Millionaire DuPont Heir Is Gold-Dug By Web Girls
This is exactly what happened to Stephen Dent, heir to the DuPont fortune. According to the New York Post, Dent willingly spent more than $200,000 on women he met on SeekingArrangement.com, but that didn't stop 22-year-old Queens, NY resient Roy Sipel from extorting an additional $40,000 from Dent back in March 2008, after finding out that the millionaire had sex with his girlfriend. Sipel was busted on larceny charges and is spending 16 months in jail. This apparently wasn't enough to scare Dent, who lives in Greenwich, CT, away from the site, because he went back and ended up getting extorted again, this time by an Ohio couple for $100,000, who were busted this March.
Although this all played out thanks to a social-networking site, the classic gold-digger extortion play is the oldest trick in the book. Next time, maybe Dent will hit Craigslist for his trysts -- we've heard that people are much more responsible on that site. [From: New York Post , via Gawker]
