VAN NUYS (CBSLA.com) — A woman from Van Nuys says she was conned after meeting a man on a dating site.
As Diane Guilmette explains, she received a flattering message from the man she says she met on the dating site, Plenty of Fish.
“And I got a message from this guy. It was really a very flattering message,” said Guilmette, explaining that the man initiated the conversation.
She says, after a few messages, the two decided to meet at Morton’s Steakhouse in downtown LA.
“A little pricey for me but I agreed,” she said.
Guilmette said the man wasn’t shy when it came to ordering.
“He ordered a lot of food. He had an appetizer. He ordered a steak. This restaurant is all al la carte. He even ordered a couple sides, a glass of wine. So he was looked like he was really enjoying himself,” Guilmette said. “When we got near to the end of the meal, not quite finished, he said he had to go make a phone call.”
About 15 minutes later, Guilmette realized he wasn’t coming back.
