Plea for N.Y. dating site faker

A New York man who lied about being rich and important has pleaded guilty to stealing nearly $200,000 from women he met through online dating services.

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore says Solomon Jesus Nasser of Ardsley pleaded guilty Thursday to third-degree grand larceny.

DiFiore says Nasser “trolled Internet dating sites” looking for victims for nearly three years.

Among other things, he claimed he'd been a high-level Department of Defense official; an adviser to President George W. Bush; a Navy admiral; and a multi-millionaire who owned a jet.

He said he had cash flow problems due to legal issues, and asked for loans to cover living expenses.

Nasser could face up to seven years in prison when he's sentenced on Oct. 27. He's also being ordered to pay restitution.

Personally, when it comes to dating- I’ve just openly groveled and told all my sweet hearts I’m as broke as they come and hope for the best.

It's amazing how gullible people are. I guess the saying about a sucker being born every minute is true. I never "loan" money to girlfriends. If they already have money issues and have no family or friends to rely on, then I am not interested. The only women who get money from me are my sisters, daughter, mom, or wife.
