Canmore RCMP are investigating reports of a man preying on local women on an online dating website.
According to RCMP, the suspect, who is believed to reside outside of Canada, has initiated relationships with at least two Canmore women. After gaining the trust of his victims, the man asks for large sums of money under the guise that the funds will be returned.
The two victims have each sent the conman more than $300,000.
RCMP will not confirm which dating website the suspect has utilized but state it is a popular site.
RCMP are asking anyone with information about the dating website fraud to contact the Canmore detachment at 403-678-5516.
