According to TV Asahi, the woman is a resident of Shiga Prefecture. She met the fake astronaut on Instagram in June. The report also stated that his profile contained images of space to create the false impression that he was employed by the space station.

According to the report, the two started messaging each other on Instagram before moving their communications to Japan’s messaging service Line.

The con man soon confessed his love to her and even asked her to marry him.

TV Asahi reported that the man continued to text the woman to tell her that he loved her and that he wanted to start a new life with her in Japan.

In order to return to Earth and marry her, the con man claimed that he needed money. According to TV Asahi, he claimed that there is a landing charge attached to using the missile that will take him to Japan!

Well, the woman reportedly fell for it and started sending him money. And she reportedly sent her about 4.4 million yen which in Indian rupees amounts to INR 24.8 lakhs!

It wasn’t until the man started asking for more money that the woman started to wonder. The Japanese authorities are investigating this case and treating it as an international romance scam, the report said.
