True Lovefraud Stories
Empty promises by sociopaths
True stories of love, deceit and fraud
If you haven’t been victimized by a sociopath, count your blessings. Then ask around. You probably know someone with a story to tell—if he or she will talk.
Being the victim of a scam is embarrassing. Humiliating. Victims keep asking themselves, “How could I have been so stupid? Why didn’t I see it coming?” The last thing they want to do is tell other people how they participated in being duped—even though it’s not their fault.
Sociopaths are really that good. They can fool anyone. But because few people are willing to admit what happened, the rest of us have no idea how many sociopaths are out there, how they operate and how much damage they cause.
