TikToker Sami Oliveri, a.k.a. @guts_and_glory13, called out a guy with whom she matched on Bumble.
He claimed he had to cancel their rendezvous due to an alleged car accident.
But she was not fooled when he provided a Google image of a car wreck as his proof.
“Single life in Tampa be like..” she wrote in the caption for the now-viral TikTok video.
The clip started with a screenshot of the guy flexing his biceps in a mirror selfie with his face obscured.
The overlaying text read:
“Had a date planned with this guy I matched with on Bumble…”
“He then texted me almost an hour before the date and said he got into a CAR ACCIDENT !!”
The following screenshot showed their text exchanges in which she asked him if he was okay after hearing about his supposed misfortune.
He wrote back, “My neck and back hurts and think I have a confusion," and immediately followed up with the typo correction, "concussion."
"I’m glad you’re okay!!!!" wrote Oliveri, and added, "Let me see the damage to the car!”
He obliged by sending a photo of what appeared to be a wrecked white Chevrolet Camaro. "I’m so upset and I’m on the phone with my insurance,” he replied.
Oliveri continued in her text overlay:
"Even sent me the picture. And then I found this."
What she shared next was the very image he had sent her that came up after she googled “Camaro car crash.” However, the picture was taken from a car accident in Utah back in 2018.
The clip ended with her asking for help. "Tiktok! I need your help! I caught him in the act.. what should I do next?” she said in the text overlay.
Users shared their suggestions.
Other users shared their hunches about the romantic U-turn.
Another TikToker commiserated with her about the toxic dating scene that is Tampa, to which Oliveri replied:
And when a user asked why she would do a reverse Google search for the car wreck and called the endeavor, "so strange," Oliveri wrote back:
“Just have to be careful out there. Never know who you are dealing with."
"Totally normal to check and see if he was telling the truth or not.”
