beware the indian gigolo scam man

Did you date this man? The Philadelphia Inquirer has a story about Jay D. Singh, "an Indian gigolo" who is now in custody after deceiving several women in order to steal from them: Police: Indian gigolo romanced his way to larceny.

Singh apparently romanced his way into the bank accounts of at least three Philadelphia area women, ages 26 to 28, taking them for about $40,000. Cruise an Indian singles website lately? You might have encountered this guy:
Singh, 32, met the women on websites catering to Indian singles and used their credit cards and stole their identities to fund a jet-setting lifestyle that took him on trips to Canada, London, Morocco and India, police say.

Detectives arrested Singh on Monday night when he showed up to meet one of his alleged victims for a drink at the Dorchester on Rittenhouse Square.

The woman was working with the detectives.
Singh, who is also known as Jaitass Dhanoa Singh, Jay Dhanoa Singh, and Dhanoa Singh, is now charged with a number of offenses, including theft, forgery, identity theft, unlawful use of computer and defrauding creditors.

Were you swindled by Jay D. Singh? Investigators are still piecing his story together, but they suspect there are more victims. The investigation might even go international. Possible victims or anyone who has information are asked to call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.
