Man from Tinder Scammed 2 Women out of $26,000

Manhattan District Attorney recently announced the indictment of a 35-year-old individual for scamming $26,000 out of 2 women he dated on the well-known online dating app Tinder. The attorney had to admit that the classic dating scams of yesteryear were still thriving on the Internet, as the Attorney office is currently seeing an increase in the number of scammers targeting singles online.

The criminal complaint states that Brandon Kiehm, a dog walker, registered on Tinder as Tristan Acocella, a Goldman Sachs banker. Last summer, he allegedly “matched” with a woman through Tinder, and the couple dated for a few months. Then the man began asking the victim for money needed for his sister undergoing cancer treatment, telling her that his wallet had been stolen and promising to pay back as soon as possible. The woman allegedly gave the scammer about $14,000.

Another victim also met the same man on Tinder and dated him for a few weeks in the fall. Again, the scammer asked her for money to help his mother undergoing cancer treatment, complaining that he had been robbed. The second woman allegedly gave him about $12,000.

Both women were paid back their money soon enough but with checks drawn on closed accounts, which, of course, were rejected by their banks. After the police officers contacted the defendant’s mother, she told that neither she nor her daughter had ever had cancer.

However, this is not the whole story. It turned out that Kiehm is also charged with another kind of online scam. According to the prosecutors, he allegedly stole the debit card data of one of his dog-walking clients and then used it to launch a Venmo account, ultimately charging about $13,000 to the card. If you do not know, Venmo is a mobile payment service used to make P2P money transfers. As a result, Brandon Kiehm has been charged with 5 felony counts of grand larceny, identity theft and scheme to defraud.

It should be noted that the larger amount of dating scams was registered in 2014: according to the annual report published by the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, there were close to 5,900 incidents of online dating scams that in total resulted in the theft of about $87 million. Most often, women older than 40 were targeted.

Admiral_Smith avatarI remember messing around with blind friend invites from facebook and the women eventually asked for a few hundred bucks because they got stranded in some foreign country and wanted it wired via Western Union. Of course, it was fun flirting with them until they asked for wired cash. Only silly people would wire money from online dating but some people are probably just that nice to help someone out and are gullible as Elmer Fudd falling for a cross dressed Bugs Bunny.
