I met darren on plenty of fish and fell hook line and sinker ,a charmer after being close and messages chats . he asked if i could lend him £400 pounds as a cheque had bounced and things wer becoming tight in his roofing bussiness Thornton Roofing / Keighley Roofers , and that he would pay me back in 2 weeks ,foolishly i did thinking he was genuin , then yes excuse after excuse as to why he couldnt see me car trouble ,mum ill ,him ill the list is endless .he is now threatenig me with harrassment as i wont stop asking for my money back .his latest is he will pay the end of this month , i doubt very much . i am a single parent with MS . I think he may be using pof to procure monies from other gullable women . If he has please let me know .

Update: 12/02/2012

I have been in touch with darren and come to an agreement that he will repay me as soon as this is deleted as it has caused him a lot of lost earning apparently .

  • What you’ve said doesn’t surprise me Caroline, BTW I wonder if his wife knows he goes on dating sites? I had him do a re-roofing job four years back, he did a real cowboy job and I had to have it re-roofed again this year after having six leaks. He comes across as a believable smooth talker, I actually thought he’d done a good job at the time. Although I found his persistent sexual come ons towards me real skin crawling, I frankly breathed a sigh of relief when he’d finished and gone.

  • So has Darren got it in for you then? Because he wasn’t thrilled with the online roofing reviews I did, he contacted my workplace several times playing hell with them about it wanting them to get me to take the reviews down and threatened to call the police. Odd way to deal with out-of-pocket unhappy customers.
