(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after he used a college student and then vanished.
The man met the college student through social media and the two decided to meet in person.
25-year-old Cheng Chih-wen, reportedly used the Chinese social media application “WeChat,” to connect with the unsuspecting college student in the Taiwanese city of Taichung.
Chih-wen allegedly told the 21-year-old woman that he was a construction worker and asked her to lend him about $120. He said that he needed the money to pay his crew.
The naive student who wanted to help, handed over the money. The couple then went to a motel where they spent a steamy night together.
The next day, Chih-wen tried his luck again and asked the woman for an additional $1,200 – promising to pay her back when he received money from his family.
This time however, the woman asked for collateral before handing over the money. Chih-wen gave the woman his passport as collateral.
Well, that certainly came in handy when Chih-wen disappeared without a trace and the woman realized that she was being played.
The victim called police and handed over the man’s passport. The dumb criminal has been arrested and charged with deception.
