A FRAUDSTER who was jailed for conning women on dating sites created another fake identity and started contacting them again as soon as he got out of jail.

Amir Tofangsazan, 33, had been convicted of scamming thousands of pounds from unsuspecting women he met through Tinder and Bumble.

But just days after being released from a Sussex Prison, the “romance fraudster” got back in contact with two women who had been witnesses in his trial.

Tofangsazan - who conned women by posing as a doctor or barrister -  is now back behind bars after admitting breaching a court order.

Detective Constable Lisa Hilliard, investigating, said: “Tofangsazan is a serial offender.

"He has continually breached the conditions of his release licence and the Criminal Behaviour Order that has been put in place in an effort to prevent this type of activity.

“He has proven repeatedly that he cannot be trusted to cease his callous criminal activities, something he will have sufficient time to ponder as he serves yet another sentence.

In May 2015, Tofangsazan was sentenced to seven years and nine months in prison for 15 counts of fraud.

Three years later, while serving the seven years and nine-month sentence, Tofangsazan was moved to HMP Ford open prison in West Sussex.

He obtained a mobile phone while on day release and used dating apps to con three more people into handing him money.

He was arrested and convicted at Lewes Crown Court where he was sentenced to three years more years imprisonment.

He was also given a ten-year criminal behaviour order.

Tofangsazan was conditionally released from prison on November 4 last year.

But just three days later, he began to contact two women who were witnesses in his previous trial – calling himself Jason.

Then, on December 10, 2019, he contacted a woman he had previously been in a relationship with, again via dating services, who knew him as Matt Fleming.

Two dating profiles were reported to police which used an alias name and the same images used in previous dating profiles.

He appeared at Wood Green Crown Court, London, on Tuesday where he pleaded guilty to all counts.

He was further remanded in custody to appear for sentencing at the same court on January 12 next year.

Det Con Hilliard added: “I applaud the victims in all of the cases relating to Tofangsazan for coming forward, their actions have ensured that he will not have the opportunity to lie his way into other women’s lives or bank accounts for some time to come.
