Serial heartbreaker nabbed!!
KUANTAN: First, she stole their hearts. Then she stole their money.
The long arm of the law, however, finally caught up with the female Casanova who promised to marry six men she befriended through Facebook but then left them poorer and without a bride.
The 25-year-old serial heart-breaker has been detained by police following a report lodged by the family of her latest victim.
According to the victim’s sister, the woman collected RM300,000 from her family members, purportedly for an investment, after going through a Chinese wedding ceremony in May at their hometown in Sabah.
The woman had refused to legally register the marriage, claiming she would only do so on Aug 8 as it was an auspicious day.
“My brother met the woman via Facebook in March and she moved in with him.
“A month later, she told my brother she was pregnant but refused to go for check up,” she said yesterday.
“During the ceremony, none of the woman’s relatives was present. “She gave the excuse that an uncle had passed away from cancer and her family members could not attend,” she said, adding that the “bride” also declined to have the wedding dinner in her hometown in Kuala Lumpur, Sin Chew Daily reported.
“We became suspicious when her tummy remained the same even after several months. There were also no returns from our investment,” she added.
The family subsequently discovered – through a friend and media reports – that the woman had cheated several other men using the same tactics.
“When I confronted her, she told me she had used all the money and pleaded with us to give her time to work so that she can save up enough money to pay us back.
“I had no choice but to bring her to the police station in Pudu two days later.”
A police report was subsequently lodged at a police station in Kuala Lumpur.
