This man preys on vulnerable women. He looks for women just out of relationships who have a good job, good credit and money. He will almost immediately profess his undying love and devotion. He perpetrates himself as a millionaire business man with multiple "degrees" including a PhD in Business but currently experiencing rough times. He will romance you with flowers, gifts, trips, etc. and then after about 3 weeks maybe less, will ask you to get an American Express card or other credit card that you may not have and ask that you get him a supplementary card. He will then ask you to finance a car for him with the promise of depositing money in your account each month to cover the payments. He will also drain you of any savings or line of credit you may have. Lastly, he will deposit fraudulent cheques into your bank account from a US Bank accounts (mainly from Los Angeles).

The cheques will initially clear, he will ask you to withdraw the funds and then a week or so later, they will bounce and you will be left accountable. He will then promise to pay you back and make everything right but he has to get the money from his family and they will only give it to him, if he returns to his daughter's mother and leaves you. He is of Persian descent but speaks many languages, including Italian. He also claims to have Italian roots and will tell you his family has ties to Bulgari, Fiat, etc. He is a total LIAR! He may also be schizophrenic and violent. One more thing, he will tell you that he has some sort of ailment, either a tumour in his back or in his brain and needs to have surgery. The guy is total bad news and has done this act to several women in the Vancouver area and possibly Southern California as well. Basically, he drains your savings, line of credit, defrauds your bank account, rack up $20,000 in credit card debt and has you finance a luxury car you can't afford and then takes off claiming he left for "surgery" and will also tell you that you betrayed him in some way causing him to leave.

Total jerk, stay far away!!!
