BETHESDA, Md. - A con artist who has targeted women across the country has found his latest victim in Maryland. The woman you are about to meet thought she could trust the man she had been dating for two months. But then she learned the truth.
"He seemed very charming, has all of his stuff together,” she told FOX 5.
It seemed like love at first sight.
"We would go out to dinner or we would go to an NBA game and most people would just have their check card in their pocket, but this guy would have a wad of cash – I would guess $8,000 to $10,000 in cash," she said.
She thought their lavish dates and hours-long conversations were proof of his wealth.
"Wells Fargo bank statements claimed that he has $98 million in a high yield savings account,” the victim told us. “He has shown me deed of trust statements for very luxurious properties between L.A., Miami and even here. It's all fake.”
We asked her if any of this was a red flag to her.
“The fact that he was on his phone having business calls, it seemed real,” she said. “So yes, he is a professional con artist.”
