Beware the runaway bride who has conned more than 10 grooms!December 11th, 2008 - 6:30 pm ICT by ANI
Kuala Lumpur, December 11 (ANI): A bride has run-off with jewellery and cash after conning more than 10 grooms she had promised to marry.
The 30-year-old woman, said to have a striking resemblance to Taiwanese supermodel Lin Chiling, had promised to tie the knot with more than 10 men but had vanished into thin air a little before the weddings.
It was revealed that the woman, who had met the grooms families but not introduced hers to the men, had asked for jewellery and a dowry between a few thousand ringgit to RM10,000 from each of her would-be husbands.
She lived in an apartment in Batu Ferringhi and was such a smooth operator that none of us realised she was dating other men as well, the Star Online quoted a victim as saying.
It was only after she went missing that all the other grooms found out about one another when we turned up outside her apartment to look for her, he added.
Another groom further revealed that it was only after her neighbour had told the businessman that many other men had been visiting the woman with flowers and gifts that he realised he had been duped. (ANI)
