AUSTRALIAN woman Samantha Azzopardi, who duped Irish authorities last year into thinking she was an Eastern European child sex slave, has allegedly attempted a similar story in Canada.

Azzopardi, 26, from Campbelltown in Sydney's southwest, walked into a Calgary health centre on September 16 alleging she was a 14-year-old who was the victim of an abduction and prolonged sexual assault, Canadian authorities said on Monday.

Azzopardi, using the alias Aurora Hepburn, allegedly told investigators she had endured years of violent sexual abuse and torture.

It was not until last Thursday that the Calgary Police Service was notified of a similar, world headline-making case investigated last year in Dublin.

Staff Sergeant Kelly Campbell, of Calgary Police Service's Child Abuse Unit, said it initially took Azzopardi's allegations very seriously.

"There was considerable impact to a lot of the professionals that were working on this investigation as we were led to believe that this was an actual occurrence," Campbell said at a media conference on Monday, Global News reported.

"Our concern was that there were actual victims out there, more victims."

After liaising with Irish authorities, it was determined the woman in Calgary was Azzopardi — she has at least 40 aliases.

Azzopardi is charged with public mischief to mislead a peace officer and faces up to five years' jail.

Due to her multiple aliases, Calgary police have released a photo of Azzopardi in the hope the public can provide information about her movements in Calgary.

Irish authorities last year also took the rare step of releasing her photo after she was found wandering Dublin streets and led Irish police to believe that she was a teenage sex-trafficking victim.

Azzopardi drew pictures apparently showing herself being raped, forcing Irish police to release the photo of her in a bid to find her identity.

Azzopardi was subsequently sent back to Australia, where she had a history of fraud-related charges.

The Australian Federal Police declined to comment on the case, saying it was a matter for Canadian authorities.
