The accused allegedly managed to defraud one Virginia woman out of $6.5m. He’s also implicated in another $350,000 business email compromise (“BEC”) scam targeting a Georgia based company.

“Online romance scams and business email compromise frauds have increasingly become the method of choice for transnational fraudsters targeting U.S. residents and companies,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak.

“In this case, a single victim allegedly lost millions. This is a stark reminder that users of online dating websites should be aware of such scams and exercise extreme caution if asked for money by anyone online or over the phone.”
