A serial scammer who swindled thousands of dollars out of women via dating apps has learned his fate.

34-year-old John Hill reportedly pleaded guilty to one count of theft by taking and one count of perjury, and has been sentenced to seven years in prison and 13-months probation, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

You’ll recall, Hill was arrested in May after being accused of scamming an Alpharetta woman he met on Match.com out of more than $80,000.

Hill was able to swindle the money out of the Alpharetta woman after convincing her he was a millionaire and within a week of meeting on the dating site, they agreed to get married. The money he asked her for was intended to go toward the purchase of their first home and for furniture. Once she sent him the funds, POOF! He disappeared.

“The woman said she is in a relationship with the suspect. However, she didn’t know what his profession was,” Gwinnett Cpl. Michele Pihera told WSB. “Also, she said he was only home on weekends. During the week, she didn’t know where he went.”

The woman had no idea Hill was already living in an apartment in Duluth with another woman and a child. Investigators revealed Hill had changed his name more than five times in the past three years and allegedly committed similar crimes in Virginia, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. At the time, it’s unclear if he still faces charges in those states.

Hill has also been ordered to pay the Alpharetta woman $83,500 in restitution and sign over a white BMW that he allegedly purchased with the money he took from her. The judge also prohibited him from ever creating an online dating profile again.

Serves him right. Got to be careful out here ladies.

Do you think his prison sentence was harsh enough?
