Romancing the con

Posted by Ria, 06 Mar 07

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.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

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.

    High Five Fala! Those out there looking for the "perfect man" are bound to be burned by someone like this. Nothing like having a job and getting what you need by yourself. Its a lot more gratifying when I see all the things I have worked hard for!

    Poor guy has that deer in the headlights look. Probably never thought he'd get caught. There's scammers everywhere

    I can't believe women still fall for this kind of stuff. Wake up ladies - prince charming doesn't need to buy you. Get a job and get it yourself.
