Nigerian american dating site
The duped women believed Captain Morgan Travis was an Afghan war hero looking for love on website
But Captain Travis did not exist and had been invented by fraudster Tosin Femi Olasemo, 38, who was jailed in 2015 for four-and-a-half years after admitting fraud.
In most cases, the scammers log into chat rooms and on Christian dating sites posing as handsome and beautiful Caucasian Americans or Nigerians.
With a remarkable member base of over 2.5 million (and growing), we connect thousands of single men and women internationally.
A spokesman for South Wales Police said: “An investigation revealed that Olasemo had links to Nigerian bank accounts containing more than £150,000 and land purchased in Nigeria for around £47,000.
In addition, he was in possession of more than £1,100 when he was arrested.
Next, a wallet is stolen, someone needs an operation, hotel owners hold the unreal soul mate hostage, and hundreds of dollars is needed to pay the bill.
Also included in the series of events, new plane tickets need to be bought, custom officials must be bribed, not to mention, heavy “get-out-of-jail” bribes.
