Santander alerts customers to scam which saw woman hand over £2,000 | Personal Finance | Finance


Réka, who is single, fell victim to the scam for over two months before realising something was wrong.

She continued: “We decided we wanted to meet up in person, but he said there was a tariff of £10,195 that he needed me to lend him.

“I paid £2,000 and explained that was all I could afford – but he then demanded I sell my apartment, take out a mortgage and borrow money from friends.”

When she declined, the fraudster bombarded her with messages, pleading: “Sell some jewellery to get the money… my love, you have options, I know it.”
