How a ‘very charming’ man named Kevin swindled a Sydney woman out of $220,000

When the Sydney woman questioned him, he eventually confessed he was 20 years old and trapped in a scamming operation run from a compound in Cambodia.

When a Sydney woman met Kevin online, she was swept off her feet. He said all the right things and shared photos of his extended family and his impressive jet-set lifestyle.

“Everything he said was very sweet and very charming,” she said.

The photos of himself he sent were of a mature-age man on visits to Paris and London, skiing in Norway and drinking fine wine. There were selfies of him with his family, a video of his daughter playing piano and even one of him skydiving. He said he was a businessman based in Singapore and aged in his 40s.
