Well, this is one of the most one-way relationships ever. As in, a truckload of money went one way, and “virtually” nothing went the other way … As reported by The Naperville Sun
A Naperville man is out $200,000 after wiring money to an online girlfriend he didn’t realize was a fake.
NOOOOO! 200,000 clams! And it would have continued, had the scammer not overdone it.
The 48-year-old man called Naperville police at 6:57 p.m. Wednesday to ask for help in rescuing the woman, whom he believed had been kidnapped in London, according to a police report.
He told police he started the relationship online 2 1/2 years ago. During that time, the man wired about $200,000 total to several different bank accounts in Nigeria, Malaysia, England and the United States, according to the police report.
An identification card the woman provided to the man was a sample driver’s license from Florida, the report said. According to the report, when the officer stated the female did not exist, the man “was in disbelief.”
Hopefully he has some cash left, and stays off the internet … Here’s the source.
