A Canberra dating app fraudster had pleaded guilty to conning 10 men out of more than $300,000.
Crystal-Lee Lancaster, 26, pleaded guilty in the ACT Magistrates Court on Friday to 10 counts of obtaining property by deception.
The court heard the charges cover 10 victims over a seven year period, with one man tricked out of almost $135,000 between 2011 and 2017.
Lancaster had originally been charged with more than 30 counts of fraud, however, a number were withdrawn on Friday in order to simplify the indictment.
Magistrate Peter Morrison order a pre-sentence report and committed the matter to the ACT Supreme Court for sentence.
The defence indicated it may seek a mental health report to aid proceedings.
Lancaster remains in custody.
The court has previously heard Lancaster had used pictures she'd stolen from a UK woman’s Instagram profile and to lure one man to a Plenty of Fish dating profile.
The practice of luring a victim into a relationship via a fictional online persona is known as catfishing.
The former childcare worker told the man she was a sports doctor who had worked for the Australian cricket team, the Queensland State of Origin team and the Sydney Rabbitohs rugby league team.
She also claimed she had a son to cricketer Michael Clarke, she suffered from diabetes and when she was 14 she had liver cancer.
The Lyneham woman then asked to borrow money from the man, saying she was in hospitalised with diabetes, unable to work, and needed to pay for things like chemotherapy, insulin, and her son's school fees.
The victim deposited more than $60,000 into her account over a year.
The man later confronted the woman and she admitted the deception, repaying some of the money.
The matter will return to court next month.
ACT Policing urges anyone who suspects they may be a victim of this type of fraud to report it by calling 131 444.
