A local woman was recently sent to the procuratorate for swindling her 63-year-old "boyfriend" out of 500,000 yuan ($78,878) over the course of six years, Knews reported Thursday.

The 40-year-old divorcee woman, surnamed Gong, met Luo, a divorcee senior, through a matchmaking agent in Jing'an district in 2010.

Gong lied to Luo that she had leukemia and was badly in need of money. To support his new girlfriend, Luo remitted monthly deposits into Gong's account over six consecutive years until Luo's adult son finally became suspicious.

Luo inquired at the hospital if Gong had been treated for cancer; after learning she had not, he called the police. Luo signed a reconciliation document after Gong returned 420,000 yuan.
