Christine Flatley

A Queensland man is accused of running an online dating scam to steal from unsuspecting women looking for love.

Police say he used the name "David" on several websites and established numerous relationships with women to defraud them of money and property.

The 47-year-old will appear in the Gympie Magistrates Court next month on a string of theft and fraud offences, which also relate to allegations he ran a black market business with stolen farming equipment.
