Bree Condon impersonator swindles millionaires on dating site

And worse, her impersonator was a guy! I just had to bring this story up today, because it's Friday, and this weekend, just like last Friday, it's the most emailed story on the WSJ.

Anyone think some Wall Street types have been getting action from that site or planning a weekend hook-up?

“Where you bring together wealthy individuals and those who seek their companionship, you have a lot of potential for fraud,” Stephan Smith, a spokesman for, told ABC News

Mr. Smith was speaking in response to the latest online millionaire swindle, where a man posing as model Bree Condon is alleged to have swindled tens of thousands of dollars (and maybe much more) from members of SeekingMillionaire.Com.

Apparently, the con man was able to disguise his voice as a woman and employed various personal photos and details of Bree’s life to persuade site members to send him cash.

One Austin, Texas, man sent the fraudster more than $10,000 after “Bree” said via email and phone conversations that she was having financial difficulties. Yes, it can be that easy.

Mr. Smith added that reports of blackmail and extortion on his site are “all too often.”
