For a date with a complete stranger, this one looked like it was going pretty well.
But a New Jersey woman is now counting the cost after going home with a man she had met online.
Whatever her intentions were when she invited her match back, she had a nasty surprise when he stole her jewellery and her car.
According to news network WABC-TV, the suspect, who identified himself as Gennaro ‘Gooch’ Aladena, met the victim on dating site OkCupid.
Ominously the site, which takes answers to questions and shows how much of a ‘friend’ and how much of an ‘enemy’ you are with a potential match, rated ‘Gooch’ as 15 per cent enemy.
Given that he made off with her 2007 Toyota Solara, which boasts a personalised numberplate, maybe that rating should have been a little higher.
Reports say the thief is bald, around 5ft 9ins and also goes by the name Mike Rossman.
