Woman Steals A Blank Check From A Guy She Went On A First Date With To Pay $4,000 In Back Rent

Talk about the worst first date over. According to, a New Jersey woman went on a first date with a guy and while her date was busy trying to get to know her (and planning a way to take her home), she was trying to figure out how she was going to steal $4,000 from him…

The woman, 46-year-old Tonia Dolison met her date, a 62-year-old man whose name wasn’t made known, through an online dating site. They met up for dinner during the middle of November, and according to SILive, the date progressed from a restaurant to back to the man’s home. They had drinks, watched some movies, and Dolison stayed overnight. Sounds like a good date, right?


What the man didn’t realize was that while she was getting cozy in his home, she saw a checkbook of his on a table, and ripped out a check. Soon after he dropped her off at home the next day, she used the check to pay her past due rent, which was $4,000. Here’s what she told police in their report, which SILive shared:

“I noticed he had a blank check on the table so I just grab the first check from the book. I then made the check out to my landlord and gave it to him. I did it because I was about to be locked out of the apartment. I signed and made out the check.”

No word on if Dolison actually was feeling the guy she stole from or if she was just using him all along (I’ll assume the latter is the deal), but she has been charged this week with “third- and fourth-degree grand larceny, second-degree forgery and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.”

Online dating…it always gets a bad rap from foolery like this. What do you make of this crazy story?

Fellas, and some of you ladies out there, you only have one shot to make a good first impression. After you finally work up the nerve to ask that special lady out for the very first time, here are some suggestions on where not to take her.

Red Lobster pf

Red Lobster

Although, after all these years, their cheddar bay biscuits are still to die for and the prices of entrees can go upwards of $20 or more, taking that special someone to Red Lobster for the first date isn’t recommended. Sure, twice a year they offer their infamous lobster fest complete with numerous platters of the crustacean cooked in different ways for a limited time only but if you really want to impress your date, taking her to the same place she celebrated graduating from high school is no-no.
