Dominique Robinson just moved to Nashville and found her new love on a dating app. Their love took off…but then he took off — in her car – without her permission.
Dominique Robinson is a hard working mom, looking for love.
Dominique Robinson says, “We text all the time where are you? How are you? Oh, he was wonderful. charming, charming as a boyfriend. Very charming and that was the trick.”
Robinson went fishing and found her love on the dating app “plenty of fish”.
She says it all started out like a dream…romantic dates, kind words. She introduced her new boyfriend to her family and friends then things took a turn.
“I started seeing the red flags when I started getting inboxes from women. other women saying, I’m his girlfriends. I’m pregnant. He’s saying they’re lying.”
Dominique says the man she fell for, fell for other women too.
Taking their hearts, their money and now her car leaving her and her kids without a way to get around.
Each woman saying they met him on other dating sites – at least four other apps.
Just like Robinson, promised her the world but took her for everything it happens a lot. It happens a lot.
Robert Young, a former Metro officer and now private investigator says people using dating sites to scam people is a danger that’s showing no sign of slowing down especially when Valentine’s Day rolls around.
Private Investigator Robert Young says, “If you’re hiding behind a cell phone,you’re going to be able to make up whatever you can make up pretty much anything… you can type up… could be the truth or not the truth.”
Dominique Robinson says, “It’s very fearful. I’m kind of embarrassed because I have girls. My children have to watch their back.”
Robinson says she does not know if or when her boyfriend will come back or what he will do.
For now, her family and neighbors are keeping watch.watch their back.
Police eventually found Robinson’s car left abandoned at a Chattanooga Walmart.
