Bolzano, November 23 - An elderly woman in search
of friendship risked falling victim to a conman encountered on
Facebook after pretending to be 40 years younger than her actual
age.
The 80-year-old, from Bolzano in the northern autonomous
province of South Tyrol, met her 'soulmate' after posting a
photograph of herself taken when she was several decades
younger.
The man, a German from Munich, pretended to be unemployed
and penniless and threatened to kill himself unless she sent him
money.
Concerned for his wellbeing, the woman alerted the police
who contacted their German counterparts.
Investigations subsequently showed that the man had a
regular job and lived in a comfortable home with his wife and
two children.
He has been reported for attempted fraud and in Germany
must answer to raising a false alarm.
