INTERNATIONAL: 71-y-o Florida retiree loses home and $185,000 in online romance scam

56499028290000d7004dd139HUFFINGTON POST – She was looking for love, but ended up losing her home and entire life savings.

Florida senior Catherine Short was swindled out of an eye-watering $185,000 after falling prey to an online dating scam.

The 71-year-old was conned out of the hefty chunk of cash after signing up to the ChristianMingle.com dating site, reports Fox13.

Short reportedly found a match and felt like they’d hit it off, with her new beau saying he’d eventually want to get married. He also promised to buy her a gold ring with her name spelled out in diamonds.

But after several months of communication, her online lover — who she never actually met — started demanding that she buy him expensive gadgets.
