A 27-YEAR-old woman only realised her online “boyfriend” was actually a woman six months into the relationship, Sin Chew Daily reported.
Chen, from Taiwan, said she befriended the “man” known as Guo in January.
In hindsight, Chen said Guo would give various excuses not to appear in front of the camera during their occasional video calls.
They would usually just message one another.
Chen, on her part, had even gone naked several times during their video calls.
She had also sent several nude pictures of herself to Guo.
Guo also convinced Chen to send T$100,000 (RM15,000) during their six-month courtship for an insurance investment scheme that promised high returns.
The pair eventually broke off following a disagreement over the investment scheme.
Chen lodged a police report when Guo refused to return her money and threatened to expose her nude pictures.
Subsequent police investigations revealed that Guo was a 35-year-old woman known as Lin.
Lin, who had been arrested, admitted she had misused a man’s picture and personal data to sign up for a social media account.
