Have you had a bad experience with online dating? Read our client’s story that we placed in The Sun this week. If you have a similar story (or any other story) get in touch with us today.
When 44-year-old Jane Putt from Cornwall met Allan via an online dating website Zoosk, she thought she had hit the jackpot.
However, within 10 days of meeting, Allan had moved into Jane’s £600 a month rented home in Bodmin, Cornwall, but paid no rent. While Jane was hard at work as an admin assistant Allan was at home drinking booze on the sofa.
Jane soon realised Allan was an alcoholic, when he was drinking 12-15 bottles of beer a day. When she returned home from work, Allan would drunkenly accuse her of cheating on him with colleagues.
One month after he moved in, Allan attacked her in a booze-filled jealous rage, lunging for her throat, shoving her against the wall and calling her a “cheating slag who was shagging around”.
Terrified Jane managed to call the police, but furious Allan forced her out of the front door in her dressing gown and locked the door, shouting that she was a “cheating slapper”. When the police arrived Allan refused to open the door, all Jane could do to get back into her own home was call her landlord for the spare key.
Allan pleaded guilty to assault and criminal damage, and was jailed for eight weeks at Bodmin magistrates’ court.
Jane, says: “Allan and I were supposedly matched on our personality types, and Allan’s profile meant he seemed the perfect man online. I didn’t think twice about letting him move in – I thought it was true love, but you can’t trust someone based on what he put online.
“I will never do online dating again – I was gullible and naive, the perfect culprit for Allan to brainwash and scrounge off.”
Where did we place Jane’s story in the national press?
We placed Jane’s story exclusively with The Sun before placing it on the news wires the day after. This ensured that Jane was paid the maximum fee possible for her story.
Jane’s story was picked up in The Metro and a number of other online national publications. We are now in the process of securing Jane a magazine deal and TV are interested too.
Because we are experts at dealing with the national press, we’ll make sure we sell your story in the correct order – meaning that you get paid the most for your story, and don’t risk losing control of it.
