The serial dater, whose actual birthday is November 13, swindled the 35 women of $929.44 (R13 000) worth of birthday presents, cash and clothes. He targeted single women only and told them that he wanted to settle down as soon as possible.

Takashi Miyagawa, who is from Kansai region, southern area of Japan, is said to have met the women while working with a marketing company where he sold hydrogen water showerheads and other products.

After realising he was not the prince charming, they thought he was, the disgruntled women reported him to the police so as to teach him a lesson. The matter is still under police investigation.
