Woman reports being scammed by person she met on match.com

June 18, 2014

A resident reported being the victim of a scam June 4 after sending money to a person she met on match.com May 8.

According to the Shorewood police report:

She and the person, who said he was a contractor working on an oil pipeline, communicated by email, phone and instant messaging.

After a short time, that person on match.com said he needed $5,000 to continue his work and asked her to send that amount via Western Union. She did.

He then said he needed another $4,000. She sent just $2,000 and he immediately asked her where the other $2,000 was.

It was then she called police.
