A cab driver who posed as a doctor on a dating website to entice women then secretly filmed himself having sex with them has been jailed for eight and a half years.

Farhan Mirza, 38, from Abertillery, South Wales, used the videos to blackmail his victims, who were all Muslim women.

The women were targeted because of the shame they would suffer if the films were made exposed.

He was convicted on charges of sexual assault, blackmail, voyeurism, theft and fraud against three victims at Cardiff Crown Court.

Judge Tom Crowther described his actions as “pure misogyny”.

Mirza met the women, who were looking for long term relationships, using a false profile on a popular Asian dating website

To manipulate them into having sexual intercourse, he would hang surgical scrubs in his wardrobe and also carry a stethoscope.

In reality, he worked as a cab driver, IT worker, and lived with his mother.

He also lied to one woman that he was an IT manager and his family were all in successful jobs, such as that his father was a company director in Pakistan and his sister was a doctor.

A victim went to the police after she discovered £70,000 in cash at his house and indecent images of herself and other women.

“It is the prosecution’s case that Mr Mirza is a particular kind of sexual predator and he chooses his victims carefully,” said prosecutor Timothy Evans to the court, the Guardian reported.

“Because of their religious and ethnic backgrounds, he targeted them because of the terror, embarrassment and humiliation that each of these ladies would have felt in their minds by what this defendant did to them.”
