I will say that any woman who googles his name will at the very least be made aware that he is a scammer/con man. Prior to these Topix postings, there was no way for a woman to know his history. Thanks to Mary Lou who made the first post.  (Oct 4, 2017 | post #82)

Last known scam victim was last year. Had been scamming her for a number of years. No recent contacts from other victims.  (Oct 4, 2017 | post #81)

I want to again warn you about Mart Crowe Springboro, Ohio. Caucasian male, 5'8",180 lbs, gray hair, green eyes. Says he is a business consultant or owns his own business, perhaps fiber optics cable, perhaps working for the FCC, perhaps working in landfill technology. Always trolling for vulnerable, unsuspecting victims. on multiple dating sites. This is part of his fabricated story: Married high school sweetheart when 19. She was killed after they had been married 89 days. While preparing to bury his wife, sister was killed and he took in her two orphaned children. He will tell you that he prepared a home for and raised these 2 children, even though he was only 18. He will tell you that he also has 2 children from his second marriage. He says that his second wife cheated on him with their Youth Pastor, they divorced 1996. All the kids stayed with him. He came from a family of about 14 children, some natural, some adopted, some foster, some special needs. He has many relatives, as many as 100 cousins, many of whom have same name. Says that he was diagnosed as a young teen with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, had to spend a lot of time in the hospital, away from his family. Because there were so many children to take care of, his parents could not visit very often. He spent his time in the hospital reading books which led to him being able to get a college degree and work on his first master's dissertation before he was 18. His brothers and sisters are all involved in law enforcement and are supposedly able to easily hack into any computer system, including yours. He says he has a pilots license and flies planes for fun. He has connections to the Hell's Angels. He has money, power and influence. After you have been charmed and manipulated into becoming attached to him, he will confidentially tell you that he has been having some medical issues and has to have some tests. The tests will come back revealing he has brain cancer and has several inoperable tumors. Unfortunately, he has no health insurance because he used up the lifetime limit of over 1 million. But, he has managed to save $240,000 in a "war chest" to pay for his health related expenses. He doesn't want you to worry, but he frequently says he is in the hospital because of complications, or because of losing so much weight from nausea. You can't see him, because he doesnt want you to see him when he looks so bad, and of course, the massive radiation he has been exposed to may cause you some harm.Then, he confides that he has spent the $240,000 because has been paying for his treatment as he goes along.He says his other business bank accounts have been frozen to insure that he pays his employees. He is broke, needs an attorney to get accounts unfrozen, or for treatment to keep him alive.County is foreclosing on home, he is going to be homeless. However, he has assured you that if something really bad happens, you will be contacted by his attorney, he has made the attorney aware of who you are and has left specific instructions . However, he cannot let you know his address, or the name of his company, or other details about his life, because he is a very private person. This is basic story. Many, many more specific details. By the time you get the cancer story, you believe you are in a committed, monogamous relationship with a future together. You are more than willing to pay for his treatment, to give him a loan, to write a check for the attorney. You have already been on an emotional roller coaster and the ride is just beginning. You have multiple unanswered questions and no way to get answers. You have been traumatized by his stories of medical procedures gone wrong, mis diagnoses, stories of him being hungry or homeless, his stories/excuses of how hard he is trying to get well so he can be with you. Don't let yourself be deceived. Don't believe a single one of his lies. Don't ignore a single red flag. Don't be another victim.  (Jul 6, 2017 | post #79)

Someone please copy his mug shot from his last arrest AND MAKE SOME FLYERS. Post them all over his neighborhood, on local community bulletin boards, on car windshields, utility poles, in women's restrooms, etc. so that women can be warned. Someone needs to pass out those flyers at the local police station. And if you have read these posts, make sure your single female friends know to avoid Mart Crowe!  (Apr 27, 2016 | post #75)

I am very sorry to hear this. When will law enforcement do something about this man? He has been running this sick and twisted cancer scam story for many years and has hurt so many good vulnerable women....women who cared about him (or cared about the person he pretended to be). Ladies....I again advise you...do not give money to men who are not your relatives. Check out any man you are going to go out with. Run their name thru Google. Pay a search site to get information. We need to stop being so trusting!  (Apr 27, 2016 | post #74)

