Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Jules Hannaford was successful and happy in her life and her job, but was still lonely. She turned to online dating as a last resort, after being single for more than a decade. It seemed she was consistently meeting men who were not good enough. One after another, they seemed only to want to swindle her out of her money, and she was getting frustrated.

Finally, she met a man who had his life together. Truman was a successful project manager at a construction firm, and seemed as excited as Jules was about the possibility of building a life with someone special.

Jules travelled across the world to meet him, and the fairy tale immediately began to unravel. All was not as it seemed.

This podcast is an exploration of the world of sweetheart scams, catfishing, and the ugly side of online dating.

Launching October  25th, 2019.

    Introducing Criminal Conduct - A New True Crime Podcast

    Introducing Criminal Conduct - A New True Crime Podcast

    On September 2nd, 2010, 24 year-old Michelle O’Connell broke up with her boyfriend, St. Johns County Sheriff's Deputy, Jeremy Banks. Minutes later, she was dead.

    The St. Johns Sheriff’'s Office quickly ruled the case a suicide, without examining crucial forensic evidence or interviewing any key witnesses. Other official investigations failed to gain traction.

    Her boyfriend, Deputy Jeremy Banks was never charged and is still working as a St. Johns County Sheriff'’s Deputy.

    Years later, an amateur sleuth named Eli Washtock winds up murdered after investigating Michelle O’Connell’s death. What did he find out?

    Criminal Conduct is an investigative true crime podcast series hosted by John Taylor and Javier Leiva. The hosts retrace the footsteps of Eli Washtock, the slain sleuth; picking up the investigation where he left off.

    'Criminal Conduct' will be released in the spring of 2020. Subscribe now on all podcast platforms.

There were so many red flags and it’s up to her to figure out how to learn from these mistakes, heal and move forward. We hear from experts in the field to help us piece together the events and the best ways to grow from them.

    7| Cigarettes Saved My Life

    With a cold, hard dose of reality, Jules has finally realised that she is in danger. She knows that she needs to get out, fast, from this situation that’s dodgy in more ways than one. She needs to get the car back from Truman. He has taken it, but where? Finally, he returns to the hotel and since he now knows any opportunity to further scam her is impossible, he severs connection from her, and he does it violently.
