Follow our live coverage for the latest news on the coronavirus pandemic. Police fear a West Australian woman found dead in South Africa may be the victim of foul play, after she travelled to the country to see a man she met on an online dating service. The body of year-old Jette Jacobs, from Wagin, south of Perth, was found in a rented villa in Johannesburg on February 9. Mr Omokoh, from Nigeria, had made a proposal of marriage to Ms Jacobs before her trip. Police say Mr Omokoh told them he discovered the body and it is too early to say whether she was murdered. WA’s Fraud Squad say Ms Jacobs’ children tried to talk her out of making the trip and warned her it would be a scam. Her son, who wants to be identified only as Mr Jacobs, believes his mother was murdered. Her son says the family is devastated as his mother was a strong woman and they believe she was taken in. A letter was sent to Ms Jacobs warning she might be a victim of fraud but it arrived shortly after she had left Australia.

Online dating sites are not doing enough to protect women from being targeted by stalkers and men convicted of domestic violence, according to a new anti-stalking charity. Paladin , which was set up two months ago to offer counselling to stalking victims, says it has received requests for urgent help from women after they met men online who subsequently became abusive towards them. The claim comes as the online dating industry launches a new code and kitemarking system designed to bolster confidence among clients.
It follows a series of serious data breaches, when personal information was stolen by hackers, causing fears that personal information could find its way into the hands of stalkers. The concerns are one of the few black clouds hanging over what is a booming industry. Paladin, launched on 11 July, said it had received a number of referrals from women who had met men online. The charity said at least three of the referrals involved threats and actual violence. In each case the men all had previous histories of violence against women.
Paladin said it was “extraordinary” that a lack of regulation meant abusive men could keep joining dating sites. It said anyone who was found to be involved in stalking or violence should be barred from all dating agencies and the matter referred to the police. It also said it was worried about the vulnerability of online dating sites being hacked. This is frightening. If such information fell into the hands of predatory sex offenders or stalkers, the consequences would be horrific.
