There’s are a couple old sayings that have been mottos in my family for years: ‘Fake it till you make it,’ and ‘If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t tryin.’ This pertains to job interviews, taxes, video games, and basically anything you can cheat in.
That’s why a part of me, the worst part of me, applauded this dirtbag who managed to swindle the affection and net worth of many women by being a world-class fraud. A true snake oil salesman.
42-year-old Thomas Raven was outed on Facebook by 22-year-old ex-lover Catherine Blackett after she found out he racked up huge debts in her name after he fraudulently opened up store cards in her name after they split.
She said: ‘He told me he’d pay it back and not to make a big deal.”
Catherine then discovered Raven had bought her Christmas presents – plus gifts for his kids – on the same credit card. A credit card which he failed to pay off the balance, resulting in a credit hit for Catherine.
