Three men have been duped out of nearly $500,000 after an alleged love scam left three people hit with a string of fraud charges.

Queensland Police charged two Benowa women, aged 52 and 29, and a 52-year-old Mermaid Beach man with offences including fraud, receiving tainted property, possessing tainted property and contravening an order about access to information stored electronically for their love scam.

It is alleged the trio defrauded three men between June 2022 and February this year.

Two men in their 70s engaged in a paid dating service after responding to a personal advertisement, making payments to a woman in her 50s who claimed to be a widow.

Police allege the woman claimed she needed large payments to get out of a work contract.

One of the men lost about $42,000 before raising concerns with a friend about a potential scam.
