NY man pleads guilty to stealing nearly $200K from women he met through online dating services
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – A man who lied about being rich and important has pleaded guilty to stealing nearly $200,000 from women he met through online dating services.
Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore says Solomon Jesus Nasser of Ardsley pleaded guilty Thursday to third-degree grand larceny.
DiFiore says Nasser "trolled Internet dating sites" for nearly three years looking for victims.
Among other things, he claimed he'd been a high-level Department of Defense official, an adviser to President George W. Bush, a Navy admiral and a multimillionaire who owned a jet.
He had said he had cash flow problems due to legal issues and asked for loans to cover living expenses.
Nasser faces up to seven years in prison when he's sentenced Oct. 27. He's also being ordered to pay restitution.
