Iranian woman arrested for alleged 10-marriage con trick

A young Iranian woman accused of marrying – and divorcing – 10 men in less than two years in what officials call an elaborate con trick has been charged with fraud.

In a report from an Iranian daily, the 20 year-old woman married the men and immediately demanded her payment, never consummating the relationships. A divorced woman in Iran can wipe her husband’s name off her identity card if she can prove – using a doctor – she is still a virgin. The woman is accused of repeatedly taking such steps to conceal her past from her unsuspecting victims.
