A 51-year-old divorced mother of two was taken for a wild ride by a scammer to the tune of over $10k. A man saying his name was ‘Michael’ connected with Sunita Brittain on Facebook Dating in January, and she said she couldn’t believe how much she had in common with the man who said he was a millionaire owner of a global engineering company and a cryptocurrency analyst.
After the pair were matched, he moved the conversation over to WhatsApp. He eventually told her he was “in jail” and needed the money to get out, having spent huge sums on the family of one of his workers after a “tragic accident.” She had the bank freeze her account when a friend made her realize she’d been scammed.
