Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way

Police believe there could be dozens of victims linked to a “cruel” romance scam across Australia after two elderly men came forward with their stories.

Key points:

  • Investigations began once the elderly men came forward
  • Police alleged they were defrauded of almost half a million dollars
  • Three people are due to face court

The two men — one from near Toowoomba and another from Far North Queensland — signed up to what they thought was a personal advertisement for paid dating service last year, according to police. 

Once the men paid the service they were put into contact with a woman who claimed to be a widow aged in her 50s. 

Police said as they got to know each other the woman asked for large sums of money, which she allegedly needed to get out of a work contract. 

Both men paid the woman large sums of money — of $42,000 and $343,500 respectively — before they eventually went to police.
