If anyone knows the whereabouts of Glenn Whitter please come forward. This man needs to be found.
Many more phone calls have been received by the RCMP. Most with shear disbelief that Whitter would do this. Some even asking where he is, and why he has not kept in contact with them. The dollar amount he has scammed from these women is unbelievable!
To date ... we don't know where Whitter is. One woman stated that she received a phone call from Whitter asking to sleep on her couch. Whitter tells these woman that he is down and out due to a woman he lived with from POF charging up his credit cards, stealing his money and clearing out his condo.
Take note that this is NOT TRUE. He was evicted from his condo for non payment of rent. He quickly left with some of his belongings and the RCMP have removed the remainder. If he wishes to reclaim his hockey equipment and whatever else he left behind, then he will have to contact the RCMP.
Only one story has been posted to date on this site, as most of the women are humiliated and embarrassed at what has transpired. Ladies ... if we do not say something then guaranteed Whitter will continue on in scamming more women. This is ALL he knows, this is his ONLY means of income. Who is he with now?
One Victims Story ...
I am sharing my story, and the stories of Glenn Whitter’s other victims, in order to inform current and potential victims on how he works his scheme.
February, 2009 I met cdn_iceman (aka, Glenn Whitter) on POF (Plenty of Fish), an online dating site. When Whitter learned I was a web designer, he started asking questions about building his own dating website.
Whitter let on that he was a Financial Specialist and a Mortgage Broker. Whitter has since been charged by FSCO (Financial Services Commission Ontario) with 18 Mortgage Brokering Offences. He has NO licence and is NOT a Mortgage Broker as he states.
This warning was not on the Internet when I started dealings with Whitter.
I was in the process of a divorce and vulnerable. Whitter seized the opportunity and suggested that I put the house in my name and refinance with him. Whitter started the process for my mortgage under another agent, whom he employed (I have since found out that this was his live in girlfriend of 3 years).
In the interim, Whitter offered me money to help with my finances, of which I declined.
I later realized that borrowing money, paying it back and ‘being helpful’ with finances and real estate is one of his tactics to build your financial trust.
Whitter and I had dated for 5 months. When I requested that the relationship become exclusive, he agreed. However, Whitter broke it off 2 weeks later via a phone call. No reason stated … just that it was ‘him, not me’.
Whitter maintained contact, however, under the guise of ‘business’, employing me to build him 5 websites:
Our relationship then built up as friends and working partners.
When my first mortgage deal closed with Whitter he requested a cheque for $1,850 towards purchasing Royal Bank Shares from one of his clients. According to him … this client needed to unload the stock quickly. I had asked numerous times for the investment to be returned; however it was always met with an excuse.
January 2010 Whitter told me that one of his mortgage deals had gone bad, and blamed the entire fiasco on his Real Estate Agent (past live-in girlfriend). I was told that it was a 2.6 million dollar church deal (with a black minister) that had fallen through. Whitter stated that the paperwork was given to the purchasers Real Estate Agent who altered the % rate to a lower amount. According to Whitter, his Real Estate Agent (live in girlfriend) did not follow up with the paperwork in a timely fashion therefore it was not detected. Whitter stated that he could not supply the altered interest rate, therefore he was he was held liable for the entire transaction.
Whitter stated that he had to sell his house in Cambridge, mortgage his condo in Etobicoke and sell all his RBC shares to repay the deal. He was still short, so he “cried and begged” for me to help him.
Take note … Whitter owns NO home in Cambridge, and does NOT own a Condo. He has since been evicted from the Condo for non-payment of his rent.
Presently his whereabouts are unknown.
Whiter then arranged for another mortgage refinance on my property, and made arrangements to pay back the money monthly.
When I queried his Real Estate Agent (former live in girlfriend) about this transaction, she stated that there was no such deal. Apparently she left due to the shady dealings he was involved in, along with mention of domestic violence.
FSCO informed me that Whitter had given out 2 second mortgages on my property to one of his other clients. This was done without my knowledge, whereby he had forged my signature and pocketed the money.
Whitter has been operating a “Ponzi Scheme”:
A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation that pays returns to its investors from their own money or the money paid by subsequent investors, rather than from profit earned by the individual or organization running the operation. The Ponzi scheme usually entices new investors by offering higher returns than other investments, in the form of short-term returns that are either abnormally high or unusually consistent. Perpetuation of the high returns requires an ever-increasing flow of money from new investors to keep the scheme going.
In 2003, Whitter had defrauded an elderly woman out of $245,000. Charges were laid. Whitter DID NOT attend either of his last court dates, therefore a Warrant has been issued for his arrest. Whitter was given 10 years to repay this senior. It is believed that the money I mortgaged has gone to repay the $165,000 scammed from this senior, leaving $80,000 still outstanding. Whitter learned from that case where he left a paper trail. Since that time he evolved to where he trolled for women on social media, particularly POF to befriend them and do what it would take to gain their trust and eventually receive money from them.
There is far more to the story, which will be made available in time.
This website will be kept active, however under the domain names of
www.glennwhitter.com and www.glennwhitter.ca with updates as they become available.
To date there have been over 30 women who have notified the RCMP, with a total of over $500,000 scammed.

Let’s pray that justice prevails, and NO MORE women have to financially suffer under this man’s shenanigans.
Whitter needs to be STOPPED, AND pay the price for his wrong doings. Incarceration is justice.
