Police in Florida are currently searching for a sugar daddy who gave a fraudulent cheque to an 18-year-old woman.
The woman’s bank account was over drafted by around $1,600 after she received the fraudulent cheque from her sugar daddy, according to a St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office report.
The woman had explained to authorities that she met her sugar daddy, Paul Siek, on a sugar dating app and had been communicating with him for a while.
They formed an agreement that he would pay her to keep him company, the report said.
The man would often over pay her and was asked to place the difference on iTunes gift cards and send them to him, she said.
The woman said the man claimed to be 41 years old and lives in Houston, Texas.
She told deputies she received a $2,000.55 cheque from him and told her to keep $500 and send the rest back to him on iTunes gift cards.
The woman said she assumed everything was fine until her bank account was frozen due to being over drafted by around $1,600. She noticed Siek’s name was in the memo line and there were two other names on the cheque.
The cheque had the name Robert S. Smith, MD inc. at the top but was signed by another person.
Deputies said the signature was difficult to see but appeared to be signed by someone named Kris Starr.
Authorities have not been able to locate the people mentioned on the cheque.
