Romancing the con
You think the dude above is scared? Think again. He’s generous… His hunting ground, interracial dating websites. He’s known for showering his prey with gifts… dozens and dozens of roses, electronic equipment and video games for those with kids at home, limo rides. And it doesn’t end there, some woman got a BMW. And even before you get over his generosity and the excitement of having met Mr. Right, the magical words pop…“will you marry me?᾿ If that doesn’t sweep you off your feet… then woman, you’re strong as a diamond.
Indian Hill's Ernest Baker is known for giving gifts. "He's a con man," said Assistant Prosecutor Andrew Berghausen after he successfully argued last week that Baker be jailed on $500,000 bond. He even managed to con a Human Resources Manager. No offence but I have always thought they are trained to judge human behavior… Well Mr. generous succeeded. He’s thorough.

The 44 year old Baker was charged with 5 counts of theft. He met, befriended, sweet-talked and pampered with gifts - and then stole at least $100,000 from the women. He used the line of being in real estate, trying to help the women invest. Apparently "He's fixed the deals in some way that when (the sale) closes, he gets paid and they get stuck with mortgages they can't afford," Berghausen said. :twisted:
Well it’s the BMW above that got him caught. The car was the result of another smooth-talking theft by Baker - one that ultimately unmasked his lies and put him behind bars. I know people lie about their personality… But conning other people seriously looking for love? This is a first. Now this is the true meaning of being a victim of love. Watch out for the likes of Baker peeps. For more on this story click here.
