OTTAWA - Michelle Boyer was going to give up her life in Ottawa to move to Florida to be with the man she loved.

The one who sent her love poems, and told her how beautiful she was.

Coming out of a rocky 22-year relationship, it was just what she needed.

“He would say the right things, and make me feel like a woman,” said Boyer, who had met the man on an online dating site in Feb. 2010. Eventually, he started asking for money. “At first, it was only like $50 here and $50 there.”
