Pictured: The picture of an unnamed American soldier used by dating fraudster Tosin Femi Olasemo on his fake match.com profile.<br />
Re: A man who claimed to be an American solider serving in Afghanistan to defraud two women of more than £250,000 has been ordered to pay back the proceeds of his crime.<br />
Tosin Femi Olasemo was living in Adamsdown, Cardiff, when he conducted online dating fraud.<br />
The 38-year-old used a photograph of a man wearing full military uniform as his profile picture on the website match.com and claimed he needed the money to arrange leave from the army.<br />
Olasemo pleaded guilty to fraud and was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison at Cardiff Crown Court in July 2015.<br />
Following his conviction, a Proceeds of Crime Act investigation took place which revealed that Olasemo had links to Nigerian bank accounts containing more than £150,000 and land purchased in Nigeria for around £47,000. In addition, he was found in possession of more than £1,100 when he was arrested.<br />
 A confiscation hearing took place at Cardiff Crown Court last week which found that Olasemo had a benefit from his crime totalling £253,347. The court ordered that £200,707 is repaid to his two victims who reside in Denmark. He also has three months to arrange the sale of the land in Nigeria to repay the remaining money. If he fails to satisfy the confiscation order then he will have to serve a further two and a half years in prison in default. At the conclusion of his sentence Olasemo will also be deported from the UK.
