And that cost the 48-year-old man a whooping $200,000. Chicago Sun-Times reports, the man from Naperville, Illinois was shocked when the police told him that his girlfriend of more than two years, actually never existed.
The guy is told to be in relationship with the so-called girlfriend for two and a half years and it seems they had never met in that time. In that time he wired about $200,000 in cash to his cyber-girlfriend to several bank accounts in Nigeria, Malaysia, England and the United States.
The love affair fell in "trouble" when he called Naperville police on Wednesday to ask for their help in locating the woman. He believed, she was kidnapped in London. The only identification card possessed by the boyfriend was actually a a sample Florida driver’s license.
This story should be an eye-opener for those who are having affair online – without meeting your girl/boyfriend.
