
- Recognize the interests of the client (victim) as a primary responsibility.
- Respect and protect the client’s (victim’s) civil and legal rights.
Yet Cases Like These Are Becoming Increasingly Common
We fear that in time it will trickle down to start affecting regular victims as more and more catastrophic case law is established in Western Countries and around the world.
In this case, justice prevailed, but it took years and multiple appeals to succeed. What would have happened if those that supported this victim had not had the courage to stand up for her? She would still be in prison, as are so many others.
SCARS will do all in its power to provide victims with the assistance they need, be it emotional support or legal. We are here to support victims’ rights not those of Facebook and Big Tech like others!

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
- The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network « HERE » or on « www.Anyscam.com »
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
