A fraudster who fooled The Block into believing she could buy a $4.2million house has perfected the art of grifting so well she is running PR for Ukrainian military.

Emese Fajk, 30, fled Australia after she was exposed as allegedly using fake ANZ Bank slips to win the reality TV show auction in December 2020.

But getting busted only helped the Hungarian-born ‘international conwoman’ hone her swindling skills for her next mark.

Reinventing herself as Abigél Fuchs in Madeira, a Portuguese island chain off the coast of Morocco, she posed as an employee of both the United Nations and Apple.

Gone were the nerdy glasses of the cyber security expert she claimed to be in Melbourne, instead swanning around the tropical island and deep sea diving.

The Block’s ‘international conwoman’ looks unrecognisable as she flees Australia to a remote Portuguese island

There in paradise she met rich crypto trader Steve Silva and played the perfect girlfriend, before allegedly pulling the same bank scam on her landlord, stealing her lover’s electronics, and skipping town.

Fajk’s next act was even more audacious. On Friday she popped up as the Ukrainian foreign legion’s communications director at a press conference in war-torn Kharkiv.

Staring down international media, she introduced legionnaires Aaron and Ryan from the US and Craig from the UK and deftly swatted down probing questions.

Days later, the International Legion of Defense of Ukraine honoured her with a promotional photo posing with an AR-15 assault rifle.

The buyer who failed to settle The Block’s $4.2million house allegedly used the same ‘doctored ANZ Bank receipts’ trick before

‘You can bomb our cities. You can’t bomb the resistance,’ text over the top of the photo of Fajk in camouflage posted on Monday reads.

Fajk began her convincing performance by demanding media not ask questions about two Brazilians legionnaires who were killed in action to ‘respect their families’ privacy’ and that statement will be the only comment.

‘The purpose of this is for us to be able to tell what is really happening in the legion and how things really are,’ she said.

In her only notable misstep of the 21-minute briefing she mistakenly said all three men were American, forgetting Craig was British.
