A man living in England who posed as a doctor on a matchmaking site shaadi.com
has been ordered to pay nearly 3,500 pounds to women who he blackmailed with intimate footage.
Farhan Mirza, 38, was convicted and arrested in November for eight years by a court in England. The BBC reports
that he has to "pay back £3,425 and he has 28 days to do so or faces an additional three months in jail."
Farhan Mirza was found guilty of fraud, blackmail and voyeurism
Mr Mirza, who was in fact a taxi driver, allegedly wooed Muslim women who he felt were wealthy. His victims included, according to local reports, a doctor, a former news journalist and a psychology graduate.
He was described in court as "a sexual and financial predator".
He was found guilty of fraud, blackmail and voyeurism and earned over 8,000 pounds through extortion, half of which he has now been ordered to repay.
