I met a girl through a website which is mainly an arrangement.

I met up with her and she asked me to buy things for her in exchange in her meeting me again in the future.

I bought the things due to her promised.

Then she had been avoiding me and finally not met up as we agreed prior to me purchasing the products.

Is this considered fraud or conning? As she tricked me into purchasing the stuff with false promise.

Also, does the property that I purchase belongs to mine?

I assume if this is sex (false promise into sexual activity, or coerce someone into sexual activity) then it would be considered a sexual assault.

Thank you

No it is not fraud.

The property is hers if you freely gave it to her. Noting stopping you asking her to return the gift, however if she refuses not a lot you can do without an expensive court case which you may lose.

Count it as a learning experienced and don't be deceived by such a person again.

I only did it because there was a promised that was given from her that i will receive in exchange, but she failed to deliver that promise. In a way it is an arrangement for a service. She had received her benefits but refused to deliver what was agreed up on, so how can it not be a fraud or something else? (eg. paid for a coffee but the coffees shop refuses to deliver coffee)

Cmon Mike - wise up mate. Dont buy gifts in exchange for expected sex.

Was it some sort of Sugar Daddy arrangement? ( if so, you can maybe report her to the website, but I doubt you will get your gifts back - vet more suitable partners in future )

I was not expecting sex and the agreement wasn't anything sexual at all.

the bottom line is- there is an agreement that was made and that agreement was broken.

Using your excuse practically gives every shops right to take money and not provide their services.

Mike to help us understand, perhaps you need to give a few more details. What was the gift, what was promised in exchange for this gift, in what terms was this arrangement made?

No need for any personal information but was it a gift or was it payment? Was this clear to the other party if this was payment for services if this is the case?
