Over a period of 2+ years, with different email addresses? A woman scorned may well have fury greater than hell but would just post straight from the heart, rather than create aliases to say the same thing.

Sorry, but it doesn't figure to me that one person would go to that extent whereas it makes perfect sense, reading about the man, to see that different women, similarly mistreated, would do so.

We'll just have to see what turns up in the next few years then I guess. Anyways, as mods can you not email the people directly to enquire as to the veracity of the allegations, after all having them unsubstantiated on an open forum could cause problems.

It seems even more strange to me that 3 different women would register within a couple of months of each other almost two years ago, and then all post for the first time today.

But as I said, just my suspicious mind......

I have not registered previously under different user name, I was not even aware of any of this information until march 2013. I did not meet Andrew until January 2013, when I googled Andrew Gilleard nothing came up. My reasons for posting were to provide information about Andrew Gilleard/Moorhouse to hopefully prevent anyone else being conned by this man. I have contacted some of the other people personally and been provided with information which all ties in with my experiences. He is also known to the police. I totally agree that there is a fine line between providing information for public interest and slander. If it was untrue he would have just cause to get any information removed and would be very easy with the connections he claims to have!

Good Morning to all who are interested,

I too, like Newbie 2013 have very recently had the dubious pleasure of Andrew, he contacted me on a dating website a couple of weeks ago using Lohtse as his profile name. After a few days of (very gentlemanly) messages he offered his phone number and since Thursday we have been texting and have spoken a couple of times, I was fed the same lies as Newbie (and god knows how many others!) regarding the Military/SAR etc, etc, etc. He went into extaordinary detail and seemed very knowledgeable about Mountain Rescue/SAR. Over this weekend I was a hares whisker away from picking him up to go caving somewhere in Sheffield that he suggested (I have googled it and cannot find ANYTHING!). Because I thought he was a member of MRT and had 'everything that I would need' at no time did I feel that I could be in any danger and I suspect this is the case with others he may have lied to. Over the weekend he had some 'call outs' and 'had to go to base' which as a MRTL I would expect, I have since tried to find info on these events on various MRT websites/Facebook but alas nothing.... Only on Sunday night he texted saying that he had been providing First Aid and Safety Cover at Sheffield Film Festival, my first thought was what safety cover could possibly be needed to watch films??? Call it female intuition but that was when I really started to smell a rat....I searched the internet for the said Film Festival, the only ones I could find happened in Spring 2013 and the next is scheduled for Spring 2014 (looks good though!) I did yesterday however find out that he was on Sheffield Forum (username Lohtse) and had joined the Sheffield Shamblers a few years ago, there seemed to be something 'interesting' going on there, let's put it this way you could sense the friction (could Andrew have 'fanned the flames???').
I was all set to give Andrew the benefit of the doubt but there was a niggle at the back of my mind that just wouldn't go away so last night while on cooking duty armed with a glass of red I typed in my search bar Andrew Lohtse Mountain Rescue Team Leader Sheffield (I didn't know his surname)and stumbled upon this site THANK GOD!!!
I stayed up way past my usual bedtime to read all the 7 pages plus about this topic and can see both sides of the arguement, as a female who almost put her trust in him thinking that he had all the skills and safety awareness (beleive me he sounds very convincing, polite, friendly, knowledgeable etc,etc,etc) because he was very good at saying he'd been 'called on duty/had to go to 'base' and had all the answers to my questions. PLEASE DO NOT CLOSE THIS TOPIC DOWN it is the ONLY source of info on this 'gentleman' and people need to know. As I have said I took the time to read ALL the posts on here about this man, I can see all sides and have made my mind up if he is Hero or Villain. I know that he has done nothing illegal BUT he is befriending people based on lies about his involvement with a very, very worthwhile and respected organisation. As I am someone who has raised money for Mountain Rescue (I have a friend who was in RPMRT in Lancashire) I find it very hard to swallow....
For all those who wish for this topic to be closed ask yourself this...Would you want your daughter, sister, grandaughter etc,etc,etc coming into contact with this man? I know I have to take resposability for my own actions but I'm the kind of person who always tries to see the good in the world, now I feel very foolish indeed.
For anyone who wants to know he is on POF username Lohtse, his profile is very, very good and sadly he will dupe many more women....
As my last contact with him was only yesterday I still have his phone number, he gave me his address on Saturday (if it's the right one) and I will be keeping this should any authorities need it at a later date. I will of course contact the dating site to warn of his dishonesty but sadly there isn't a lot that they can do, after all it's not a crime.....

Thank you to everyone who has contributed, I have a clearer picture now.

Its not a crime until his recklessness puts someone in danger (as it already has done), so I would argue it is!
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Hi Alex, I'm not sure what he did to put someone in danger, I can see that there are references to it on here but nothing specific is jumping out at me.

I'd be very grateful if someone could enlighten me as some of the messages on the Sheffield Forum (Shamblers Walks) spoke quite highly of him so I'm confused to say the least!

I have an update also, he has been in contact with me today offering to meet up (Peak District Area), I haven't said 'no' yet incase anyone one here fancies coming along as a chaperone to see for themselves what lies (or not) he can offer.

Again many thanks

Thanks Antwan, it's a little clearer now! I wonder what he's done to warrant the interest of the Police? Now I really do have shivers up my spine, I feel slightly sick at the thought of what I could have let myself in for. Thankfully I have only been in telephone contact with him for less than a week and I've had no harm done (God only knows what may have happened!)

Someone (?) has created a Facebook page for Andrew Moorhouse

Might be worth putting the latest info on there, just to be helpful.

Thanks Chris and others who have taken the time and trouble to keep ensuring that people like myself are put in the true picture. Very much
appreciated, sadly it is only a matter of time before something goes seriously wrong with this guy and we will all be reading about him in the papers!

Just literally found out he has history on the UK Climbing website too but I haven't started digging yet, watch this space....

To Bograt, I would be happy to try to set up a meet for you with him (unless he's rumbled that I'm on to him) Just say the word and I will give it my best shot! (no pun intended!)

Hi,

Like both Newbie2013 and Rose I have today been shown this site by my sister. I have basically been fed the same lines as Rose, down to the Sheffield film festival (which is where I actually met him). He comes across as pleasant, caring etc and despite my doubts about the army, believable.


It's good that this site is here, but I feel people should know he told me his surname was 'Spencer'

It`s a windup.
It`s happened several times in the last few years.
Someone (else) has spotted that 
a. the concentration span of the average contributor on this forum is quite short
b. not many people bother to read all the posts on a thread before replying
and has decided that now is the time to have a bit more fun.

This news story concerns Andrew Moorhouse

https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/concern-for-welfare-of-missing-sheffield-man-1-9497202

A police search is underway for a man who went missing from Sheffield this morning. Andrew Marshall, aged 46, was last seen around 7:45am this morning, Monday December 17, in the Loxley area of Sheffield.

He also goes by the surname Moorhouse.

AH, I see he has reared his ugly head again, this time with another alias, Marshall.

Further to the above, he apparently went missing last week as well, before being traced on the 15th December, before doing a bunk again. Perhaps the police could be persuaded to drop him off somewhere a little more secure?
