Earlier this week, the second episode of My Online Nightmare aired, which focused on the fraudsters who embark on fully-fledged relationships with their victims.The episode looked at the story of Liz Todd, who met a man called Christopher Heayns (who she believed to be Christopher Smith) on dating site Plenty Of Fish.You know you’re in the right spot when you see the line of old school arcade machines for your perusing. You’ll notice an 80s movie playing one these 3 small TVs in the corner.And it’s a VHS that’s playing (my younger audience may need to google what a VHS is.)

Don’t get me wrong, being able to have a good conversation with someone is really important, but does it always have to be deep and thought provoking?Channel 4 also explained how single parent Mischele Lewis was defrauded out of £1,550 by her fiance “Liam”, who she met online.Actually called William Allen Jordan, Mischele’s online date told her and a number of other single mothers, that he was working in the Middle East as a British secret agent.During their relationship, Heayns asked Todd to rent a lavish house under his name and Todd was also found to have paid his bills and housekeeping staff’s wages, while Heayns spent her money using five credit cards he took out in her name on prostitutes, strippers, hotels and fancy trips to London.The total amount conned from Todd was £168,000, with the criminal even defrauding Todd’s 60-year-old mother, stealing £82,000 of her savings.
