On Friday a Bradford woman reported a fraud to South Simcoe Police. She met a man online through the “Christian Mingle” dating site. They talked over the phone and by email.
The victim was persuaded to send $10,000 so that he could come visit her. The next week the suspect requested more money which the victim also sent.
She then had second thoughts and asked the bank to stop the transfer. That’s when she found out that she had been duped.
