Con man?

Met someone in a store and started texting. he claims to manage some businesses and hold a one billion U.S. dollar bond. Already caught him lying saying he owns a company that owns his $750K house. Public records show it is owned by an individual. When called on that he claims it is a trusted friend that wanted a tax benefit. He said he’s lived there 15 yrs but there’s been 4-5 owners and I said and all were trusted friends? That one he didn’t respond too. He was offering boat storage to me on the property which caused me to look up the owner but I was curious about a billion dollar bond? Do individuals get those?

Believe him

Give him your dick or ass but not your money.

Is his name Jose Diaz, the sociopathic guy who claims to be a doctor ?

by Anonymousreply 304/14/2019

Not Diaz...but he claimed to be an expert in geo-thermal and I texted ‘you can’t even spell geothermal.” He responded when he was a university instructor/researcher it was hyphenated.

by Anonymousreply 404/14/2019

There are no billion dollar bonds. I think the largest is like $5 million.

I guess he could mean a surety bond--this is insurance--but that would mean he's saying like a 10million premium on it, which seems hardly likely if he lives in a 750k house.

He sounds insane, actually.

Thanks r5 that’s what I thought and I hope he’s not dangerous.

by Anonymousreply 604/14/2019

... But I have this great opportunity of business for you!

by Anonymousreply 704/14/2019

I just looked he said “I am bonded for $1B

Initial texts about finances? What happened to the good old days when we just swapped dick pics?

by Anonymousreply 1004/14/2019

He sounds highly insane and frankly scary.

by Anonymousreply 1104/14/2019

Don't "hope he's not dangerous."

Get the hell away from him. There are plenty of guys out there.

by Anonymousreply 1204/14/2019

Yeah, but that's like a a premium of at least 1% on a billion dollars.

It's bullshit.

by Anonymousreply 1304/14/2019

I asked him to stop texting me and he wouldn’t ..kept trying to spin the lies except the one where there were many property owners over 15 yrs. I had to block him.

by Anonymousreply 1404/14/2019

I guess that's the smart think to do, but I really wanted to know more about this story

by Anonymousreply 1504/14/2019

He was trying to steal your boat

by Anonymousreply 1604/14/2019

where is he from? Do not give him any of your info.

by Anonymousreply 1704/14/2019

Take picture of him, in case you need to show police later.

by Anonymousreply 1804/14/2019

I actually emailed a P.I. He said he was from Indiana originally. he talked of two prior relationships who are both dead! One got rear ended in their BMW X5 and he said it was because of the type of tires that don’t skid? He said he wanted the tires changed but the ex wouldn’t. i have a work address of his too where I saw him once locking up and he introduced me to a coworker. the weird part is that the legal home owner shows as a 69 yr old woman formerly of CA. he said his trusted friend wanted a tax benefit and she is a executive V.P. At Chase bank. Well I found a woman 58 with the same name in Columbus OH (where he used to live too) who is a VP at chase there. he said he keeps friends boats on his property (back yard) and I would have night vision security camera access 24/7. He wanted $20 a month. My dad is a former lawyer who said “possession is 9/10ths of the law.

by Anonymousreply 1904/14/2019

^the ex got rear ended in the b’mer 3 times and died from prescriptions they didn’t cross check like Heath Ledger.

RUN AWAY!!!

Are you that stupid that you keep on believing this person?

by Anonymousreply 2204/14/2019

Run from him, Op.

On the subject of con men, my brother worked until recently at the top of a property management firm. It managed the property for a major hotel chain, plus.

They were approached by a gay guy, it happens, who said he wanted to buy something big, and expected to be flown around the country free to see property. (Why would they do that?). So, he turned out to be a very young, 20s, con man. My bro knew, but his co-workers fell completely for it.

by Anonymousreply 2304/14/2019

I said it before, but I'll say it again, OP.

Run from this guy. Get away from him.

by Anonymousreply 2404/14/2019

I never believed a word which is why I checked thru county records and intelius.com which has public records (much for free). I’m traveling on vacation in his town. I’m was curious what he would say when I confronted his lies. I think some compulsive and/or pathological liars believe their lies. My dad taught me that you can’t really trust people. he wrote that “there are a large number of people that trust their life and livelihood to my judgement. you operate on a different level.”

by Anonymousreply 2504/14/2019

^im op

by Anonymousreply 2604/14/2019

I think the vast majority of people are trustworthy, but there will always be grifters trying to set us up and drag us down. I don't think they actually believe their lies; they just love lying -- it's their thing.

by Anonymousreply 2704/14/2019

Some people are compulsive liars. I was at a cocktail party once in Tallahassee, Fl, where this young guy (whom I recognized immediately as a member of the FSU student body), tried to tell me that he was actually a Hollywood producer. When my "oh, uh huh" failed to get the desired response, he upped the story to tell me about all the international block busters he had had something to do with. I can't tell from your story whether the guy is a run-of-the-mill conman or just a compulsive liar. Run away in either case...

by Anonymousreply 2804/14/2019

Please carry pepper spray or something with you. I'm afraid for your life. He could get angry being exposed by you and you never know what he's capable of. Please take care of yourself and always let someone know where and who you're meeting with.

