Rock Hill woman wires more than $56,000 to man she met online


A Rock Hill woman is out of nearly $60,000 after wiring money to a man she met online.

Rock Hill Police say they responded to the woman’s home and she told them she met a man on the website: PlentyofFish.com in May.

She said the two had never met in person, but they have exchanged phone calls, emails and texts. She said she voluntarily transferred more than $56,000, not to the man, but to two other people under no obligations.

He was supposed to fly into Charlotte Douglas Airport on Monday but when she went to pick him up, she said he never got off the plane.

She has since tried call him, but it goes straight to voicemail.
