The teenager passed away two years ago aged 19 after forgetting to take her inhaler to work.

She tragically suffered a heart-attack triggered by her breathing condition during a shift at Glasgow‘s Gin 71.

Loved ones then had to make the harrowing decision to turn off Rangers-mad Lauren’s life support — as she lay in a hospital bed wearing a Gers top and scarf of her tragic idol Fernando Ricksen.

Now mum Elaine has spoken of her heartbreak after sick trolls posed as her dead daughter on fake social media profiles.

She told the Daily Record: “I have experienced the worst possible hurt and pain in my life after losing my daughter, so the trolls can’t do much to me now.

“Sometimes even seeing Lauren’s face can make me cry. Seeing these profiles using her pictures is really hard.

“Unfortunately catfishing is just something I’ve been forced to get used to over the last two years.”

Elaine has also discovered fake fundraisers raising cash under her daughter’s name online.

She added: “People even try to make money out of my daughter’s death with fake fundraisers.

“Last year when the police came to my door demanding to speak to Lauren, I had to convince them she was dead.

“Someone who knew her had got lifted and gave the officers her name and address. It was awful.

“That made me so angry. How dare anyone put me in that position and have police come looking for my dead daughter.

“What do people get out of doing that? I have a tough exterior though so I won’t let trolls break me.”
