I was widowed in 2014 at the age of 52. Last year I decided to start dating again and began to join dating websites. I started talking to a few men, 3 to be exact, but wasn’t quite interested in them. Late one night I came across a profile that touched me.
He was a little younger than me and raising g his 5 year old child. He immediately told me he had been married 4 time and had 10 children. (Yes, I know, I should have run).
We dated for two months and started to talk about the future. He told me he could not live in town anymore, that he needed to be in the country.
I could no longer afford my house and had recently filed bankruptcy. My deceased husband left me with a huge IRS debt.
So a plan was hatched to sell my house and buy a property in the country. He promised to marry me if I purchased a property for us.
My house was paid off so I would be able to pay cash for a property. My house sold in two days. We found a house on 10 acres and made an offer on it and it was accepted.
I walked away with $54,000.00 and the spending spree began. He bought two Kawasaki ATV’s, a small ATV for his daughter, an enclosed trailer, a car hauler trailer, multiple guns, and a whole laundry list of other items.
And I gave him $10,000.00 to give to his ex-wife to sign custody over of his daughter.
Some of that money was to be used to pay off the utilities and Bill’s associated with the sell of the house. Needless to say, that never happened. And he confessed his divorce was not final yet.
Things were going well except that he would not help with any of the household bills. Any fights we had were over money. All the while he was still promising to marry me.
Then in May we had a huge fight over housework. My routine every day was to wake his daughter up, get her dressed, breakfast then off to the bus and I went on to work. After I got off work I would pick her up at the sitters ar 6:00pm, cook dinner, help her with her homework, put her in the bath and then off to bed. No help from him whatsoever. He asked me one day “when are you going to do housework?” The fight was on and I asked him to leave. He apologized, said he would do more around the house, and that was the end of it.
Then the harrassment began about him not feeling safe because I held all of the cards. Nightly he would harass me about putting his name on the deed until I finally did it.
Then in June he asked if we could just live together, that he was afraid to get married again. I said I was fine with that for now.
Then he had a friend move a shed on to the property so she could turn it into a tiny home. I believe he is having an affair with her.
In July he had his mother move a building on to the property to have a tiny home also. During her visit here we had an incident where one of my dogs killed a stray kitten and he threatened to kill my dog because of ot.
This past Monday, 8/14/18, he told me at dinner that he did not want to be in a relationship anymore, but wanted to build a house on the property and have me raise his daughter and he would let me dat other people.
That was not our agreement and I told him so.
I came home the next day with a list of how we were going to divide things and he was fine with that until his mother started getting involved. I was harassed in person and via text message for the rest of the evening.
The next morning as I was going to work I noticed he had removed the keys to the ATV’s and had is mistress come out to spend the night. I called the sheriff and they advised me to get a protective order.
I did, and after he got served the protective order he stole the ATV’s, trailer and other items.
I have hired an attorney and a civil case is being prepared.
I need $8,000.00 for the following:
$3,500.00 for attorney
$1,600.00 for the titles to the ATV’s
$1,500.00 for the car tag and insurance that I could not pay because he has cleaned me out.
The rest to get caught up on utilities and medical bills.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
