We Can All Learn Something From This Chick That Extorted a Guy She Met Online By Telling Him She Had Cancer
Metro- The 31-year-old, from Aberdeen, met Matthew on the dating website Plenty of Fish and they went for their first date near St Paul’s Cathedral in London in April 2014.
Roche had told him she had ovarian cancer but he thought she had gone into remission, but she then told Matthew she was going to see a consultant.
Roche said surgery was needed to remove a growth on her ovaries or have them removed completely, adding that it would be a six-month wait on the NHS but could be done in a couple of days if she went private. Matthew was so concerned and wanted to help her so he lent her £6,800 for the surgery.
She only told him the operation was at a hospital in north London and did not take warmly to him visiting her there.’
Following the surgery, Roche asked her boyfriend to pay for private prescriptions and post-operative care and he gave her a further £2,000.
Matthew then did not see her for a while and it became clear the relationship was over, so he asked her to repay the money.
Mr Walker said: ‘He felt he had been exploited – and, of course, he had. The excuses continued to flow.’
Matthew only found out when Roche’s sister called him and told him he ‘had been had’ and to call the police.
Whew. This is exactly what society needed, and by that I don't mean more superficial, gold digging women. Don't get me wrong, this broad is the lowest of the low. It doesn't get more reprehensible than the person that lies about having one of the most devastating illnesses known to man just to be able to afford botox. She stands alone at the top of the list of the worst people in the world. There's no doubt about that.
With that said, she provided us with a very necessary reminder that random people on the internet aren't always trustworthy. I feel like there used to be a sense of skepticism involved with online dating. A sense of skepticism that has started to wear off with how mainstream it has become to look for love on the computer. Now, you have girls meeting up for one night stands within minutes of sharing casual banter. Dudes frivolously sending dick pics to women whose last names they don't even know. It's a crazy, crazy world out there, and this story should help bring attention to that. Just because there are now 'Plenty Of Fish' in the sea doesn't mean that there are any less catfish. Just because it's more widely accepted doesn't mean it's any less dangerous.
Listen, as a man I should be taking the guy's side here. Especially since his opposition is apparently the daughter of Cruella DeVille. Unfortunately, I just can't do so. The best part about online dating is that you can pick out exactly the type of person that you want. Don't like blondes? Go with brunettes. Don't like tall girls? Search for a short one. Don't want to pay for cancer treatments? Don't select the girl that didn't notify you that she needed them until after you met her in person. Going on a date with someone from the internet is the only time you can justifiably ditch a person for telling you they have cancer. Even if this chick DID have a deadly disease, it's false advertisement that she didn't get that "fun fact" out of the way in the preliminary conversation. There's no expectations involved with online dating. You don't owe the person anything. This guy deserves everything he had coming to him because he believed a woman that he met on a free dating site, and that's the fastest way to find yourself paying fake hospital bills.
