Counties Manukau Police have a warrant to arrest Auckland woman Natalia Burgess and say she is known to frequent the Mangere and Clover Park areas. 

Burgess was jailed for over two years in late 2013 after using fake profiles on Facebook and Bebo to ask for access to teenage boys' social media and bank accounts.

One victim and his mother gave Burgess more than $300, and she changed another boy's Facebook password.

She was also found guilty of obtaining by deception from a Wellington home for young pregnant women in 2006, after she built up a debt of more than $1000 with the home when she wasn't pregnant.
