There's a phrase when it comes to dating that goes something like, "A man is worried about whether he wants to get laid or not, a woman is worried whether she's going to get murdered or not," and there's plenty of truth in the phrase. Woman don't think this will happen on every, date but as females, we try to stay hyper-vigilant.
And in a world of modern dating, where dating apps are the norm, it's harder to trust people than ever before.
But you do assume that a man that you've been seeing for a while wouldn't, we don't know, steal your Range Rover.
Who scammed Jennifer Williams from ‘Basketball Wives’?
That would be Jennifer's former boyfriend, Aaron Nichols. Jennifer actually put Aaron on blast on Instagram after the event happened in April 2020. She used her platform to try and find him captioning, "I’m asking for some help finding my Range Rover that this man, Aaron Nichols, stole from me. He goes by many aliases including Nick, Daniel, or Chris."
The caption continues, "He has conned many women and men too out of vehicles and large amounts of cash. Lives in the Atlanta area and frequents Detriot, Houston, and Vegas."
The entire scam is retold in the new VH1 limited, docu-series, My True Scam Story, but Jennifer actually spilled some of the tea on the radio with Atlanta V-103.
Jennifer said that the police weren't doing anything about her stolen vehicle at the time, which is why she decided to make the post. Once she put up the post, "an astronomical amount of people were sending me DMs that this man had done something similar. He had stolen their car, money."
Jennifer elaborates that at the time that the car was stolen, she and Aaron weren't dating, but they were still friends. Jennifer had been in the process of buying a house and there were issues with closing. She had to go out of town and so Aaron offered for her to put the Range Rover in his garage.
My True Scam Story not only chronicles Jennifer's story, but other people's interactions with Aaron as well. It turns out that he has scammed an enormous amount of people for the past two decades.
