Gomes, wanted since December 2021, created several accounts on dating applications such as Tinder, Inner, Happn and Loovo, under the false name of Augusto Keller, according to the Brazilian outlet G1.

“He presents himself as a loving, considerate man, with stories of the absence of a close relative or a heavy workload, a pretext that prevented the victim from being included in his social circle,” said Chief Prosecutor Érika Pucci. ‘However, he held personal meetings, including going to the victims’ residence and meeting their relatives, also gaining his trust.’

Gomes allegedly targeted upper-middle-class women, telling them he worked as an engineer. He would also say that he was the son of German parents who lost their lives in a car accident in Araćatuba, São Paulo.

“I’ve been single for a year,” Gomes’ Tinder profile read. “I joined the app looking for a serious relationship, if you’re looking for sex or fun skip my profile.”

Gomes seriously dated the women and met their family and close friends. Once he had full confidence in him, he would sell them the sad story that he had financial problems with the banks or that he owed back taxes to the Special Department of Federal Revenue of Brazil.

According to Tribuna Online, one of the victims was a teacher who dated Gomes for four months in 2021 and became suspicious when he disappeared with about $28,000.

The woman told investigators she knew something was wrong because Gomes was constantly changing his cell phone.

Gomes never deleted his dating apps and was still active on all of them at the time of his arrest.

Pucci said there could be more victims in addition to the seven who had already come forward.

“The ruse that he uses for his hits is precisely the manipulation of feelings,” Pucci said.
