Bill and Dana had been dating for nearly two years when Ann started calling. Bill, six feet tall and 38, with thick brown hair and a rakish smile, told Dana that Ann was just a friend, someone who needed a shoulder to lean on because she was having problems with her boyfriend, a real scumbag.
Plus, he told Dana, there was another, very important reason she didn't have to worry about him cheating with Ann: Ann, Bill said, had told him she had herpes.
"I was like, 'Ooo-kay,'" Dana says now. "I let that one go."
But that story would turn out to be one of Bill Sullivan's many lies. A year later, when Dana figured out that Bill had cheated on her with yet another woman, she says she found Ann's number and called her. Yes, Ann admitted, Bill and she had an affair.
"He's truly a con artist," Dana says now. "This is how he lives his life."
Bill, now 43, denies it. While he admits there may be a few scorned women in his past, he says he lives his life on the up-and-up. A lot of what his ex-girlfriends, ex-wives and ex-co-workers say about him is "absolute garbage."
But others who've known or dated Bill over the years also say he's deceitful. Bill, they say, lies about having affairs and about having college degrees. He lies about things as small as his golf-club membership and as big as his bank accounts. In 1998, investigators caught Bill in a real whopper: He'd embezzled close to $1 million from a Denver DVD and laser disc distribution company, draining the startup's coffers so completely that it went out of business at what should have been the peak of its success.
Bill pleaded guilty and was sentenced to ten years in prison, but that was reduced to eight years when he apologized to a Denver District Court judge in the spring of 2000.
He called the embezzlement "a terrible act" and said he didn't realize how far it had gone until he was caught. He said he was sorry, and that a compulsion to impress his wealthy father by living a lavish lifestyle despite his $35,000 salary drove him to steal. He promised to repay the debt, which totaled $1.8 million with punitive damages.
"I am convinced that I would not be a danger again," he wrote in a letter to the court a mere day after pleading guilty to a Class 3 felony.
But Bill was lying again.
Five women who met Bill after he was released from prison — he ended up serving just under two years — say their lives are worse for having dated him. And each one can rattle off a list of other women he has seduced and conned, too. They say he used the same pattern to borrow money from them and use their good credit to finance pricey cars and live the high life, eventually sending one of them into bankruptcy.
In the meantime, Bill has managed to dodge his former employer's attempts to collect the money he stole, and now claims he will never pay off the debt.
"He's the master of screwing people," one ex-girlfriend says.
But Bill's screwing may soon come to an end — at least if a group of his exes has its way. The women were introduced by a mutual friend who has never met Bill but has listened to horror stories about him for years. For two months now, the group has been attempting to warn his new girlfriends against him before they get in too deep.
Their strategy works like this: One woman who is still friends with Bill — they've nicknamed her "the mole" — pumps him for information about who he's dating. Then the mutual friend finds the women on Facebook and contacts them. She tells them to stay away from Bill and offers old articles from the Rocky Mountain News, including one titled "Accountant Sentenced to 10 Years in Fraud Case."
The name of their game: Operation Cock Block.
In mid-1994, Bill was hired at Lumivision Corporation, a then-six-year-old Denver company that distributed laser discs, the precursors to DVDs.
The company was the brainchild of Jamie White, a native Coloradan with a love of theater who started it in 1988. Lumivision specialized in buying the rights to "special-interest, esoteric, art house-type films" and then paying firms like Pioneer or Sony to make those films into laser discs. The discs would be shipped to Lumivision, which would then sell them to retailers like Tower Records.
Bill, then in his late twenties, came on as the growing company's second bookkeeper, and he seemed like an amiable guy. He was hired through a recruiting agency, and his resumé listed a degree in accounting. White says "he had the right background, as far as I could tell." (The University of Denver, however, where Bill says he earned his bachelor's degree, says it has no record of an alumnus named William P. Sullivan.)
Tim Miller, who worked at Lumivision from 1990 until it went under in 1998, says Bill was friendly and seemed competent at his job. He also appeared to have a lot of money. While Lumivision's other employees wore shorts and sweatshirts to work, Bill always dressed sharply in pressed jeans, collared shirts and Rolexes. His money seemed to come from his family. Miller says Bill told him he was related to Paul Revere and that his family received a cut of the profits from Revere cookware. Miller says he had no reason not to believe him. He certainly looked and acted the part. Soon after Bill began working at Lumivision, he traded his 1991 Honda Accord for a Mercedes.
Sullivan in the news again....
