Millionaire Matchmaker’s Patti Stanger brags about her elite dating service that attempts to match some of the richest people in the world. But apparently she messed up with Adam Winters, who is apparently broke and is now pleading guilty to charges of attempting to extort $5 million from a federal nuclear facility. To top it all off, Winters even claims he never saw the woman he matched with after the Valentine’s Day-themed show was finished.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, even though the Millionaire Matchmaker star hooks up plenty of others, she had to turn to Plenty Of Fish to find out a boyfriend of her own. The controversy does not end there because when Stanger tackled homosexuality, some people thought she might be homophobic based upon her response, and interestingly enough, she does not believe the “B” in LGBTQ does not exist since she denies the existence of bisexual men.
In the case of Adam Winters, when Stanger put him on Millionaire Matchmaker, the man represented himself as having a net worth of over $1 million and supposedly had a job as a CEO in Beverly Hills. In reality, it seems he’s not in the millionaires club since he “does not have the fund to retain an attorney,” and he was given a court-appointed lawyer. He also currently lives in a one bedroom South Crescent Drive apartment complex. His companies include Green Technology Transport, which delivered cargo via a modified Toyota Prius, and Shipey, an app that helps deliver and ship items.
Winters was charged with the federal felony of attempting to extort money through interstate communication in an email sent to the company that manages the Y-12 National Security Complex, a Department of Energy facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, that produces and refurbishes nuclear weapons components and stores nuclear material. To give you an idea how serious this is, this particular facility was part of the Manhattan Project, and was used to enrich uranium for the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
He was even so brash as to email the FBI and Vice President Joe Biden with his threat, which included releasing 1200 slides that included “evidence from testing the bombs, to documentation on how much radiation was used on animals and contamination of the plants. Some pictures of them even building the bombs.” He claimed the slides contained “enough documentation that shows enough evidence where this could win tons and tons of lawsuits if they were to get out.” He then attempted to work out a deal with an undercover agent who eventually arrested him when they met together in person.
Now it’s being reported that Winters”signed a plea agreement filed in U.S. District Court on Monday in which he will plead guilty to a single count of extortion. In a deal brokered between defense attorney Norman McKellar and Assistant U.S. Attorney Brooklyn Sawyers, the government is agreeing to seek a penalty of no more than six months in prison.”
