“She wanted help with getting a briefcase out of some storage place, and the company was closing up. She wanted $2,000 from me. I couldn’t come up with $2,000. The most I could get was $1,500, and I sent it to her in gift cards,” Dean says. “'Miranda' was going to pay me back in checks. I tried cashing them, and that’s how I found out they were fraudulent. I started figuring out that they were scams.”
Dean says now he can’t get Miranda Lambert out of his head. “I guess you could say I was kind of dating her, yeah,” Dean claims. “I am head over heels in love with Miranda Lambert, even now. She’s beautiful, even though I’m married.”
