My online lover spent my £28,000 inheritance and then dumped me

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE been totally ripped-off by my girlfriend to the tune of £28,000, which was my inheritance.

I’m a man of 59 and my marriage ended in divorce five years ago.

I was very ill with a failing kidney and I heard my wife slagging me off to her mate, saying I was faking my illness.

We argued and that was the last straw for me. We divorced.

During the pandemic, I started to talk to somebody online. She’s 43 and she seemed really nice but she didn’t feel the same way about me, until my mother died very suddenly of a heart attack and then this woman was all over me.

She knew I’d benefit financially after Mum died and that was all she wanted.

First of all, she asked for a designer handbag, which I bought her.
Then she persuaded me to buy her a second-hand car.

I’ve just had the whole of her house decorated which saw off the rest of my money. Now she’s dumped me.

DEIDRE SAYS: This woman preyed on you when you were at your most vulnerable. I’m so sorry.

Unless you had anything in writing about a loan to this woman for the car, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to win anything back – unless the car’s logbook is in your name, in which case you will need legal help.
