Bad Connection

Long Island Man Arrested For Using Adam4Adam To Rob Online Hookups


Here is yet another reason to be very, very careful when meeting guys online, and he goes by the Adam4Adam profile name HUGE12.

In this case, “huge” was probably referring to the pistol he was packing when heading out to meet potential victims.

22-year-old Long Island resident Marquise J. Utsey has been arrested for various crimes committed against men that he met up with via the popular hookup website.

On three separate occasions between December 29th and January 3rd, Utsey stole money and cell phones from men that he’d met after threatening them with a gun and a knife. All men were thankfully unharmed.

Late afternoon on Wednesday, investigators contacted Utsey on Adam4Adam using the HUGE12 screenname, and he was arrested when he offered sex in exchange for money from an undercover officer.

Long Island police officers are unaware of how long Utsey’s been pulling the scam on A4A members, but they suspect that there may be more victims who haven’t filed reports, and are asking anyone who may have been a victim to contact First Squad at 516-573-6152.

So think with your big head when arranging to meet people from online apps and hookup sites, and remember to be safe out there.

    Ok you decide you don’t want to work for a living, sign up to be a internet whore/robber. You use your real contact information and maybe a picture or two to draw the marks in. Sir you are a genius, enjoy dating in jail.

    He’s only 22?! Only desperate, tweaked-out tricks need apply.

    He was probably thinking that gay guys would be an easy mar and not report him for fear of being exposed. Well, screw him!!! We are NOT victims!!!

  • Black Pegasus

    @Caleb in SC: You hit it on the head. These types of crimes happen more often than reported but because of stigma and shame of being gay, many victims don’t report these crimes. These robberies also happen more frequently among male escort ads you see on and other sites. Be careful guys.

    It’s a great plan. If I were a thief or a basher, I would make a fake profile with a stock photo and get some dumb idiot who has never met me to agree to leave his door unlocked for me.

    You youngin’s HAVE to get over the ease of these programs and go do the unthinkable… meet someone.

  • babybabybaby

    Glad they caught this bastard Guys be careful out there….

    @Caleb in SC: Unfortunately some of the gay guys on these sites are an “easy” mark, and @Black Pegasus: he did not hit it on the head. From experience, when I was on A4A a few yrs back, advertised as a top, I would get MANY request from guys, who did not know me, or if the photos were real, or as in the above case, could be a robber, to just come in, the unlocked door, and my on-line date would be in the bedroom, ass naked, on their stomach, waiting to be fuck#d… This fantasy request was often. Yes maybe not reported because of the stigma of being gay, but also because of “putting” oneself in a foolish and dangerous position…

    He has that look of a black dude who is bad news so I would never have given his the time of day.

  • seaguy

    @oilburner: Bitter cause no one wants to hook up with you on aDAM4aDAM?

  • KDub

    If you invited that over to your house, you deserve whatever you got. Common sense, guys!

  • Raquel Santiago

    What is even Scarier is that Adam4Adam hasn’t even pulled down his ad, its still on there. You don’t even need an account to search and find it.

  • disneyvillain
