    Default Catfished man flies 13 000km to Cape Town to be with his 'true love'

    Cape Town - When an American citizen met a Cape Town woman on Craigslist, an international classified website, he thought he had found love, and travelled 13 000kms across the Atlantic Ocean to meet her.

    Little did Michael Morgan, 67, of North Carolina realise he was a victim of catfishing and that his true love did not exist.

    Michael arrived at Cape Town International Airport last Tuesday to meet Caryl Jones, a 35-year-old nurse working at Groote Schuur Hospital and who claimed she had recently inherited $12 million (about R140 million) from her diamond baron dad.

    But after waiting at the airport for more than an hour and then going to Caryl’s Vredehoek home and then her workplace, Michael realised he had been duped.

    Now I ain't saying he's a gold diamond digger...

    Lol, to me it sounds more like Michael saw the true love in the 'inheritance' I mean,

    Michael says he was very disappointed when he realised he’d been floused: “I spent $900 for my flight here and $800 for the flight home, I also spent $300 for taxi services and hotel fees.
    desperate to draw on that inheritance. I may be wrong here, but hey...
    Trolling is an Art. A Jest of Faith.

    ONLY, if they can prove its legit. This proof could be in the form of a payment you must make to the lawyers to release the funds to you. Only then do you book the plane ticket.

    Why even embarrass yourself further by telling this story?

    They had hoped he would pay for her to help with the passport or something.
