South Haven model shows a different side of romance scams | #datingscams | #lovescams | #facebookscams

Tom Ernsting radiates the kind of handsome silver-fox good looks of a character right off the Hallmark Channel, just the sort of guy that plenty of women would love to meet.

Unfortunately, Ernsting has heard from way too many scorned women.

“They scream at me and they yell at me for ruining their lives,” said Ernsting, 60, who has a summer home in South Haven and spends the winter in Naples, Florida.

“The stories I’ve heard are insane.” 

One woman claims she handed over her credit card information to him and then he racked up $30,000 in charges.

Others were upset that they sent him $500 to help him get across the border into the United States so that he could travel to see them but he never showed up. Some claim they lost money after they put cash on Apple iTunes gift cards to send to him. 

“It’s just crazy,” Ernsting said. “It definitely took off during COVID because I think people were even more desperate and more lonely. 

“It’s sad because they fall in love with me.” 

Ernsting, who has worked as a professional model, says he did not reach out to these women via social media or dating apps and he doesn’t have their money.
