A woman who met the man of her dreams on the Internet and then married him, has been awarded $264,000 (#165,000) by a judge, after finding out he was a she.
Margaret Hunter, a 24-year-old administrative assistant from the US, will get $250,000 in damages and $14,000 to cover her expenses during the relationship.
Hunter met Holly Anne Groves in the autumn of 1995 on a usenet group.
Groves said she was a jet-set businessman dying of AIDS and covered her chest with bandages, saying she had broken her ribs in a car accident.
Hunter eventually found Groves' birth certificate and realised her husband was in fact a woman.
After the judge's decision Hunter said she hopes the fine will "send a real strong message" to Groves and others who misuse the Internet.
