A group of women are warning others to do background checks on partners met through dating apps after loans worth thousands of pounds were taken out in their names by the same conman.


Peter Gray, 35, who met the women on Tinder, was jailed after defrauding four women out of about £80,000.


One victim said Gray, from West Yorkshire, “totally ruined my life” and left her with significant trust issues.


Tinder said it had “implemented various ways to warn users of potential scams”.


Gray, of Mirfield, was sentenced to 56 months in prison in February and given restraining orders in relation to the victims.
