75 year old Simon Frost, a British man who was defrauded of £20,000 by a fake African girlfriend he met online has threatened to destroy the whole African continent.
Luck failed Simon could when he was matched with Eva – a young beauty who promised setting up a happy home with him.
From various reports gathered, it was, however, learnt that the woman used portrait of a US p*rn star, Briana Lee, 28, whose photo has been lifted repeatedly by cheats for this very purpose.
According to Celebrities buzz, an online news medium, grandad Simon turned to internet dating after his wife of 10 years left him.
He joined a website called Real s3x Contacts in February 2017 and two months later he was introduced to Eva, who was supposedly a hospital worker from Ghanaian capital Accra. She exchanged her pictures, Simon fell in love and he was persuaded to part with more than £19,000.
In an exchange of messages he even teased out information about his bank cards. But when the time came for them to meet in the UK in August last year, Eva didn’t show up and he has not heard from her since then.
Simon, from Soham, Cambs, said he was speaking out to stop others from falling for the same scam.
During his clarion call for rectitude, he said:
“I genuinely believed the relationship was real. I don’t understand why anyone would treat me like that. I had good intentions and was looking for a genuine relationship. “It has put me off trying anything like this ever again. “I would rather be lonely than go through all of this trauma.”
Simon said he and Eva had called each other “babe” and “husband” and talked of buying a house for a new life together. But she was spinning a web of lies to get him to part with his money.
She said she needed cash to get court documents so that she could access her father’s £5million inheritance which included a stash of gold. Simon sent £6,000 savings, £3,000 on credit cards and two £5,000 advances from payday loan company Amigo.
He also paid £1,600 for Eva’s flight to the UK in August– when he expected her to repay him. But Eva failed to turn up and when he was unable to contact her it became clear he had been scammed.
Simon has now declared to destroy Africa continent as a whole since Eva who duped him is from Africa.
