A 65-year-old woman in Japan was scammed by a man claiming to be a Russian Astronaut who needed money for a "ticket back to earth."
The man blamed the poor cell service in space for his lack of communication at times. Things between them quickly escalated when the "astronaut" professed his love to her, claiming that he would want to marry her once back on Earth. She ended up giving the man $30,000 and only called the cops once she got sick of his constant money demands.
