Bob was her last known boyfriend and almost her BIGGEST victim. Mair "Marianne Smyth" was actually in the process of drawing up paperwork for Bob to add her name to the title of his two homes!
Thankfully, someone printed out my blog and showed it to him and when he brought it home to confront Mair "Marianne Smyth" (who was staying at his house for a few days) she didn't say a word, ran out of the house and never came back.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Mair "Marianne Smyth" met Bob on Tinder in late 2016. On their 1st date, after Bob confided that he was in a custody battle with his ex-wife over his kids… Mair told him, as luck would have it, her day job was as a “730 expert” which is a court appointed child custody investigator. And she offered to help Bob get a better custody arrangement with his kids. Which of course was lie. In reality Mair was a Con Artist working as a Psychic for a company she created called "Orchid Psychics". Here's her yelp page:
So like all professional con artists do, she offered to "help" her next victim Bob from the very beginning in an effort to engender trust. And it worked like a charm.
Soon Bob started receiving text messages from “Heba Matta” an attorney that was supposedly working with Mair "Marianne Smyth" to help Bob with his custody situation. Turns out… Mair was using a google number to impersonate Heba Matta, who is actually a real District Attorney in Los Angeles and the sister of a former client of Mair’s Orchid Psychic business, so that's how she knew just enough to impersonate her.
This is the California State Bar's website showing that Heba Matta is actually a real person that Mair was impersonating to Bob.
Wouldn’t you know, Heba claims via text (and Mair "Marianne Smyth" corroborates in person) that they have found a ton of dirt on Bob’s ex-wife. Mair posing as Heba via text claims to have tapped the ex-wife’s cell phone and is doing intense surveillance on her. Mair and Heba via text tell Bob his ex-wife is running a BDSM sex club out of her house while Bob’s kids are in the next room and a ton of other crazy stuff. Bob is alarmed but pleased at the thought of getting full custody of his kids and rescuing them from that sex club house. Of course this was all a story Mair created to get closer to Bob. And it worked.
Mair "Marianne Smyth" knew Bob and his son were huge hockey fans so she told him her good friend is Garth Snow, the GM of the New York Islanders. Mair would show Bob text messages from Garth to prove it. And eventually Bob started getting text messages from Garth too. Bob was pretty disappointed when Garth, who was supposed to meet him at his church one day… never showed. Something came up. Something always came up. Something always does when you’re dealing with a figment of Mair’s imagination. Bob realized It was Mair who was impersonating Garth Snow via texts and emails the whole time.
Mair "Marianne Smyth" then tells Bob about her wealthy Irish family and a $25 million inheritance she’s going to receive soon. And Bob, like the other people she scammed, believed her. Why wouldn't he? One day Mair shows Bob a $12 million house she says she’s going to buy with her inheritance money. She says she wants to put Bob’s name on the title and co-own it with him. She contracted a realtor and actually looked at this mansion, which has since sold to a real buyer, multiple times with Bob. She even ordered a home inspection and was about the go into escrow because her 25 million dollar inheritance was coming any day.
For the record, Mair "Marianne Smyth" is not from Ireland. She was born in Bangor, Maine and grew up in Tennessee. There is no wealthy Irish family and there is no 25 million dollar inheritance. But she cleverly convinced Bob there was and that she'll be receiving her 25 million dollar inheritance any day now and that she wants to buy a 12 million dollar home and put his name on it because she loves him.
“That’s crazy” Bob says. “If our relationship goes south I’ll own $6 million worth of your home! That’s not right.” Bob says. To which Mair artfully replies “OK. If you put my name on the title of both the homes you own we’ll be even.” So Mair drew up papers and was about to get Bob to add her name to the title of the two homes he owns... when fate intervened.
Bob’s ex-wife was curious about the woman in her ex-husband’s life because Mair was about to formally meet their kids… that’s when his ex-wife found my blog online by googling "Mair Smyth" - printed it out and shared it with Bob... who then came home and confronted Mair.. who then immediately ran out of the house and left without saying a word.
Turns out... Bob was supposed to be the BIG CATCH. Can you imagine if he had put Mair's "Marianne Smyth's" name on the title of the two homes he owns? She would own them too. And he'd have to pay her out to "buy" them back from her.
Sarah was Bob's nanny that "Mair" aka "Marianne Smyth" got fired by telling Bob she's a drunk and a bunch of other crazy made-up stories to paint her as irresponsible and untrustworthy. Smyth wanted Sarah out of the picture so Bob would lean on Smyth to help with his kids so she could better insert herself into his life and take his two homes in Newport Beach. Sarah took care of those children since they were babies and being fired devastated her. Smyth then "hired" Sarah as an apprentice to her life coaching scam. And let her listen to her clients' recorded sessions without their consent, unbeknownst to Sarah. Of course Smyth was not really a Psychologist or Therapist. She pretended to be so that she could "treat" patients, get all their personal information and secrets and use to scam them. Also... to get Sarah to move on and not beg for her job back... Mair included ME in her scam. I'm a TV Producer. So Smyth told Sarah I was looking to hire a tutor to be on set for some kid and that it was part of a reality show so she'd be on camera.
Mair "Marianne Smyth" was dating a married Los Angeles politician for a few years. He obviously wishes to remain anonymous. I've spoken to him numerous times. Even double dated with him and Smyth before either I or he knew we were getting conned. Early in their relationship he confided in Mair that he once had a crazy mistress named Jen years before.
