According to the Canadian police, they were surprised by how dedicated the alleged scammers were to defrauding their victims as they showed so much patience and made their victims fall in love with them. According to the Saskatchewan RCMP anyone who knew the location of the alleged scammers should contact RCMP at (306) 310-7267. Police said the five men were living in Regina during the time. Austin Newton was arrested in January, but the other four suspects could be anywhere in Canada, police say.

The warrants were issued following an 18 months investigation by Federal RCMP officers that involved a series of surveillance operations, numerous interviews, and the investigation of over 50 Canadian bank accounts. “Police said the five individuals have ties to what is believed to be a larger international criminal organization involved in long-term running of online romance scams”, said the Saskatchewan RCMP in a press release.
