Liew said that demographic was targeted for a reason.
"Because the accused believed that the complainants would be less (rather) than more willing to come forward once they realized they'd been defrauded", she said.
Dozens of gay men in search of romance were duped out of tens of thousands of dollars in a dating scam that targeted victims throughout western Canada, police say.
Two men from Calgary, aged 36 and 42, preyed on victims they met through online gay dating sites.
One victim from Vancouver was an elderly man who was allegedly drugged with the date rape drug GHB.
She called those who complained "brave" and said, "I think most of them are fairly upset, because it's the trust issue the two accused have violated." She called it "horrible" that the victims were duped after letting an accused into their homes and their beds.Liew said charges are pending in another six to eight Vancouver cases.Police would not name any of the sites, but called them legitimate businesses. Chris Liew of the Edmonton police cyber-crimes unit said officers The accused and their victims would connect online and set up a meeting at a public place, such as a movie theatre or coffee shop.The accused would get the target to pay for tickets or a drink.
In most cases, the theft happened on the first date.
As soon as the accused stole the card, they moved onto the next target, police said.
