An Arizona man was handed a hefty prison sentence for scamming women through online dating sites.
Daylon G. Pierce, who also goes by Daylon Jung, was sentenced to nearly 16 years behind bars Friday after he pleaded guilty to two counts of fraudulent schemes and artifices, ABC 15 reported.
Pierce set up a series of profiles on various dating websites — including Match.com, PlentyOfFish.com, BBPeopleMeet.com and Tinder — and convinced the women he met to invest thousands in fraudulent schemes.
Pierce between 2013 and 2016 told the women he sparked romances with that he was licensed stockbroker. Instead of investing their funds, however, he’d use the money at casinos, nightclubs and strip clubs, according to officials.
