Whodunit?

This is quite an interesting article posted in the local papers. Now who's to blame? Let me know what you think of this fiasco which is a very common thing these days on the net.

Blackmailer arrested: Police have arrested an unidentified Egyptian fraudster for stealing money and blackmailing 50 Kuwaiti women, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting a reliable security source. The same source said police began looking for the man — who spoke in a Kuwaiti dialect and claimed to belong to a wealthy Kuwaiti family — a Kuwaiti woman, whose identity has not been disclosed filed a complaint with the police accusing the man of promising to marry her. The woman said her ‘suitor’ claimed he was running short of money and asked to borrow KD 10,000. He also said all his money was invested in various business ventures. The victim said she took a bank loan and gave the money to the suspect. However, after receiving the money he disappeared. Intensive police investigation led securitymen to an outhouse (mulhaq) in Salmiya where the suspect was holed up.

It has been reported the suspect picked his victims from the Internet chat room and with his sweet talk promised to marry them. He also hired luxurious cars, took his dates to well-known restaurants, showered gifts on them and did the disappearing act after luring them to part with money. Police found on the suspect’s computer love messages, photographs of his victims and pledges written by his victims stating they had sex with him. When some of his victims discovered he was a fraudster, he threatened to blackmail them. One of the suspect’s victims is believed to be a 12-year-old girl, whose photograph was found on the suspect’s computer. During interrogation the suspect admitted to having sex with most of his victims. Police will summon the victims to identify the suspect from a legal lineup.

Talk about desperate women...

I wonder where that chat is, I'd like to pay a visit and see how women look like in there. Though, I feel sorry for them, especially the one who had to loan 10K KD. Well, as you say, desperate women!

I always pay for women, they never pay me back :'(

I disagree with Swair on that one (aren't you being a little harsh there?). The women were probably more naive than stupid - and that's probably from having lived a sheltered life. I'm surprised he's the only con artist they found so far. Kuwaiti women are the easiest targets for cons, especially widowed or divorced older women.
Then again, Kuwait is a small country, any woman worth her mettle would've spoken to her family about a suitor. That's why your family is there: to make sure you don't fall into these traps. Good article :)

mood: its everywhere.

jay: u & ur za3tar :/

swair: stupidity comes in all shapes & sizes. Its so sad though :/

mcarabian: I call it desperation to escape the sheltered life in most cases I've known personally. There are more of these con artists out there for sure. I'm glad you liked this :)
