He hid behind many aliases @Ruidoquedito and @tom-tit-tot were but a couple. Penny didn’t know his real name. He lurked online, anywhere his anonymity was retained. Preyed on those that were low, those needing a trade. He chose his victims with care.
Always petite Blondes.
Mostly widows, desperate for company.
He looked such a nice chap. (Stock image. Well worth the investment.) Had a flattering line in patter. After time with his tale spun. He’d arrange a meet. Cash transfer first though. Then completely disappear.
Penny was lucky.
The first time she heard his name was in court.
