I grew up with this guy, he is all the things people say a liar manipulator and we all here back in MD hope this haunts him the rest of his life.

Does anyone have a update as to if he is out and what he is doing to warn other people.

Thats a shame.. He was always a liar, everyone that knows him from MD will tell you. Hes a phony that will no doubt will mess up again. I predict a fatter (if thats possible) older matt being arrested again for trying to lure a child into his realm. Hes not that gifted musically either.. Girls fall for any guy with a handle on the guitar. He has no range and very limited artistic ability. I saw him live once and it was one of the worst shows Ive ever seen live. Ive seen thousands of acts and his that night stands out bc it was so bad. I saw him at johansons in westminter, it was awkward off pitch and unoriginal. Then he proposed to a girl afterwards (another victim Im sure). We stood around and made fun of him while we smiled to his face. It was sad and pathetic. He ran out of here in his 20ies, people by then knew he was the king of bs. Matt, we all did better here, we were and still are better men then you.. Please never come back, we will call you out when we see you.

Well watch out ladies. His MO is single moms, slightly overweight, low self esteem, or emotional problems. Not being catty, I speak from experience. After his ass was put away I lost 85 lbs.. And have since found a wonderful man that I married. To Matt-go to hell! If I EVER see you in public, watch out!,,

I am glad to see this post still exists, and I hope it persists and follows him for life so any woman even thinking about looking at him might have a chance to be warned. Nice girl, I am glad you moved on. I sincerely hope that you take whatever you have that has any sentimental attachment to him and burn it. I hope that his chrons turns into full blown ass cancer and he wastes away into nothingness. Matt Crum. What a joke.

So i guess i am the next victim of the infamous Matt Crum. I was a co worker just recently. I just got out of a marriage a am putting my pieces back together. I started at this place and within a week he had my number saying he just likes to chat sometimes. By the first txt it was sexual then turning into more and heavier shit! I would try to change the mood but he would beg me to talk dirty and get him off. I even met his program people to try to be part of his life. He would say shit like he wanted me to be the one he changed his life and his ways with. Saying baby and he lived me by like the 2nd day we spoke. He has told a different story i have talked to and i believed the story i was told until i looked him up. He learned NOTHING from being in jail... In fact he probably liked it getting fucked up the ass. All he talked about was how he wanted me to do dirty shit to him and put a strap on on and fuck him with it. He sent me pics and videos so i know he either had access to internet or people sending him stuff. He will never stop! My boss said she thinks he liked me because i look so young! I have considered contacting his PO bit dint really know where to start or know if its worth it. I only let this shit go on a few weeks as i knew something was off with that guy. Im so glad i read all these postings today. He IS a monster. He is very sick even after some jail time. He even told me he just said what he had to to get out. When i asked him if he got raped in jail one day he just smiled... In this slight sick sweaty way and adverted my question. He loved it in there and just played the part he had to to start again on the outside.

People def need to be warned about Matt Crum. Truly i think he is going mad! I think he could be the next serial killer! The desperation is swelling over him! Speaking to him you feel so badly but then you think when he gives you a moment alone and realize you dont even know this guy!! How are all these feelings and emotions exploding and happening! I decided i didnt want to talk to him and stopped talking to him at work and on the phone after about 4 love-crazy months where even marriage and life plans were chatted about. I had a vision of him that scared me which is what made me decided to stop communicating originally with him. He begged and pleaded saying i was his only hope for a future and how much he loved me and needed me. He will never stop manipulating people! Men and women and children! Everyone in his path is in harms way. He cant help himself! Which is why he needs to be locked away again in my eyes! Def watch out for this man as he will lie until the very end as he knows no truth but needing to get off.

The scariest thing of all is i do know he just found a new place for his probation that is more lenient than the previous one. He couldnt pass his lie detector test about sexual contact at the other one. He said he only had sex once with an ex since he was out and even told on him self but he was still not passing. Ha! Of course not! Im almost 100% he was also having a sexual txting relationship with at least one other co-worker and possabily 2 but she would never say. Wow. I just wish i had read this whole thing. Onelove i hope you have found your peace. I feel we are very alike. Nice girl you seem really cool and id love to grab a drink w ya one day, im in denver.:)! After reading all this today and feeling strong enough about this to get involved in the conversation i feel like i have to contact someone. I promise i will make a ripple for him at least. I hope his PO will listen or if he has totally won her over already

Ok ladies.... He is on a dating site without his photo and is hidden very very well right now. He gave me a fake name. But I am smarter and absolutely horrified by what I've found. Thank God for this thread.

I met him tonight.(Knowing full well, all the details of his conviction.)I didn't read all the comments on this thread, but now I have. Believe me, I just threw up twice.