So right when he was running for re-election, Mair "Marianne Smyth" impersonated this crazy mistress named Jen using fake email accounts and texts from fake google phone numbers threatening to go public with their past affair to destroy the married politician's chances of winning his election. So Mair "Marianne Smyth" pretending to be a supportive girlfriend, agreed to "help" her married politician boyfriend by hand delivering $50,000 in cash to this past mistress as hush money in another state and get a non-disclosure agreement signed by Jen the former mistress.
The politician later found out that it was Mair "Marianne Smyth" impersonating former mistress Jen all along and shortly there after he dumped her. But he never reported it to police. He is, after all, a married man with a wife, family and political career to protect. And that's how she keeps getting away with her scams. FYI... that nondisclosure agreement is null and void because the real "Jen" never actually signed it. Only the fake "Jen" aka Marianne Smyth, who at that point had an extra $50,000 cash to spend on expensive plastic surgeries that left her arms, legs and stomach scared, rippled and gross. Karma? Maybe a little.
Marianne Smyth impersoaned a psychologist and scammed Heather into taking expensive Life Coaching sessions from her. Smyth then tricked Heather into believing the guy she was in love with was also taking life coaching classes from her! Smyth impersonated this guy using Google Voice numbers and fake email accounts and made Heather believe that if she just kept buying more life coaching sessions, Smyth would broker a romance between them. $10,000 later, Heather realized it was a scam. She was devastated and embarrassed. I identified with Heather. I would also have moved Heaven and Earth to be with the one I love. Smyth is a master manipulator of human emotion. And she's as heartless as she is shameless.
At one point Mair claimed to be dating her version of Big (Sex and the City references anyone?) for nine years. But I interviewed Big at length, he wants to conceal his identity, and Big only knew Mair "Marianne Smyth" for 4 years. Big eventually wanted nothing to do with her after he discovered all the text messages and e-mails he was supposedly receiving from her "wealthy family" in Ireland dangling a lucrative job offer that never seemed to pan out were actually coming from fake google voice accounts and fake e-mail accounts that Mair created. By then she had scammed 21K from him... most of it going to repair a roof on one of her many estates in Ireland. Which was another lie Mair invented. Big would later learn Mair wasn't even from Ireland. She was born in Bangor, Maine. During their association, Mair told Big she was good friends with Jennifer Aniston, and showed him text messages from Jennifer to prove it... a story she would use again and again with other victims.
Mair "Marianne Smyth" told the guy she was dating for a couple months, Chris, that she was good friends with Jennifer Aniston too. And she'd show him text messages from Aniston to prove it. Since Chris worked in TV Production Mair was telling him Jennifer freaking Aniston was interested in working with him. It was great bait to be sure. But Chris eventually figured out those Jennifer Aniston text messages were actually coming from a Google Voice account that Mair herself created to text HERSELF as Jennifer Aniston. Then he dumped her. He figured it was a major red flag. BOY DID HE DODGE A BULLET. Smyth's con in this case never got off the ground.
Mair "Marianne Smyth", met Jonathan on Tinder. He's a well to do businessman in LA. At one point, Mair, using another Google phone number, impersonated a client of hers, a Studio Exec, who worked at a big movie studio here in LA to try and get Jonathan, the wealthy guy she was dating to pay $15,000 for some tickets to a major awards show. His young daughter really wanted to go this star-studded awards show. And he was going to surprise her with tickets. The Studio Exec had no idea Mair was doing this. She has since hired a lawyer and is pursuing a case against Mair for impersonating her. Jonathan never actually handed over the $15,000. He got a weird feeling about it at the last second and changed his mind. But then, Mair, pretending to be The Studio Exec via text sent a lot of lewd sexual advances to Jonathan to create drama. When The Studio Exec found this out she was FURIOUS.
Robert was dating Mair "Marianne Smyth" for a few months then dumped her after he discovered she was using Google Phone Numbers to text him and other people in his life to cause drama. He would then see her in his neighborhood at all hours stalking him, putting chicken bones in his mailbox as part of some "spell" she was casting to get him back. So Robert filed a restraining order. After he dumped her all his drama went away.
Mair "Marianne Smyth" dated Michael for a few months on the cusp of 2016-2017. He's of Irish descent. And Mair convinced him she was dying of cancer and needed his help to take over her multimillion dollar trust in Ireland so he could take care of her daughter financially after she dies. Her cousin Fintan was arranging a trip to Ireland to meet Michael. Of course it was actually Mair emailing and texting Michael pretending to be "Fintan". At some point Michael got suspicious and dumped her. Then one of Fintan's hired guns (another character Smyth impersonated via text) told Michael that Smyth had died. LOL. Before her death she was pressuring Michael to send her his legal name and SS# etc. so she could help him get a passport to travel to Ireland. With Smyth's history of applying for credit cards in people's names and charging up thousands... it's a good thing Michael didn't give her any info.
PACIFIC ISLANDS TRAVEL
Marianne Smyth sold luxury vacations at Pacific Islands Travel for a couple years. She cleverly created a personal PayPal account using the words "Pacific Islands" in the name and took customer's vacation payments into her personal bank account. She eventually got busted by the cops and was convicted in a Los Angels courtroom for stealing close to $200,000 over 2 years. COURT RECORDS HERE
