Custodian falls for romance scam a second time


Six months after admitting he had been duped by international conmen to move more than $3 million to offshore bitcoin accounts, the Apopka custodian who fell for the photograph of a porn star told News 6 he did it again.

The custodian, who asked to remain anonymous, recently received $12,000 in cash from California, Texas and Missouri along with a $20,000 counterfeit check that appeared to be from a physician in Potomac, Maryland.

News 6 confirmed the signature on the check did not match the doctor’s name.

“I just thought in my mind, she wouldn’t lie to me again,” the tearful man said. " She said, ‘I love you, baby. I miss you.’”

This all started because the custodian was convinced the woman he still calls his wife was going to travel to Central Florida in time for his birthday. The money was supposed to be deposited for her travel expenses from Niagara Falls to Orlando.

He told News 6 they were married “spiritually” even though they have never spoken, met in person or even communicated in the last six months.