Here is Bill's "new and improved" profile on Match.com - He is such a "catch!" golfguynow on match I'm a witty, affectionate and a confident 45 year old man who has been happily single for a while now. I’ve realized that I’ve been missing something in my life and I want to change that. I’m not a bar fly or a “Ricco Suave”. I’ve been there, done that. I’m not interested in dating a harem of women. I am a loyal and respectful person that doesn't play games or enjoy drama. I enjoy the simpler things life has to offer, a good conversation over dinner with a glass of wine, long walks, checking out the local art galleries or sporting events. I keep busy with work and I absolutely love what I do. I also occupy much of my time with my hobbies and friends. I am very passionate, whether it is with someone I'm dating, work, hobbies, sports, family, or friends. I am proud of who I am, where I come from, and where I am going. I take myself very seriously at work, but I love to have a good time when I'm off (I hope you can gather that from some of my photos). My job can be stressful, but I try to leave it at work as much as possible. My ideal night out would be hanging out with friends over drinks and dinner with lots of laughter. I love to laugh, to make people laugh, and to laugh along with them. I am a very active person and am looking for someone to be active with. My passions are golf, mountain biking , travel, scuba diving and skiing and I would like to find someone who also enjoy these activities as well or would at least be willing to try them. At this stage of my life, I'm looking for an easy, fun, passionate and interesting relationship. I'm looking for chemistry (passion, attraction, etc.) and someone I can't wait to see again. Intelligence, confidence, loyalty, trustworthy and independence are qualities I admire greatly. I desire a relationship with a woman who is compassionate and someone who knows how to openly share and communicate and will work toward building a relationship with her best friend in life. I want you to enjoy what you do and work hard to do it well. I desire a woman who takes pride in the things she does and would like to share them with me. If this sounds like you, please drop me a line and I would love to get to know you. Thanks for looking and good luck with your search.

What is Love Fraud...http://www.lovefraud.com/blog/...
His place is not up for sell. It will be hard to sell due to a stupid floor plan. I really hope he moves out of state. Has his ex wife seen this article? Is she nuts or desperate?
Have you heard?? Bill is getting back together with his first ex-wife, Ruby Sullivan!They spent the 4th of July weekend together. Is she moving back to Denver for him, or will he move to San Diego to be with her. Sorry local girls...you're getting bumped
'At least we can spot wild animals. When it comes to “wild humans” – sociopaths – they, unfortunately look just like we do. So we become captivated by their behavior, feel sorry for them, want to help them, want to be nice to them – and then are shocked when they turn on us. We weren’t doing something stupid, like feeding squirrels. We were engaging in normal human behavior with someone who seemed to be likable. We need to be educated to stop encouraging the wild humans the minute we see aggressive behavior. Unfortunately, we’re educated to “give people another chance.” The sociopaths, of course, are fine with that. All they want is the handout.' LISTEN UP JACKIE AND KIANNE. http://www.lovefraud.com/blog/...
... is over. http://www.facebook.com/home.p...
Hiding behind your middle name, Bill? You are going by 'Porter Sullivan' on facebook now? When women google you they will still find you online, Bill, William P., and Porter Sullivan. So stupid!
It's all for the game of it, right Bill? You can relate. Even for those that have already been warned. http://www.lovefraud.com/blog/...
Bill and his famous CFO buddies:
Her situation is very sad. She must really believe if she waits long enough while supporting him financially doing whatever he says she will eventually get a marriage proposal out of him. You have to have a little sympathy for her.
yes she is still around. And still "dating" Bill. I am not sure dating is the right term for it but whatever!
>>>EXCUSE ME....... 11 months ago
Okay, this is the last comment because this is going no where. Public records are correct and they are 10 years old, you airhead! There ARE no judgments outstanding whatsoever and you have done NOTHING to prove this fact incorrect. Your silly comments are the reflections of an individual(s) who no longer have any purpose other then to cling together in some vain hope that anyone cares.
UPDATE: As of today Colorado Finance Fraud Department has a case with Bill's name on it ....
>>>Bet you wish you could afford a boob job! On second thought, it wouldn't help you! They're probably fake already, just like the rest of you! Who's laughing now, you sorry excuse for a woman!
UPDATE: Cost of Bill's boob job - 7,5K
Bye bye Billy!! You'll look good in bright orange:
Takes him only couple of weeks to talk about marriage, life together etc.What a joke! Maybe bride should rush - Billy boy might go back to Canyon City
No kidding! She is a territorial bitch. Will be waiting for this proposal forever! BUT she is good to have around - free place to stay in Aspen, all inclusive weekends in the mountains etc etc. I would not feel sorry for her. Naive is one - stupid is a different story
Not a fake. Bill was kicked off the site. Just like match, eharmony etc. Apparently plenty of fish doesn't want a convicted felon con man on their site.
@guest You have no idea the woman you had. You pay her $6,000.00 that you owe her as a single mother. When you needed her she was always there. Be a man not a little boy, as it shows on your page that you are a little child.
Wasn't a fake. He continues to posts ads on these sites and changes his ID often so it is harder to find him. Saw him out a couple of weeks ago. He's not looking good and neither was his date. Karma!
