Morris and Beech sent applicants’ details to Wonga and then advised them to cancel their bank cards once the money was in their account so the company could not take payments.
Morris, of Wicklow Street, Middlesbrough, took 50 per cent of any loan and divided it up between himself and Beech.
The 36 year old, who was described as attempting to turn his life around, was jailed for a year by the Recorder of Middlesbrough, Judge Simon Bourne Arton after admitting conspiracy to defraud between May 18, 2012 and May 19, 2013.
A total of 159 counterfeit items were seized by trading standards officers from her and included Polo by Ralph Lauren, Adidas and Nike branded clothing items, UGG footwear, Vans shoes, Vivienne Westwood jewellery and Calvin Klein underwear.
She had boasted in text messages that she had sold 21,000 worth of stock in a three week period and made 7,000 profit in the course of a fortnight.
Beech, who was said to have since begun a legitimate bouncy castle business, received a 12 month jail sentence, suspended for two years, an 18 month long supervision order and was told to do 140 hours unpaid work.
Five other defendants at court those who applied for the loans admitted fraud.
Johnathan Sadler, 27, of Abingdon Road and Joanne Black, 37, of Ross Street, both Middlesbrough, were each given 12 month community orders and Sadler 40 hours unpaid work.
Heather Donnelly, 31, of Regent Road, Anthony Knipes, 24, of Alnwick Court and Natalie Brown, 23, of Bow Street, all Middlesbrough, each received an 18 month conditional discharge.
