On Thursday, 37-year-old Wilson Edward Jackson, of Woodland Hills was arrested on suspicion of slew of charges over allegations that he’d been scamming women, leaving most of them heart-broken and broke.
According to KTLA, Los Angeles officials arrested Jackson, as he appeared in court for an unrelated charge, for identity theft, forgery, grand theft and more after police said he finessed multiple women out of money after meeting them on dating apps under the name “Sincere” or “Da Truth. In fact, in a written statement, police said the alleged crimes took place over the last several years in L.A., and other cities and states, including Florida.
“After meeting with his victims, Jackson would ask them for a loan, claiming he was having issues with his bank, or that his car was impounded with his wallet inside,” police explained in a written statement, adding that Jackson would repay the women with checks written on closed accounts. In other instances, when women went to Jackson’s home, he reportedly “stole their credit card information and checks from their checkbooks while they slept or used the restroom.”
“Jackson would use their stolen information to buy clothes for himself, pay personal bills, or make travel arrangements for other victims of his scams,” police added.
Now, upon Jackson’s arrest, officials are asking any other victims to come forward with additional information.
