If Matthew Attenborough Messages You Online And Asks To Stay The Night, Say No

It’s hard to feel too bad for a scam artist’s victim who meets a random stranger online and then agrees to let this stranger live with him for a week — and then get’s robbed. That’s what British police say Matthew Attenborough, 30, has done to a string of gay men he’s targeted online. In a recent case a “43-year-old victim said a man who had been lodging with him for a more than a week had made off with about £600 in cash and credit cards.” The pair met online. So here’s a trip: The Internet can be great for finding sexual partners. It can be great for finding roommates. But do not confuse the two.
