Bogdan Stancu, who has worked at Tate’s campus in Bucharest, Romania for two years, told the women around Tate: they thought they would marry him.

a press release An article published by DIICOT following Tate’s arrest cited the “dear boy” method, which Umar Zeb, a senior associate at law firm JD Spicer Zeb Solicitors, told Insider, is common in human trafficking cases.
Zeb works by “trapping vulnerable victims” and “deceiving them into believing they’re in a loving relationship.”
“Once victims essentially fall in love, they are forced into various exploitative measures for the sex industry, including human trafficking,” he said.
Tate clearly described how he hires women for his job, in terms that are very similar to the man-in-love method.
For example, on his now-deleted website, he said that he would make women fall in love with him so that he would “do everything I say and then hook him up to the webcam so we can get rich together.”
Zeb said social media has played a huge role in facilitating smugglers over the past few years. When he spoke to Insider earlier for an article in early January.
“Because of access, victims are not only more widely available, but the methods of coercion have changed,” he said.
“What used to be a scam that was practiced over a long period of time has now become a much faster form of decoy because victims are threatened through blackmail, such as exposure to pornographic images and violence.”
Stancu told the BBC she would “never doubt Andrew” and described the women who came forward with the allegations as “young and stupid”.
