Woman fakes cancer to raise money — is she a do-gooder, or a sociopath?


Editor’s note: The following story and comment were sent by a Lovefraud reader whom we’ll call “Jeri-Lynn.” A well-known woman from West Seattle, Tracy Dart, claimed she battled cancer three times while raising money for the disease. Allegations are that she never had cancer at all.

Local woman may have faked cancer diagnosis, on King5.com.

This a story from my community, which is reeling from the news. Are daily lies which do “good” things like raise $ for cancer research somehow “better” than lies perpetuated by sociopaths to actively hurt their targets?

Who exactly is a potential victim of psychopaths or sociopaths?

Chapter 5
Who is a potential victim?

Everyone is a potential victim of a psychopath. There are two basic reasons why, and my goal in this chapter is to make them clear for you. Why? Because too many people think they can’t be fooled or that they’re too strong to be a victim, and those beliefs put us in danger of being swept away and devastated by a psychopath.

 

Bill Cosby to stand trial for sex assault

Bill Cosby

More than 50 women have accused Comedian Bill Cosby of rape or sexual assault. At least one case is going to trial.

Cosby lost his bid to have his sexual assault case in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, dismissed. Judge Steven T. O’Neill ordered Cosby to return to court on March 8 for a preliminary hearing.

Cosby is accused of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former employee of the Temple University women’s basketball team, in his suburban Philadelphia home, in 2004.

Former District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. decided not to charge Cosby at the time. Castor said he promised not to prosecute Cosby so that the entertainer would give a deposition in Constand’s civil suit.

For Sociopaths, It’s All About Them–Even When You’re Sick

BeingIllPic2.2016

Before I met “Paul,” (the man I married, who I realized about twenty years too late must be a sociopath) I had a friend who may not have known about sociopaths, but she knew to call off her engagement to “Mr. Right” because of a cold and a sandwich.

Make Your Own Damn Sandwich!

Carol was smart, motivated, kind, outgoing, upbeat, and gorgeous. She was clearly a “catch,” and she had come very close to marrying handsome, rich, well-connected “Mr. Right.”

 

People have told the district attorney that my ex is going to kill me and my kids

Spath TalesEditor’s note: Lovefraud received the following story from a reader whom we’ll call “Clara.”

22 years of marriage, 2 kid, 1 adopted son. Boys are now 20, daughter is 17.

My ex has been arrested 6 times and now been charged with stalking and harassment. I now have lifetime no contact and he has 3 years no contact with my kids.

Both of us have very good jobs, beautiful home, well known in our small town. He coached baseball and football so has been looked up to.

According to indictments, fraud runs in the Fattah family


Chaka “Chip” Fattah Jr., of Philadelphia, was sentenced today to five years in prison, and ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution, after being convicted of federal bank and tax fraud last year.

“The evidence [at trial] demonstrated incontrovertibly that Fattah was a habitual schemer, liar, and fraudster, obsessed with wealth and material possessions,” wrote U.S. Attorneys Paul L. Gray and Eric L. Gibson, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Fattah Jr. is the son of U.S Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.), who was indicted last summer on 29 counts, including bribery, bank fraud and other corruption charges.

Is there any way to successfully deliver a warning message that the new conquest will actually hear?

Editor’s note: Lovefraud received the following email from a reader who posts as “FreedomWithNoRing.” Donna Andersen responds below.

I am so thankful for your website. There is so much valuable information there to help with understanding how and why one could get locked in and stay with a sociopath.

I was married to an abusive sociopath for 25 years (I met him when I was 12 years old) and finally found the courage to leave 4 years ago. Divorcing and trying to co-parent with a sociopath is a complete nightmare.

In her emotional victim impact statement, Gail Greaves, the girlfriend, said, “Do you not understand that you are a textbook psychopath? Do you really not understand what you’ve done to me, yourself, your family? You took my choice away.”

How Sociopaths Fool You Into Thinking They’re You’re Friend

Tiger

Chapter 4
Richard Parker Is Not Your Friend

Psychopathic expert Kent Kiehl has contributed enormously to the field. He says that every adult psychopath he has ever worked with was different as a child, and not in a good way. When he looks through their prison files, he finds all kinds of stories about how much trouble they caused, how they never connected with friends, how they didn’t join teams, and how they were ultimately the black sheep of their families.

Sounds like what you would expect, right? A psychopath is not and never was your friend.

After A Relationship With A Sociopath/ Psychopath, Finding The Right Support Can Be Challenging

 

SlippingGetting out of a relationship with a sociopath can be dangerous, draining, and confusing. For me, and I’m guessing for many others, this can be exacerbated by the fact that finding the right support during this vulnerable time can be difficult.

Finding The Right Therapist

There was virtually nothing left of me after almost two decades of being unwittingly married to a sociopath –chronic, subtle criticism; gaslighting; isolation; blaming; triangulating, intermittent love/affection, etc.
