The woman in question has far more money than sense it seems.

So some men are essentially getting our own back and if this law were universally applied essentially all women above the age of thirty would be in prison.

If the sum is correct, it would be indeed about USD 23 million.

That's plainly crazy.

Unfortunately it never happened to me, no woman ever gave me any money.... just zero.

I also doubt that up to 90 percent of all cases the cheated person is female. It is more likely, that men are cheated frequently, but of course for less smaller amounts and they never report that as a scam.

I agree. You also have to take into consideration that the fraudster in hiding who cheats money out of women online could actually be a female pretending to be a man.
