A Kansas Wesleyan University student reported being scammed out of more than $3,300 by a person he met through a dating website, a police department spokesman said.

Capt. Paul Forrester said the 19-year-old student came into contact with a person who had offered to pay $400 a month for telephone companionship through seekingarrangement.com.

However, instead of paying the student, the man convinced the student to send a total of $3,384 in Walmart Moneygrams over a week and a half, Forrester said.
