Neighbours Spoilers: Leo Falls Victim To A Cash Scam
Neighbours’ Leo Tanaka (Tim Kano) is left devastated after falling victim to a shocking cash con.
Views have always known that Leo’s hard, businessman exterior hides a much softer, naive man at heart. But this leaves him vulnerable next week, as trusting a newcomer turns out to be a huge mistake.
As Leo spends time at the Back Lane Bar with Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards), they both find themselves attracted to the same women. Leo comes out on top when it turns out that the mysterious woman, who introduces herself as Carmen, is more interested in him.

Winning the attention of an attractive young woman leaves Leo on a high, but it will soon become clear to viewers that she is using him when she messages a mysterious contact, updating them on her progress.
After Leo invites Carmen back to his place for the night, they get to know each other better. She moves quickly, convincing Leo to let her take a look over the bar’s account books for him. When she creates a clever way for Leo to save money he is impressed, leading him to allow her further access to his accounts.
Later that day, Leo is confused when Carmen disappears without saying a word. But when he looks at his laptop he finds out why – Carmen has stolen all of his money.
