SIOUX FALLS, SD – A Sioux Falls man has learned the hard way that not everything that glitters is gold.

According to Sioux Falls police, the 46-year-old victim thought he was sending money to the lawyer of his Nigerian, online girlfriend. In turn, that would free up some money that was going to be given to her.

As it turns out, the whole thing was likely a scam, and the man is out $1,600.
