Lauter-Bernsbach/Chemnitz (dpa/sn) - Over five months, a woman in the Ore Mountains lent a digital lover a total of 90,000 euros. Believing in his serious intentions, the 51-year-old repeatedly transferred money to various German accounts between September 2021 and February 2022, as the Chemnitz police department announced on Wednesday. She borrowed it from relatives and took out loans from banks. With daily messages and personal pictures via messenger, the supposed partner won her trust and pretended to live in the UK, to be stuck in ever-changing financial difficulties, but to give her the money back when they met face-to-face. His identity and the fraud known as "Love Scam" is still being determined, it said.
