A Central Florida man, who asked not to be identified, fell victim to a random text from a beautiful woman that led to a romance-investment scheme that cost him $50,000 wired to two international banks.

The victim told News 6 that a woman who called herself “Lilli” traded photographs with him and started a relationship that went from friendship to romance to an opportunity to make $5,000 dollars a day on a $50,000 investment in Ethereum, a decentralized blockchain platform that establishes a peer-to-peer network.