Ladies, this man has been charged twice, in two separate Ohio counties, with sexual imposition. In both cases, the charge was reduced to assault. In the case from November 2012, he was given a 180 day jail sentence, which was suspended, he was fined $500 and court costs, and he was placed on probation for two years. That probation is ending in mid November. It appears he has been laying low for the last two years, but I am sure he has been making plans to continue his scam. Be careful! DO NOT give money to men who are not your relatives. If you meet a man online, or in a bar, or who answers your ad on Craigslist, or who starts talking to you at your son's football game and then says he was drawn to you for some inexplicable reason, GOOGLE his name and read every page, every entry! Men like Mart Crowe are out there, looking for their next victim, and there are men who are not just looking to take your body and your money, they are looking to take your life.  (Oct 26, 2014 | post #71)

Mart is the kind of predator who attacks when his prey is at their weakest. He avoids strong women and women who ask questions don't stay in his clutches for too long before they are able to escape. Cincy also, I am sorry to add you to this sad list. However, I will assume that the Mart Crowe episode of your life has made you stronger and vulnerable no more. 2009 was a VERY busy time for Mart and I think he was perfecting his story and his scam. If you have any kind of evidence, please contact local law enforcement. He has been successfully sued in a civil lawsuit and it's probably not too late to file fraud charges. I am still pursuing writing a book about this internet predator and a website is already in development to expose this internet predator. Please contact me to tell me your story.  (Oct 26, 2014 | post #70)

Ladies, count the number of women who have commented on this forum alone. How many victims? Do yourself a favor and avoid this man! If you have met him on a dating site and googled his name, you have been brought to this forum. Do not ignore the warnings contained in this forum. He is not different now, he has not changed, it will not be different with you. A leopard does not change his spots. Please heed this warning.  (Aug 2, 2014 | post #61)

Did anyone see this article? http://www.dispatc h.com/content/stor ies/local/2013/10/ 21/scammers-steali ng-hearts-cash.htm l Looks like the State of Ohio is investigating online "romance " scammers. While I believe the article is referencing Nigerian scams, I'm sure the Attorney General for the State of Ohio would be interested in how you were scammed by Mart Crowe and his tale of cancer treatments and no insurance as well as the other tales he has used to scam women.  (Oct 30, 2013 | post #52)

Someone has talked with the detective who arrested him in 2012, to try and get his name on the Springboro police radar. He is currently on probation for the assault from 2012, probation ends November/December 2014. I am hopeful that current victims will file police reports and press charges. As I've said before, many women blame themselves and are ashamed of what happened. I just want to encourage victimized women to SPEAK UP. You are not the first woman to pay for a private detective. Also, several other women have also confronted the wife, and believe she knows exactly what is going on. I think Mart makes a living scamming women, and who knows, maybe they have a side thing going scamming men. I certainly would love to see him in jail. I believe you are victim #18 that I have spoken with. I seriously believe that at some point, he's going to mess with the wrong woman who won't just let it go and move on, but will take matters into her own hands to exact justice. From the women I've talked with, he was VERY active in 2009. Please contact me directly at yahoo to share more of your story.  (Oct 28, 2013 | post #50)

Stories of 10 people who faked cancer for cash. http://www.oddee.c om/item_98193.aspx If you've been scammed, if you gave Mart Crowe money for cancer treatments, or to save his business because he couldn't work because he was oh so sick-file a police report. Don't keep silent.  (Aug 23, 2013 | post #46)

Another one about a woman running a scam saying her daughter had leukemia so she could collect donations. She was charged with communication fraud. WOW! Sound familiar? Someone else using a cancer scam. This one caught and charged. Eventually, Mart's scams and lies are going to catch up to him. http://gma.yahoo.c om/blogs/abc-blogs /utah-mom-allegedl y-faked-daughters- cancer-collect-don ations-100110030.h tml  (Aug 23, 2013 | post #45)