We are supposed to go for a drive tomorrow for his birthday..... But he had to bail tonight and tomorrow night for celebrations with his friends.

After reading all of this.... There's no way I'm going to meet up with him in private. I got out of an abusive marriage. I'm slightly overweight.... And a single mom. I'd already done my homework including finding all his family members and roommates. He's living and workinformation with other sex offenders.

Who has the PO information? And how long is his probation? He doesn't know that I know Who he is.....because of his fake name.

He made a mistake thinking I have low self esteem and that he could play me. A very very unfortunate mistake. Who is located here in Denver?

Good for you for finding him out before you got involved further! He is a dirty slimy pervert. I didnt know how to reach his PO either, i was about to just call the police department and was going to ask who to talk to.
i hope his neighbor sees your post. She reached out to me after i left my posting. We were supposed to meet up for drinks and she chickened out saying she talked to Matt and he told her i was obsessed with him and she was his girlfriend. Hahaa! Well anyway i hope you drop my name even. kerry, just to see his reaction. We did work together and we started dating. He even let me meet his probation person to start letting me be a "visiting friend" so we could do stuff and i could come over. He told multiple stories until he found a most believable one and went with that. I was told he was fausly accused of getting a blow job from an under aged girl from his work. He started telling everyone else he was in a band and an underaged girl gave him a blowjob one night at a club and he didnt know and then got into trouble.
I must admit i did drop the ball and didnt contact his PO. I was just going to call the police and ask who to talk to. I didnt cause i was getting obsessed once that neighbor chick listened to him and a co-worker who was his roommate was saying he was saying all this shit about me. I had to just let it go... But i just knew the next victum would be on my hands... And now its even worse cause its a dating site. Where he'll strike beyond what i ever thought. Please call the police and just say who do I contact. I actually know there was a little more to the story than we all know from the news cast so yeah... Matt Crum is a total piece if shit! He is totally obsessed with sex and i know if deprived evough he will do who knows what i could see it in his eyes. He needs to be put away for a long time and not let out. He is a total loser and just trying to get some left overs he thinks he may be able to get something out of because he knows he cant get his own shit. That dude mcant even carry a decent tune. When he gave me a e-mail of like 6 songs he thought were his best i just listened and was silent with wanting to bust out laughing! I couldnt believe his poor parents had paided in sure good money for that crap to be recorded. BLAAHAHAHAHA!!
Well i would meet up with you but i have since left Denver. I lived there about 12 years but it has become omver run snd filthy. Im over it there. I do hope you bust his fat ass and keep your head up. ;)!!

Holy Hell - I left you a message, but I don't know if you actually receive those here. My friend is the "neighbor" Hary Kall was talking about. I don't want her to be hurt by this guy, and I know he's good at turning the tables on a conversation. I would really like to be able to show her some actual proof that he's still got the same issues as before, but I need something more than a forum post. If you could contact me through the message feature, or leave some info here, that would be so helpful! If I could show her the dating account, and/or some screen captures of your texts, she would believe that. I just want her to move on with her life instead of continuing to wait on a guy that can't stay faithful and put her first (instead of one of many)!

HK - I was sad she didn't go meet with you. Unfortunately, her father had recently passed away and it was very easy for her to be manipulated by the "she's just crazy" lies.*sigh*

Hasn't anyone heard of innocent until proven guilty? It seems anyone accused of something like this is automatically judged in the eyes of the public, and has to fight their way back to innocence. I'm not saying he did, or didn't do it. And if he did, he obviously needs help, but it isn't uncommon for men in this line of work to be accused of something they didn't do. Just food for thought. No one will know the facts until this goes to trial.
WELL THIS MAN DID DO IT! HE IS CAUGHT BECAUSE HE TRIED TO USE HIS POWER AGAINST ME PERSONALLY AND SENT ME A TON OF PICTURES OF HIS PENIS AND SOME GIRL(not his wife) GIVING HIM PLEASURE! AND I TURNED HIS ASS IN TO THIRD WAYS STAFF THE MOMENT HE LEFT TO GO HOME. HE ASKED ME TO BE WITH HIM, TO LET HIM SHOW ME WHAT HE HAD TO OFFER ect... GROSS YOU ARE A STAFF MEMBER IN A FACILITY THAT EVERY ONE OF THESE CHILDREN IN HERE HAVE BEEN ABUSED IN SOME SORT OF WAY. me included... THANK GOD I HAD BEEN THROUGH THE THERAPY I NEEDED TO IN ORDER TO TELL ON THIS SICK MAN! THERE WAS A GIRL IN THE PLACE WE WERE AT THAT WAS ALSO HAVING SEX WITH HIM ON HIS "OVERNIGHT SHIFTS" WHO WAS ONLY 15. SO INNOCENT I THINK NOT!!!!!!!!
