A man (in London) stole his date's cell phone when she couldn't split the bill with him.
The woman left the date, but the man followed her and kept asking her for money. When she pulled out her phone, the man grabbed it and ran off.
A couple cops ended up catching the man. He told them he didn't play on keeping her phone but was holding it hostage until she agreed to help pay for the date.
The two met on a dating site.
Also, a 66 year-old Silver Springs Shores, Florida woman was recently scammed out of $50,000 by a man she met on match.com. 'Thomas Benneth' claimed he was an overseas contractor. He asked for money to build a bridge in Malaysia. The woman started sending cash and was under the impression Benneth was going to marry her and move to the U.S.. He stopped corresponding after receiving his last payment.
