Online Predator

Published on May 9, 2013 by klittykat

I live in a medium sized metropolitan area and sometimes use dating sites and craigslist to meet men for casual dating/hook ups. Several years ago I was duped by a man who misrepresented himself by using 20 year old photos. Which I discovered by him in public. Fast forward a year or so and I again went to meet someone and lo and behold, he was in the establishment, which he quickly exited. Of course, no one matched the photo of the person I thought I was meeting. He followed me to my destination and then continued to send me messages, which I ignored. There was another incident as well, where he was in the same establishment as I was and again, he sent me messages. Fast forward again til present day ... every site I go on, he contacts me, always using fake photos and different email addresses. I know this because I use google image search and the photos always end up matching a scam artist or various profiles which contain a certain phase or names the predator has used in the past. I experience a lot of anxiety now, while attempting to meet men online, always wondering if it is the wolf in disguise, yet again. I have come to the conclusion that it is not specifically ME he is seeking, but preying on many other women who live in my city. Apologies for the long letter, but I would like to either figure out a way to warn other women so they do not fall for his deception. Alternately, I fantasize about some type of revenge ... I've been able to ascertain his real name and address. The question is, what do I do with it? Send him an anonymous letter, letting him know that someone is on to him and tell him to back off and quit preying on women? Di I post a warning on Craigslist warning women about him? I am not about to do anything illegal, I just want him to stop preying on women! Please advise!!
