A married romance fraudster who posed as a single big-shot businessman to con a lonely woman out of GBP47,650has been jailed for three years.
Callous Qaiser Saeed, 40, hoodwinked his oblivious target, 39, out of her life savings after befriending her online.
The Casanova conman spent four months showering his victim with compliments and dripping false details about himself, including lies he was single and owned his own company.
Ironically his hustle saw him claim his bank account had been frozen due to him being a victim of fraud.
He then tricked his target into transferring large sums of money into his account that he claimed would pay his employees’ wages until his account was unfrozen.
In reality, Saeed was a married man with children who worked as a security guard.

Saeed, of Hayes, appeared at Isleworth Crown Court on Tuesday where he was sentenced to three years imprisonment for fraud by false representation.
He was previously found guilty of the offence by a jury at Barbican Nightingale Court on September 3, 2020.
Detectives first arrested him on April 10, 2014 on suspicion of fraud but after he was freed on bail he fled the country to Pakistan in an attempt to evade justice.

Five years later, on September 30, 2019, he flew into Heathrow on a student Visa.
To his surprise he was arrested at the airport on suspicion of fraud and was charged the following day with fraud by false representation.
Detective Sergeant James Harbour said: ‘Qaiser Saeed wilfully deceived the victim telling lie upon lie in order to deceive her into parting with her money.
‘Scammers, such as Saeed, are skilled liars who weave a complex web of falsehoods in order to manipulate vulnerable or trusting people, playing on their emotions before taking their money under false pretences.
‘Anyone can fall victim, regardless of age or gender. It is not unusual for victims to feel too embarrassed to tell police or a trusted person, or they may continue to believe that the suspect is telling them the truth as the reality of being scammed by someone they cared about is too difficult to contemplate.
‘I urge anyone who has fallen victim to this type of fraud to get in touch with police straight away.
There is nothing to be embarrassed about and you will be supported by officers who understand how this despicable crime works and will support you.’
