Scorned lover creates fake online dating profiles for exes

You just can't make this stuff up...

Apparently a jilted ex-boyfriend created some profiles for his ex-girlfriends on online dating sites. And not just any online dating sites -- he created one on a site for people looking to hook up with prison inmates (and called one of his exes a PORN STAR for fun)!

MyFoxHouston.com reports that 30-year-old Carl Wayne McGraw, Jr. has been accused by two women of creating multiple fake dating profiles for them online. To make matters worse, the women say McGraw has been using their real names, e-mail addresses, home addresses and phone numbers.

The first woman says she found several fake profiles for herself online after dating McGraw for two months. One of the profiles said she was a "porn star." The second woman says she broke up with McGraw after five months of dating after catching him in "multiple lies."

MyFoxHouston.com reports that McGraw is a suspect in the investigation and that investigators have charged him with online impersonation.

So, what can you do to safeguard your personal information to prevent it from being used against you? For starters, use your Date-a-Base email address for all communication. Even if someone gives out this email address, it won't matter because it has no direct tie to you (click here to read more about how to create your own Date-a-Base).

Use Google Voice or get a disposable cell phone. There's no need to reveal your true digits to anybody until you're in a long term relationship anymore. The less people have your direct dial -- the better.

Now, again, I'll never throw David Merkur under the bus. Remember him? Highly organized New York singleton with a spreadsheet that caused an uproar. Judge him as you will but I've always come to his defense -- the boy is organized, his only error was a lapse in judgement and sending the darn thing as it was, sans deleting some characters and photos. Nonetheless, his debacle earlier this year should serve as a wake up call to all singletons out there. And that lesson is this: you are responsible for the safekeeping of your own information.

If you don't have a Date-a-Base email, make one now. And while you're at it, do it on Google... it'll boost your chances that you'll get Google Voice next, which means you'll be on your way to blocking emails, dropping calls, and removing unwanted distractions from your life -- as soon as absolutely necessary.
