  • News
Patrick Giblin's alleged power over women keeps getting him arrested. The former Ventnor resident allegedly used dating sites to meet and con women out of thousands of dollars -- all while on supervised federal release for the a similar scheme that included more than 50 women. The 52-year-old man was in U.S. District Court in Camden on Monday to hear the new charges against him. He i
s now in federal custody. The complaint, which the government claims represents only "sample" of the victims, includes eight women in five states and Canada who lost more than $7,000 to Giblin. His alleged lies included that he owned an oceanfront property in Atlantic City, worked in the casino business and that he needed to borrow money for bills, car repairs and even moving expenses after claiming he would be coming to live where his alleged victim was. The complaint says the latest scheme began December 2012 and lasted for two years, all while Giblin was on supervised release from his previous conviction. He even unlawfully left New Jersey for Colonie, New York, where he continud to receive money until his arrest Dec. 16, 2014. In that original case, he defrauded more than 50 women out of more than $200,000.
