Woman in south Cyprus scammed of €9,000 by a man she met on dating app

A 38-year-old foreign woman living in Limassol, South Cyprus was scammed out of €9,000 after meeting a man via a dating app.

According to police report, the incident occurred in October but the 38-year-old woman reported the case to the Limassol police department on Friday last week.

The man she met online posed as an Australian soldier who intended to move to Cyprus to live with her and had sent over his personal belongings to facilitate the move.

Shortly after, another person posing as the representative of a transport company said the items had been held up in customs and a sum of €30,000 had to be paid in order to secure their release.

Citing financial difficulties, the man posing as an Australian soldier asked the woman to pay the sum of money herself.

After negotiations, the supposed transport company representative agreed to be paid €9,000 and the woman deposited the amount into an American bank account.

The woman never heard back from the initial scammer and later reported the incident to the police.
