Des-perate and dateless

August 13, 2007

Filed under ‘don’t know whether to laugh or cry’. Take a good look at this fellow below. Hard to believe that such a fine figure of a man would be struggling to get a date, but poor old Des Gregor, 56, has just returned from a holiday of a lifetime in Mali where he had gone to meet his internet ‘girlfriend’. He also believed he was on a promise not just of some big-time loving but a dowry of $100K.

Desparate Des

Of course, when Mr Gregor arrived, his ‘girlfriend’ had morphed into several large men carrying weapons and demanding money. Luckily he managed to get away relatively safely after some intense negotiations by international agencies.

Desperate Des was obviously sleeping the day they were handing out brains: he’d also previously been scammed in a Russian bride sting!

Hey Des – I have a bridge I’m looking to sell. I’ll throw in some free shopper dockets and an all-you-can-eat buffet token at Garfunkels 🙂

Oh wait, turns out he’s busy working with some nice folks from Nigeria who’ve promised him a cut of some deceased estate in return for
his bank details.

Lucky fella!
