The 2011 Gospel Music Awards Nominee and UK based Nigerian,
Oluwamayola Ajayi, 31, of Sherman Gardens, Chadwell Heath, used dating website Match.com to ensnare four women using different names and identities.
He has been jailed for six-and-a-half years for using the dating site to steal more than £120,000 from lonely women by posing as a pilot, oil executive and grieving widower.
On several occasions, he sent email threats, allegedly from a captor, claiming he had been kidnapped and would be killed if a ransom was not paid. He blew all the money on a luxury lifestyle, including a holiday to South Africa.
