A 39-year-old single mother-of-four from southwest Sydney allegedly tricked four men she met on an online dating website into giving her more than $2 million.
Police allege she started relationships with the men, two aged in their 60s and two in their 70s, after meeting them through the dating services Lavalife and Meeting Point. The relationships were formed between August 2008 and February 2014, and during that time she only met one of the men in person, police say.
Detectives say is the first arrest for “romance fraud” in New South Wales. “If you suspect you have been deceived and someone has defrauded you, please contact Sydney police immediately,” commander of the Fraud and Cybercrime Squad, Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis, said.