Don't give him a cent.

And as you have found out for yourself, he's a liar, cannot be trusted. So DON'T be involved in anything with him.

by Anonymousreply 2904/14/2019

Op here. The guy said to me the first time I met him, Bill Gates doesnt have air conditioning. I’m from Seattle and weirdly grew up very near where Gates lives now (which I did not tell the con man) and know you would want ac from being on a hill with afternoon and evening sun hitting the house. later I texted him an article which specifically talked about Gates high tech “air conditioning.” The guy wrote back he didn’t know why I sent it cuz it confirmed what he said and Gates house had a heat pump not AC which denotes a compressor. I wrote back that the article did not mention any heat pump. at some point the guy claimed he was at Gates house 3 times for functions. con guy wrote back saying it mentioned geo-thermal (misspelled) and that is one of his areas of expertise. All the article said was the home was partially underground built into a hill. I regret calling him out now and this has really affected me and I’ve never contacted a private investigator.

by Anonymousreply 3004/14/2019

OP he sounds like a pathological liar. A con man would be more savvy. I once worked with a guy who lied consistently. It started with things like college or that he owned a vacation home on cape cod. When he tried to tell me he helped invent Tai Bo I knew he was off the rails.

by Anonymousreply 3104/14/2019

Was his name Joel?

by Anonymousreply 3204/14/2019

It wasn’t Joel if you’re asking OP. My ex said I shouldn’t talk to strangers and the guy is crazy. I read you shouldn’t confront the liars cuz the narcissist ones get abusive. He said “your ability to interpret info is not in the right gear.”

by Anonymousreply 3304/14/2019

Then was it Jarec?

Leave the picture with a trusted friend so the homicide detectives can put out a BOLO for him.

by Anonymousreply 3504/14/2019

R35 pretty funny. The guy was trying to impress with saying he had 5 college degrees too. he never asked where I went to college. he went to a non-impressive one too. What a blow hard!

by Anonymousreply 3604/14/2019

Well at least he could do something well...

by Anonymousreply 3704/14/2019

Why are you still talking to him? Block him.

If all else fails, punch and delete.

by Anonymousreply 3804/14/2019

Let me tell you what your mistake is.

DON'T confront people like this. You never know how they're going to act if they are challenged. If you're curious about how psychos react when they are confronted, there are myriad psychological journals with free articles that you can read online.

When you encounter people like this, you want them out of your life ASAP. They only cause problems. Punch and delete.

by Anonymousreply 3904/14/2019

It sounds like you are being seduced by the knowledge that he is a con man. He only needs you to believe or want to beleive one thing he tells you. Then you'll have been suckered.

by Anonymousreply 4004/14/2019

At this point I’m done unless he contacts me from another number or worse in person but he can’t drive in where I’m staying as it’s gated with a 24 hr guard. The lesson don’t give too much info to a stranger. I’ve one week left then I leave the state. If the P.I. says he’s dangerous I’ll leave early.

by Anonymousreply 4104/14/2019

Good luck OP. If you die, can I have all your stuff?

by Anonymousreply 4204/14/2019

Stay away.

by Anonymousreply 4304/14/2019

Confronting him means continuing to communicate with him. He will want to explain away what you point out to be falsehoods. Again and again and again. Do you think he’ll change or that the two of you will build a relationship based on trust from here on in? There’s nothing there for you. Just stop responding and move on.

He kept trying because you kept texting him back. Stop contacting him, dang.

by Anonymousreply 51Last Monday at 5:18 AM

All OP wants is a sugar daddy, but without the crazy baggage.

by Anonymousreply 52Last Monday at 8:51 AM

would he be able to lie his way past a security guard? He sounds like a darn good liar.

by Anonymousreply 53Last Monday at 9:02 AM

For me, all the investigation means the guy is hot, so he really wanted to know more about him

by Anonymousreply 54Last Monday at 9:09 AM

From the beginning you've doubted him and called him an outright liar over and over. After just once I'd would have cut all contact.

by Anonymousreply 55Last Monday at 9:13 AM

Don't waste time with him! Either he is very hot or you are fucking ugly and nobody has paid you any attention in a long time...that's why you like this attention, even though you know he's bad news.

by Anonymousreply 56Last Monday at 9:49 AM

Guys..since I started 5he post I cut contact by blocking him. He kept texting and I ignored but finally thought to let him know I knew he was full of bs thinking it would get him to stop...wrong. Lesson learned but the p.i. Never called me from fill8ng out an online form. he approached me in the store and I’m younger and considered very attractive...he had a pot belly and I was actually interested in the boat storage...I even drove by the home to see if 5here were boats in the backyard and there were.

by Anonymousreply 57Last Monday at 12:12 PM

P.I. Emailed a $500 background check quote but I did a state check online and there were no criminal or civil judgements if that’s to be trusted.
