The pity is this man has a history of this but it is dificult to persuade the police to take this sort of behaviour seriously. I know of at least two other women in other parts of the country affected by this man's deception, Please this is a plea to other women who may have come into contact with him get in touch with Northumbria police or the journalist Brenda Hickman. He neds to be stopped

I was one of his victims that has since come forward to the police only to be told that it is not a criminal matter but a civil matter. I know at least 4 other women that have been affected by his scam - He has a massive history of this deception. Surely it is criminal for him to be doing this - i cannot vent my frustration loud enough!!

He is a lying conman. I was lucky I didnt give him a penny and sent him packing.Sob stories of bitch exes and ill health. He told one lie after another.

Hopefully he will get what he deserves he is a lowlife scumbag

I have actually got some sense now & the police are now investigating him on my behalf & on 2 other womens behalves. I would stress that if it has happened to you, PLEASE inform your police & inform them that he has been charged with the exact same offence. The more people that come forward the better.

After reading all of you comments I think you should be a little more carefull about what you choose to beleive. Who's to say that you weren't after the 'money' he was making as a 'brain surgeon' would't most middle aged, single lonely women find this an attractive package? seems to me both parties may have been in it for the same reasons. As far as comparing him to a peodaphile is disgusting their victims are vunerable and helpless not stupid and gullable.

Speaking for myself I am neither stupid or was I in it for the money.I got out pretty damn quick with my dignity and bank balance intact.

I feel sorry for the women who have lost their cash.

Nobody has the devine right to treat another human being with so little respect.

I wish the police would investigate the way Gordon Brown takes money off us under false pretences.

i disagree. my friend was one of his victims and she lent him the money out of kindness and not to make a profit. he did not reel these women in by being flash. he preyed on their good nature by trying to get sympathy for his so called leg amputation.i think people should have all the facts before judging the victims.

Speaking for myself - i was NOT in it for the money, neither am i stupid/gullable. I have a very good job, own my own home etc.

I dont think you should be making comments like that if you are not in receipt of the full facts or indeed know the individuals concerned.

This man deserves to go to prison for a very long time due to the amount of lives he has ruined.

We are intellectual women, with careers, homes who have been spun a web of lies and some people have lost more than others.

Does anyone know if this poor specimen of a man has been sentenced yet?

I am making a statement to the police today. He conned me out of several thousand pounds. I am neither gullible nor unintelligent - but he is a professional conman. He took me to Rome and asked me to finance it on my credit card, as his had been lost - the previous week he had wined and dined me and we stayed in a 5* luxury hotel - he paid with "his" cash - or some other unsuspecting women's money. He said he would got to the bank when we got back and pay me in cash - didn't happen. I became suspicious and said I didn't want to see him again - cut my losses. Hopefully he will eventually be put behind bars for a long time.

TO ANON WOMAN 27 - You dont know what you are talking about - how can you generalise. Most of his victims were extremely wealthy themselves - my ex husband's salary far exceeded a brain surgeons - so I didn't want any of his money. I became very suspicious after two weeks as his stories became more and more far fetched.
ANON 27 - your comments are totally unhelpful.
I agree with the previous comments - report it to the police - we'll see him on the news soon, hopefully in HANDCUFFS!!!!

Similar story to Edinburgh lady. Unreal!!

Agree with Rotherham lady - he had lost his "mojo" lol. He allegedly went to a clinic in London - to have an injection in it. Yuk. Even the thought is disgusting!! And actually - could he even see it??

Must've been conning someone down there at the time whilst I only had promises of being paid back the horrendous amount of money he took from me. Hmmm, these are phrases I heard on a daily basis - for 9 months... "dealing with it", "sorting it", "I'm getting a bankers draft now", "I'm in the queue". He didn't like my retort of "are you queuing in the Northern Rock bank queue, cos you've been there for 9 hours!"

What a loser. Hope he gets his just desserts :-)

Anon Thornaby - how long ago did you go out with him.
I finished with him in June 2007 - does anyone know when he was arrested.

He told me he had lost his mojo too - no wonder as he was so big - he asked if I fancied him and I said if you were 6 stone lighter - he then sent photos of him much thinner - however this may have been the stress of being arrested. Know he is still smug - but maybe not so smug when behind bars - lots of the prison inmates WONT have lost their mojo. lol
