OKLAHOMA CITY -- A scam artist is using a legitimate dating chat line to try to con people into giving him cold, hard cash.
The con artist is using the Mega Mates chat line, which is a legitimate free dating service.
But the scam artist is using the phone chat line to con people into thinking he's a police officer, and that he's caught them doing something wrong.
In the reports, victims were called by a female who said she was 28-years-old.
News 9 spoke with a caller named James who refused to fall victim to the con artist's trap.
