A Derby woman who falsely claimed to be collecting money for charity has been jailed for a year and given a three-year Anti Social Behaviour Order.
Many of Lisa Dillon's victims were also told she needed money for a train fare to visit her desperately ill father.
Dillon, 24, from Havelock Road in Normanton, had visited homes throughout Derby claiming to be a trainee nurse or teacher collecting money for a charity balloon jump.
At an earlier hearing she had admitted 19 counts of deception.
On Thursday she asked for a further 35 to be taken into consideration.
Derby Crown Court heard she was eventually caught last month after a Mickleover man answered the door to her a few days after being warned about the scam.
He followed Dillon until the police arrived to arrest her.
The Anti Social Behaviour Order bans her from calling at the homes of people she does not know.
