Irish - Sean WhelanAN Irish lothario who preys on vulnerable women on dating sites is up to his old tricks.

Sean Whelan, 60, has set up a dating profile on plentyoffish.com.

Last year, the Olive Press revealed that love rat Whelan was hiding out in Manilva after conning American Annie Predun out of €80,000 (Beware the love rat).

Escaping the Costa del Sol, the Olive Press can reveal that Whelan now splits his time between London and Northern Ireland.

Whelan, who introduces himself as a ‘widowed Irish businessman’ with a Masters degree, seduces lonely women before convincing them to invest in offshore funds.

Operating under the username ‘Tullyview’ – the same name he used on connectingsingles.com and match.com – he pockets the money and then disapears.

One concerned Irish woman who was contacted by Whelan, insisted he ‘needs to be stopped’.

“I am so glad that I checked him out and I want everyone to be weary of him,” she said.
