Man Discovers His Online Girlfriend Of 2.5 Years Is Fake—After Paying Her $200,000

A 48-year-old man in Naperville, Illinois must be crying his eyes out right now because he was recently finally forced to face reality about a few things.

You see, apparently he called the police because he feared that his online girlfriend of 2.5 years had been kidnapped a little while back. But instead of investigators rushing to rescue a damsel in distress, they informed the man that she didn’t even exist—and that the drivers licence photo “she” had shown him in the past was just an image from a sample Florida licence.
Sad news, right?

Oh, but it gets worse:

The man told police he had wired $US200,000 to the woman during the relationship to different bank accounts in Nigeria, Malaysia, England and the United States.
