Local police have arrested a Shandong Province woman accused of assuming a fake name and swindling more than 100,000 yuan ($16,031) from a local man who wanted to marry her, Jinshan police said Wednesday.

The suspect, surnamed Guo, met her fiancé, surnamed Zhang, using a fake name on a matchmaking website in November 2011, according to a press release from the Jinshan District Public Security Bureau.

After building up their relationship, Guo started asking Zhang for money. She told him she had a problem at her job and needed 19,000 yuan, which Zhang gave her.

During their relationship, she asked Zhang to buy her an 11,000-yuan necklace and an iPhone worth more than 5,000 yuan, according to police.

After a few months, Guo agreed to marry Zhang. She took him to meet her parents so that he could get their permission and asked him to bring 80,000 yuan to give them as a gift.

Zhang complied. However, before the couple could get married, Guo disappeared.

Zhang called the police, who tracked down Guo through her parents.

The case remains under investigation.

Jinshan police warned residents to be wary of the potential for fraud when using matchmaking websites.
