Rebecca Ferguson - Police Investigating Rebecca Ferguson Fraud Claims

Police in the U.K. are investigating allegations British singer Rebecca Ferguson was the victim of a $150,000 (£100,000) fraud.

The pop star claims she was tricked by conmen in March (13), leaving her out of pocket after a business deal turned out to be a set-up.

Officers in Merseyside, England have arrested two suspects in connection with the investigation but are yet to bring charges.

A statement from the force reads, "The investigation is ongoing and no one has been charged at the moment. Two people, a male and a female, have been arrested for fraud for false representation. They are due to answer police bail the week commencing December 9."

Ferguson admits her naivety upon shooting to fame on the 2010 series of U.K. talent show The X Factor made her easy prey for conmen.

She tells Britain's Daily Record, "I put too much trust in people and for that reason they took advantage of me. I had money, well over £100,000, stolen from me from people I trusted who sought to gain from me. It's really disgusting. It's the betrayal.

"I think I was so naive to the world but I feel I have become a woman now and am more aware of what goes on in the world. Not everyone is good."
