Croydon con artist Neelam Desai re-bailed over dating website scams

A CONWOMAN suspected of committing a series of dating website scams in which men were tricked out of tens of thousands of pounds has been re-bailed until early 2015.

Neelam Desai, 34, was arrested in April on suspicion of ten counts of fraud by false representation following an investigation by the Advertiser.

A month later she was sentenced to 30 months for orchestrating separate frauds relating to her discount travel business.

Desai, of Beulah Grove, Selhurst, is currently in Bronzefield Prison, in Surrey, and this week answered bail in relation to the dating website scams.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed today (Friday) that she has been re-bailed until a date in mid-February next year.

Last month a confiscation hearing, to discern whether she has any assets which can be used to repay her travel business victims, was delayed until October.
