A gambling addict who conned almost $800,000 from businessmen she met on Tinder and gave deadly threats to her victims' families has been jailed for four years.
Jocelyn Zakhour, 41, had been living as a VIP member in Melbourne's Crown Casino when she falsely told two men she needed money to invest into a blueberry and tobacco farm in NSW.
