A Southeast Nebraska woman has reported being tricked out of more than $26,000 by someone she met on a dating website.
In July, the woman, in her 50's, began an exchange of messages and phone calls with a man claiming to be a world-traveling civil engineer.
The man eventually told her he needed to borrow $1,200 for taxes and then continued to ask for more money.
The woman says he told her she would be named a trustee of his mother's estate, from which he would get a big inheritance and pay the woman back.
The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says all she ever got from him were fraudulent documents.
She and the man never met in person.
