Woman finds the ‘pickup artists’ who raped her — and bragged about it on the Internet

Tattooed hands of a criminal handcuffedA San Diego woman passed out in the apartment of some guys she just met in October 2013. She was raped. When she awoke, she went to the police.

Many rape cases end up being “he said, she said” situations, where the perpetrator claims that the sex was consensual. But this woman conducted her own Internet investigation. She found that the man who raped her, Alexander Markham Smith, 27, and his friend, Jonas Dick, 28, ran a business called “Efficient Pickup.”

The idea was to teach men how to have sex with as many women as possible.

To prove that their methods worked, Smith and Dick posted stories about their exploits — including a detailed account of the San Diego woman’s rape. It was enough to get them convicted.

Rape victim did her own detective work to find ‘pickup artists’ who assaulted her, on SanDiegoUnionTribune.com.

Why I wrote my new book, ‘Combating Romance Scams, Why Lying to Get Laid Is a Crime!’

combating-romance-scamsBy Joyce Short

Romance scams are a crime epidemic! We read about them daily in the news and many of us here on Lovefraud have suffered from this malicious behavior! We were defrauded of our highest emotion, which is love, and deceived into sex by someone totally different than who they pretended to be. Millions have fallen victim to this crime wave. It won’t stop ‘til we do something about it!

That’s why I wrote Combating Romance Scams: Why Lying to Get Laid Is a Crime!

I recently learned that Federal Prosecutors in Missouri included information about my blog, Stop Rape By Fraud, in their indictment to lock up a “serial rapist.” He’d used false pretenses to con over 30 victims. But blogs hit or miss. They don’t convey a cohesive sense of the crime or the solution for it like a book can.

“You’re Too Sensitive”—Just One Way Sociopaths Shirk Responsibility

Husband Liar Sociopath

Every week, a chapter of my book, “Husband, Liar, Sociopath: How He Lied, Why I Fell For It & The Painful Lessons Learned” (available via Amazon.com, just click on the title or book cover) will be published here on Lovefraud. To read prior chapters, please see the links at the bottom of the post.

Chapter 35A: The Weeds Always Win

When Paul and Anne-Marie found themselves with some available time, they hung out a shingle for their own consulting company—A-M-P Consulting Solutions. About this time we discovered that, although Daniel was an exceptionally bright child, he had some severe learning challenges and developmental delays that would mean years of work with specialists, daily therapy at home, and bi-weekly professional help. I orchestrated all of his diagnoses, care, and therapy. Paul never got involved and never seemed all that concerned. I assumed Paul was just too busy starting his own company, that he completely trusted me to take care of Daniel’s needs, and that he was calm in the face of adversity. Not knowing that Paul was and is a sociopath, how would I have ever attributed his behavior to total indifference regarding the welfare of his own son?

Classic sociopathic father: Lies, manipulation, gaslighting, and finally the truth is revealed

A young woman who posts on Lovefraud as “Butterfly” first contacted me in August. She had recognized that her boyfriend was disordered. She also realized that her father was disordered, which set her up to tolerate the lying, cheating boyfriend.

We exchanged emails several times over the last few months. She asked excellent questions, and I made two “Letters to Lovefraud” videos to answer them, which are included in this post.

With her permission, I’ve reproduced our email exchange. Her experience illustrates the confusing and painful experience of a disordered parent — and how it affected her own relationship choices. And you won’t believe what she discovered in the end. It was the last straw.
