SAPS explained that the scammers would create fake accounts on online dating sites to lure women.

After chatting to the victims for a while, the scammers start coming up with different scenarios to convince the women to send them money through a bank deposit or electronic transfer.

The female suspect is believed to be the one who cashed out all the money deposited by victims.

She was found with R50,000 in cash when she was arrested.

SAPS urged all women who have been victims of online dating scams to come forward, so that their matters could also be investigated.

The six suspects, aged between 27 and 37, will appear before the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court today, facing charges of online dating fraud.

The Hawks have warned users of online dating sites to be wary of depositing money into bank accounts of ‘potential suitors’‚ saying the number of fraud cases related to online dating is a cause for concern.

Seven women have been discovered to have been conned by a Nigerian national based in Cape Town‚ Ikechukwu Dibie.

Dibie‚ 36 used online dating sites to target his victims — women in their fifties — by pretending to be looking for a relationship with them.
