(HAMPTON FALLS, N.H.) Police here are investigating complaints of online dating fraud.
Police Chief Robbie Dirsa said scam artists stole thousands of dollars from two women who thought they had a romantic relationship.
Dirsa said one woman met a man online in 2002 through Yahoo Personals. He said she loaned him $109,000 over the course of a year for an alleged trucking business.
Dirsa said they went out on a few dates though police aren't sure if the man she dated is the same person she met online. He didn't repay the money and the woman hasn't heard from him.
This spring, another woman began e-mailing a man she met through an online dating service. She never met him in person. He told her he was an American citizen working in Nigeria. He asked for money and she sent him $10,000.
