A woman in Northern Ireland has been scammed out of more than £300,000 by a man she thought she was in an online relationship with.

They met on Facebook, and within months he began asking her to send money.

The PSNI says her case is one of the biggest they’ve dealt with.

It fears many more victims never even come forward because of embarrassment.
