A Mongolian woman was swindled out of USD 77,000 in a “devastating” romance scam, police have said.
The woman met the fraudster via a Facebook and developed a relationship in 2020. She was persuaded to transfer her money to her online lover, who is so-called American businessman Aliso Camelove, with the promise of a repayment threshold. However, the promise was never kept.
The victim has transferred a total of USD 77 thousand through 18 transactions through Golomt Bank of Mongolia. After two months, the woman realized that she has been swindled and contacted to the police. The Mongolian police contacted to US Consulate in Turkey and tried to identify that who the Aliso Camelove was. However, there was anyone who registered in US citizenship under name Aliso Camelove.
In similar cases, three Mongolian women swindled out of totaling USD 443,400.
