Four years ago, Katherine Morris, a young woman who was two weeks away from graduating from the University of Maryland, died suddenly.

The police said the death was suicide. Her mother, Rev. Marguerite Morris isn’t so sure — and she is still working to uncover the truth.

Katherine Morris was married to a soldier, Isaac Goodwin. But her mother contends that the marriage was a sham, that Goodwin married just to defraud the government of Basic Allowance for Housing pay, and he was never held accountable. In fact, Goodwin received a $100,000 insurance payout for Katherine’s death.

A new biography of Paul McCartney of the Beatles paints his ex-wife, Heather Mills, as a money-grubbing liar who took millions of pounds, and several properties, in the divorce.

She claimed she was sexually abused and left home at 13, which was a lie.

She claimed to be a former high-fashion model, when she really posed for downmarket lingerie catalogs.

She even said she was in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize, which was total fabrication.

Even the rich and famous can fall for the romance scam.

For 10 years, Kathy Mills, a former special education teacher and Mary Kay sales director, has been at war.

Kathy, of Pickerington, Ohio, has been fighting her husband — a West Point graduate and Special Forces operative, the Ohio National Guard and the United States Army. She wants the $500,000 she should have been paid when her husband abandoned her to deploy to Iraq and later died in a parachuting accident.

The response from the military, courts and elected officials? Mostly, 10 years of runaround.

Profiting from child custody payments

Many, many sociopaths fight for custody of their children. Sociopaths are incapable of loving anyone, including their children. So why do they want the kids?

One big reason is to torment the other parent by depriving them of the kids.

Another reason is to make money. If the sociopath is the custodial parent, the other parent will have to pay up until the children are 18, or even older, for kids who go to college.

Career women who are proficient in English are falling victim to love scams because they are lonely, said a police commissioner in Malaysia.

Financial losses in these cases nearly quadrupled last year, from RM52.3 million ($13 million) to RM195 million ($48 million.)

Much of the scamming is being perpetrated by crime syndicates from Nigeria. Police raided a budget hotel in Malaysia and arrested two Nigerian men and a Malaysian woman, according to the deputy director of the Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department.

Ashley Kozel says her ex-husband, former Gulf Keystone Petroleum CEO Todd Kozel, 48, hasn’t paid their $38 million divorce settlement.

In a lawsuit, she says Todd Kozel “uses a sophisticated chain of offshore entities to shield his assets from the reach of creditors, such as his former wife.”

Ashley Kozel accuses her ex of spending thousands of dollars on clothes and vacations for his new wife, a 29-year-old blonde from Lithuania.

A judge has just granted Ashley Kozel access to her ex-husband’s $12.7 million Manhattan apartment.

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.

Kenyan con man trolls bars to find info on rich, single women

African womanThe Star in Kenya reported the sad but familiar story of a con man who preyed on rich, young women.

This guy visited clubs looking for women who were driving luxury cars and buying expensive liquor. Then he befriended bartenders to learn more about the women, and made himself into the Prince Charming that they were looking for.

One woman, called “Alice,” met him in church — which he joined after she posted pictures of her church meetings on Facebook. He slowly ingratiated himself.

And then he disappeared, taking Sh5 million of her money (5 million Kenyan shillings, or almost $49,000).

The sociopath said he’d pay me back from his Mexican inheritance

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

I met him online in July 2014, fell hard and fast and moved in two weeks later.

In September he spoke to me about an inheritance that he hadn’t claimed in Mexico after his parents’ deaths in 2009. It included a million dollar property and a huge bank account. I was shocked.

We were engaged in December 2014 in Las Vegas and supposed to move to Mexico City in February to take care of all the paperwork and get a better evaluation on the house, as well as remove personal belongings.
