A Chinese man has been arrested for having 15 mistresses and taking money from all of them. Tian Fusheng, who is married and has a 18-year-old daughter, allegedly dated more than a dozen of women - including two sharing the same dorm - and swindled 350,000 Yuan (£35,500) out of them during the last four years.
The unemployed man, 40, stood trial in Beijing for fraud last week, reported People's Daily Online.
Mr Tian met his mistresses, who are all university students, through online chatting platform QQ.
He would then invite the young women to his home, have sex with them and promise to marry them.
Three of the 15 women are reported to have got pregnant by him.
He identified himself as a 28-year-old CEO of a luxury fashion company, who held two Master's degrees from top universities in China.But in reality, Tian is unemployed, unhappily married and has a 18-year-old daughter, according to his father.
He allegedly got money from the women by saying his business had cash flow problems, and that his mother was terminally ill.
Things began to unravel for Mr Tian when two of his girlfriends turned up at his home in June last year at the same time while he was out.
When they got chatting they were shocked to realise they shared the same boyfriend.
Using the website QQ, the two young women were then able to find other women who had also been dating the man.
Two of the victims share the same dorm in their university, but they didn't know they were dating the same guy who was married.
The furious women decided to go to the police to have the love rat arrested for fraud.
When Mr Tian was finally brought before a court in Beijing last Wednesday, he retracted his original confession and told the court it had been obtained under duress.
He denied committing fraud and said he had told the women the truth when they met.
He added that he had already repaid most of the money he had taken from them.
The case is still in progress, but prosecutors said that due to the large amount of money involved Mr Tian should be found guilty for fraud.
