ATLANTA — It took awhile. But they finally got his ass. John Martin Hill (aka Rotten Romeo) was thrown in the slammer Tuesday night after the serial mountebank was accused of conning a Georgia woman out of $80,000. According to police reports, John met the vacuous damsel March 27th on Match.com, a dating website for desiccated singles. John, 35, lied to the lonely bachelorette, telling her he’s an ascending millionaire with adamantine aspirations of holy matrimony. As anticipated, the gullible colleen took the bait and John reeled her in.

After a week of dating, the couple got engaged.

John then hoodwinked his new fiancée into giving him $80,000 to purchase a house.

“During their short romance, he convinced her that they were in love and wanted to buy a house together,” said Police Corporal Michele Pihera, a spokeswoman for Gwinnett County. “They went house-hunting and selected a home they were interested in.”

After securing the mazuma, John changed both his name and phone number — cutting off all communication. “Following the exchange of money, the suspect ceased all contact,” Pihera said. John apparently used some of the cash to procure a 2014 BMW that he painted black.

Realizing she got duped, the jilted querida called the authorities to launch an investigation.

During the probe, detectives discovered John lived with his girlfriend and a child in Duluth, Georgia. “The woman said she is in a relationship with the suspect,” Pihera said. “However, she didn’t know what his profession was. Also, she said he was only home on weekends.”

“During the week, she didn’t know where he went.”

Hmm… she’s in a relationship with a live-in boyfriend, yet she doesn’t know what he does for a living and she has absolutely no idea where he is most of the time; not to mention her child is around this strange man. Hate to say it, but some of today’s mothers are f*ckin’ idiots.

Investigators also learned John altered his moniker at least five times the past two and a half years while defrauding several chicks in multiple states. In addition to Georgia, John is wanted in Virginia, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. He’s charged with theft by deception — a felony.

“By sharing this story, it is our hope that he is not able to victimize any other women using this scam,” Pihera said. “These types of con men are very good at manipulating their victims. They tend to say everything that a woman wants to hear.”

What’s your take?

Does John deserve serious jail time?

Should people become chary of dating online?

    The moral of the story is never give your money to anyone, not even your own spouse! It is yours. You earned it. There is nothing another person can do with your money which will benefit you, so don’t give it away. You earned it. It is yours. You never have any guilt for refusing to give your money or control over your money away.

  34. gotta be a special place in hell for these scammers

  35. Probably a stripper that wanted to settle down and he was able to take advantage of it, what woman has 80K laying around like that.

  36. Demetrius Roper

    White women usually do dumb stuff like this. They have income to burn away and hide in embarrassment after the fact. I did meet my girlfriend online so if used right these dating sites can work. If you use them correctly. These dating sites are all scams and most of people that use them are many other dating sites as well.

  37. It was the online users responsibility to see the signs and cut off the person who’s asking for money. The dating website has warned people about the red flags.

  38. Felicia Edwards

    If the man was supposedly a millionaire, why is asking her for money. He was suppose to provide and protect. What is wrong with these women. Why would you give a so called millionaire money to buy you a house and furniture. He would have had to show me his financial portfolio before I would make any kind of commitment with his Grass Hopper looking A$$. Women need to stop hooking up with these men on those dating sites. A good man worth having would not be looking for a serious relationship or potential wife on a dating site. Those sites are just as bad as back in the day people use to date men they found in the Wanted section of the daily news paper. I don’t feel sorry for any of the women that he took advantage of. IJS

  39. Whether you meet a person on line or not, they still can be a scam

  40. $80,000? Is she that bored and don’t know how to spend her money? Well she could pay off my student loans hell those are definitely not a scam…🤦🏿‍♀️

  41. Linda Swanigan

    Being desperate has a price

  42. Wise up no Love in this day and age…keep your money be happy alone!

  43. I bet if you asked this ho for $20 in the street, she would say get a job. But she gave this nigga 80k. Smh

  44. I dated a guy 2 hours away (met him when I was training locally), until he asked me for gas money to come visit. That’s my child’s food money, no thanks. I don’t see how a potential partner who asks for money is in any way attractive.

  45. GTharo McScrooge

    Brother, I love it when this stuff happens to woman. 😆😆 Woman shake down men all day both by legal and non legal means

  46. A playette got played by a playa! Keep it pimpin brother!
