I was conned by my husband, 10 months after we married I found out he was actually a WOMAN | The Sun

A WOMAN is claiming to have fallen victim to a marriage con after discovering 10 months into her relationship she found out that her husband was a woman in disguise.

The victim, who has been identified by her initials NA, is claiming to be conned out of £16,537, and has decided to share her story on social media after the case made headlines.

It comes after the accused, who is referred to by their initials AA, appeared before the Jambi District Court in Indonesia on Tuesday (June 14).

She claimed that she matched with the scammer on a dating app in May 2021 and AA allegedly said they were a man who was a US-trained surgeon. 

They also also claimed to be a coal businessman that recently converted to Islam and was looking for a wife.

Three months later the pair were wed in a nikah siri arrangement, which is recognised by religion but not by the state.

Nikah siri, which literally means “secret wedding”, is used in Indonesia for unregistered marriages. 

Siri derives from the Arabic term meaning “clandestine”, and while such weddings are often conducted in secrecy, they are acknowledged under Islam.

They were unable to have a state-sanctioned wedding as the groom was unable to present the civil documents required.

The newlyweds lived in the victim's parents’ house for several months.

However during this time, her parents became suspicious that AA kept asking for money and couldn’t provide any proof of his impressive credentials.

However, the swindler's family members and friends always backed his career claims, according to Coconuts.

The family claimed that they were scammed out of £16k

And so to avoid further questioning from the family, the con artist took their bride away from her family to Lahat, South Sumatra.

While there she was then confined to the house for several months and prohibited from interacting with anyone else.

Her 'husband' also controlled their finances.

In April NA’s concerned mother contacted Jambi Police who tracked down the pair in Lahat.

During police interrogation, AA was revealed to be a woman whose real name bears the initials EY.

During the 10 months of their marriage, the family claimed that they were scammed out of IDR 300 million, the equivalent of £16,537.

After being quizzed on social media about their sex life, the victim said her 'husband' would always turn off the lights and blindfold her before sex.

To the police, the con artist said that she used her hands to pleasure her wife, but the victim said she was certain that EY used penetrative sexual devices during their lovemaking.

NA also claimed that EY attempted to murder her by telling her to jump into a river despite knowing that she can’t swim.

The victim's parents reported EY to the authorities for educational record fraud, which may be the first of many charges against her and for which she may face up to 10 years in prison.

The trial for that lawsuit is ongoing at the Jambi District Court.
