(June 25, 2012) For many years rapper Timothy Blair, known as Tim Dog, had an apparent secret way of padding his income. He would use online dating services to woo women, then get them to invest in a “music project” he was working on with promises of returns that never occurred. It seemed like a classic scam. And once Dateline NBC got involved, the scam would be exposed for the world to see.
Dateline NBC created an entire two hour episode called, “The Perfect Catch”, dedicated to how Tim Dog conned women he met via online dating. The episode aired on June 15, 2012. And while Tim Dog maintains his innocence, the women he met online maintain his guilt.
In July 2009, a person named “Justice” made a fraud accusation against Tim Dog on the Ripoff Report Website. Tim Dog responded to that post, saying in part:
“This accusation about Tim Blair is false. The information given about me was manipulated to create a negative image and defame my name, thus attempting to hurt my ability to earn money in my profession which I have spend the last 20 years establishing.”
In the era of the Internet, however, bad news travels fast and more stories started popping up about Tim Dog. Even rap bloggers like Jacky Jasper, started warning people about Tim Dog. The reports had the making of a good story and Dateline NBC jumped on it, using hidden cameras to catch Tim Dog apparently conning yet another woman… and not just for money.
Here are all 11 parts of the Dateline NBC report. Tim Dog speaks in part 11 about the allegations:
