Miess as an owner of Great Expectations franchises but Citysearch doesn't allow links in reviews.
However if you enter "Michael Miess" and "dating scam" into goggle you will find links to a news story from Tenn naming him as the owner of a Great Expectations franchise involved with claims of fraud and you will also find a Democratic Underground post which cites a Consumer Affairs post entry from "Melissa" of Round Rock in 08, naming him as the owner of Great Expectations.
