A convicted fraudster allegedly changed his name multiple times in a bid to date more than 250 woman – and conned then out of thousands of pounds.
Jon Mulder – his real name – used several aliases to date around 100 woman.
He is also accused of contacting more than 150 others to try and date them so that he could steal money.

According to CTV News in Toronto, Canada, he also used the names Johnny Myers, John Meyers, John Boulder and Jon Moudlers, and he recently appeared in court after being charged with unlawful confinement, mischief and voyeurism.
But it wasn't until he stood in the dock, and his name was read out, that many of those women he scammed had heard his true name.
Victim Naomi Wolf said: “When he said, ‘Jon Mulder’ in court, it was a confirmation – you’re not ‘Myers,’ you’re Mulder.”
Ms Wolf says she met the man on Facebook Marketplace, buying a motorbike for around £8k.
She described him as ”engaging and charismatic”, and the pair dated for around eight months.
That is until a friend sent her a link to a Facebook group with a name that speaks for itself.
It was called “Are we dating the same man – Toronto."
And there it was, evidence that the woman as dating the same man as around 100 others – and that the bike she bought actually belonged to another woman in the group.

Annge Madill met Mulder on a dating app, but never physically met in person.
However, he sold her bike on her behalf – but never saw the money.
She said: “He started to take advantage of me from the first initial message, though I didn’t realize it then.
“He seemed to be a real gentleman, serenading you with a country love song, wanting to be the first person you spoke with in the morning, and made you feel really special.
“You just fell for it. His personality was larger than life.
