Woman FB Shames 'Fraud' BF Who Stole $3K And Exes Reply
Getting through a bad breakup can be pretty rough.
However, Catherine Blackett, a 22-year-old from Derbyshire, England, recently suffered more than just a broken heart when things ended with her boyfriend.
Blackett's ex, 42-year-old Thomas Raven, left her with an empty heart... and an even emptier wallet.
Apparently, Blackett's ex-boyfriend stole over $3,750 from her and even opened up fraudulent credit cards in her name.
In an attempt to stop Raven from doing this again, Blackett turned to Facebook to warn other women about her "fraud boyfriend."
She posted two pictures of Raven, along with a caption detailing her experience with him.
In the post, she reveals the scam artist's true identity:
I just want to make you all aware of this man. His name is Thomas Raven (Aka Paul Slaney). Paul is his birth name but legally changed it to Tom (which was his acting name). He still uses both names when it benefits him. DOB 26.03.74 he has been known for lying to women about his age.
Then she dives into the ugly details,
He goes for women of all ages, he tends to pick out the vulnerable ones so he can easily manipulate them. He will wine and dine you, buy you flowers, tell you everything you want to hear. He'll promise you the world... But things will change. I hate to say it but I am one of many who have fallen into his trap. He will bleed you dry of your money as he has with myself and other ex's.
Blackett reveals Raven spent, "over £3K on my credit card without me knowing on furniture for his house, presents for myself and his children and more."
But that's not all.
According to Blackett, "Two months after I walked away from him, I found out he fraudulently opened two store cards in my name, making himself an additional card holder using his birth name. He worked up a debt which then left me with bad credit and the companies chasing me for the money."
At the end of the post, she writes, "I know posting this won't benefit me, I've already lost my fight with him but I hate the thought of him doing it to yet another women and getting away with it again."
It turns out that Blackett isn't the only woman who's been burned by this terrible man.
Shortly after shaming Raven on Facebook, his other ex-girlfriends began commenting on the post and sharing their own awful experiences with the despicable guy.
One woman said she had also fallen for Raven's manipulative games.
Another ex said he took $3,250 from her — and had the nerve to bring other women to her house while she was at work.
If that's not bad enough, one woman who dated this "douche" even talked about how he once punched her in the arm.
Blackett decided to take things a step further by exposing this fraudster in the Sunday Mirror, too.
Raven responded to Blackett's allegations, stating, "I am not a bad person. She's just bitter and it all spiralled out of control."
However, based on Blackett's Facebook post, it appears that Raven has a long list of outspoken ex girlfriends who think otherwise.
