55-year-old Larry Butler of Parts Unknown is accused of posing as a Joplin, Missouri tornado victim on the free dating site PlentyOfFish.
Investigators say that Butler would use the site to prey on people’s sympathies in order to rob them. In one instance Butler allegedly stole a truck which led to Butler and an innocent women being arrested. In another instance Butler allegedly stole $15K in property of woman who allowed him to stay there.
I like the fact that there are people who have better hearts than mine and are willing to open their homes like this however they must realize that there are people willing to stoop as low to pose as a victim of the tragedy in order to con them.
