Showtime’s ‘Love Fraud’ is more than a mere documentary of an event – it is a four-part series that makes for infuriating, riveting, and sometimes, even hysterical television. Following the story of a charming man who preys on lonely, middle-aged, single women, and then cons them out of their money and dignity, this series is a perfectly constructed piece of visual entertainment that also highlights how a bunch of scorned women turn into bounty hunters to exact revenge from the one man who cheated them. It literally puts the viewers in the backseat of the car that’s hunting this monster. So, here is everything that you need to know about its upcoming second episode.

Love Fraud Episode 1 Recap

Episode 1 of ‘Love Fraud,’ ‘You Just Gotta Trust Me,’ makes it clear that Richard Scott Smith is a prodigious con man. He has no ethical consciousness when he assumes the identity of other men to marry several women, just so he can take everything from them. It shows how he has ripped apart families and destroyed their savings accounts. He has even opened businesses with his victims, all women, assuring them of their future and his love, only to drain them of as much money as possible later on, leaving his partner with an unfathomable amount of debt. At one point, a childhood friend of Richard even spoke about how, when he was younger, he used to get off on juggling multiple girlfriends at the same time, just to see if he could get away with it.

The main focus, though, is on Richard’s relationship with Tracy – a professional working woman and a single mother from Kansas. With her, he uses a fake name, Mickey. The pair met on the internet, and their short courtship, which is a dizzying ride, ends up with a dazzling engagement ring on her finger. However, Tracey’s daughter thinks that their relationship is moving too fast. Wary of Mickey, she decides to break into his truck. There, she finds various legal documents and pill bottles, all with various names. So, she goes home, searches the internet, and finds out that Mickey is, in fact, a con man by the name of Richard. As the truth comes out, many more women come forward, and they all refuse to sit back and stay quiet. And that is how the episode ends.
