Erin Colleen, 34, from Washington, D.C., claims she has been cheated a few times throughout the years and decided enough was enough – so is now determined to stop others falling victim to womanizers.
Downloading Tinder to get once again into the dating scene herself, the single mom was stunned to see men transparently promoting themselves as wedded or ‘looking for something discreet’. She took it upon herself to use the investigative skills learned in a career in data mining to track down men’s partners – and expose them.
So far, she has effectively outed five men to their partners and claims that while every lady has been upset, they have been thankful. After one lecher’s wife saw what her husband had been up to, she wrote to Erin and said:
‘I really wish there were more people like you in the world. I’m a nurse who worked 80 hours last week so we could go to Disneyland. Kind of ironic working to go to the most magical place on earth when something like this was going on back at home.’
Erin said: ‘I can’t stand cheaters. I was cheated on [in the past]. It was devastating to learn he’d been doing it right under my nose for years, and that nobody ever said anything to me about it.
She further added: Whenever I see a profile that says ‘married’ or ‘looking for something discreet’, I immediately swipe right to see if I can out the guy. I do this to protect other women. I don’t want any other woman to go through what I went through. Women are starting to really look out for other women, even ones we don’t know, so if you want to cheat you had better expect it to get back to your partner. It’s 2019 now and cheaters can’t hide anymore
A weekend ago, Erin outed two men to their partner after chatting with them over Facebook and Snapchat for various months. During one chat, Erin received x-rated pictures and videos – causing her to fear a man had been secretly filming his partner.
Erin said: ‘This guy messaged me a year ago and had been flirting with me on and off since. I noticed on his Facebook that he had a girlfriend. When I asked him about it he lied and said they broke up but he hadn’t changed his Facebook yet because he got a 30-day ban. I knew that was a lie because he was messaging me through Facebook and you can’t message when you’ve been banned. I messaged the girlfriend and showed her everything. She said he was defending himself saying that I was trying to ruin his life and it wasn’t true. I see right through the men’s excuses.
After a career in data mining, Erin claims she can chase down a cheaters family in as meager as 60 minutes – even if they only use their first name on their profile. On the latest occasion, she had been chatting to one man for a month.
His profile stated: ‘Married but lonely. We both work nights opposite of each other. Looking for something discrete to share my nights with. Watch movies, intimacy etc. I can send pics if requested’.
After he requested that her to go to his home for sex while his children were sleeping, she decided to start digging. Within 60 minutes, Erin had tracked down the man’s mother and wife – who ‘couldn’t thank her enough’.
Erin said: ‘I have been on Tinder for two years. ‘I met this guy about a month ago, he added me on Snapchat immediately, and I chatted with him for a bit to be sure he was in fact a cheater. This guy’s profile, as you can see, says he’s married. He added me on Snapchat and asked me if I was cool with him being married. I said I didn’t care. Then he invited me to come over to his place to have sex that night because his wife was at work and his kids were asleep. We had only just met a few hours before.
‘I told him I would feel kind of weird with his kids there, and he told me not to worry because they’re deep sleepers. Like, this man was willing to have a stranger come to his home while his children were there to have sex. As soon as my suspicions were confirmed I simply grabbed his name off his Snapchat – he didn’t even think about hiding it – and messaged his wife and mother. I used to do data mining as a job so I’m good at finding people on social media. It took about an hour to find his wife, but I was determined.’
