40 men in Taiwan cheated by love con

TAIWAN - A 36-year-old woman has cheated 40 men out of more than NT$10 million (S$421,400) using 24 different roles over about three months in Taiwan, taiwan.cn reported.

The woman, surnamed Chen, was once a principal member of a fraud group, and established her own business after the group was broken up at the beginning of the year.

Chen picked 40 men from among a group of men who had been defrauded before. She even had sexual relationships with the men to obtain their trust.

One of the victims is a 60-year-old land agent who has been cheated out of more than NT$1 million.

Chen was detained while meeting with a man, as the man called police after he recognised her.

The case is still under investigation.
