Love Island winner Tayla Damir went though every traveller's worst nightmare when she was left stranded in Lebanon with no money, after hackers targeted her bank accounts and 'stole her identity'.

The reality star, 22, had been targeted by hackers who 'cleaned out' both her business and personal bank accounts while she has been travelling around Europe. 

Taking to Instagram, Tayla told her followers that she is now safely back in Australia after the frightening ordeal that saw her seek help from the Australian Embassy in Lebanon, only to be told there was nothing they could do. 

Sharing snaps of her lounging on a yacht overseas, Tayla told fans: 'I’ve landed back in Australia and God it feels good to be home safe.'

She had been travelling through Greece and Lebanon, but was left stranded after hackers targeted her accounts while she was away. 

Tayla previously revealed new bank cards sent to her home address had been stolen, her accounts had been 'wiped clean' and she wouldn't be reimbursed for weeks.
