Lovefraud received the following letter from a reader whom we’ll call, “Margaret Louise.”

Please point me in the direction for good advice about recovering from heartache caused by my adult son, who is a sociopath. And, help me realize my responsibilities as his parent.

Joshua is 33 years old. He has 3 children by 3 different women. While he is in the relationship with the women, I am blacklisted from contact with my grandchildren. As the relationships fall apart, and the mothers realize they’ve been duped, I can begin to have that cherished relationship with my grandchildren and fortunately with the mothers.

Forcing kids to bond with parents they don’t want to see

Sometimes, in high-conflict divorces, children do not want to have anything to do with one of their parents.

Many Lovefraud readers have seen their sociopathic ex-partners turn children away from them. They call it “parental alienation.”

But sometimes sociopathic parents fabricate claims of parental alienation in order to pry children away from the other parent. They claim the other parent is intentionally poisoning the kids against them, when, in fact, it is their own abusive behavior.

It can be very difficult to know what is going on and who is the abusive parent.

Incest, rape and a useless social services agency

Robert Clark and Samantha Simmons (Rockbridge Regional Jail)

Half-siblings from rural Virginia were sentenced to more than 100 years in prison for seriously abusing two little girls.

Robert Eugene Clark, 39, received 65 years and Samantha Kay Simmons, 30, received 43 years.

In 2015, two sisters, aged 3 and 8, were discovered in a filthy trailer owned by the siblings that was crawling with bugs. The girls had been sexually abused.

The crimes are shocking enough. But three-quarters of the way through the story, Daily Mail reports that the local social services supervisor refused to enter complaints about the situation into the agency’s computer system and shredded others.

Because “kindness” and “empathy” are faked, a sociopath can turn evil in an instant

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 46A: Divorcing A Sociopath—Round I

As we discussed dissolving our marriage, Paul’s initial strategy was to act kind and generous. He urged me to follow his lead, and everything would be all right. I asked him if he was involved with another woman—not that it made a difference. I just wanted to know. He assured me he wasn’t dating anyone and laughed at the absurdity of the idea.

We are in counseling, and his objective is to get the counselor to fix me

Lovefraud received the following letter from a reader whom we’ll call “Shoni.”

I am just starting to believe my husband of 12 yrs may be a sociopath.

I had the house, the car, the job when we met. He was new to the area going through a divorce from his Canadian wife.

He was intelligent, charming, attentive, talkative, fun. Seemingly enjoyed church and a relationship with God. Never missed a Sunday.

Now he calls himself a prophet.

He reported my stepsister to the Fraud dept of IRS hoping to collect 10% recovery fee. He said God told him to do it.

Con artist Derek Alldred scams women in Texas

Lovefraud has written about Derek Alldred before. He’s scammed women from California, Arizona and Minnesota out of thousands of dollars. Most recently, he moved on to Texas.

Alldred claims to be a Navy SEAL, doctor, lawyer or professor. Last year in Arizona, he pleaded no contest to theft. Then he failed to appear at his sentencing.

Perhaps he was already in Texas by then.

7 reasons why regular people enable sociopaths

Jerry Sandusky

Three former administration officials of Penn State University were sentenced to jail last Friday because they failed to report signs that Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach, was sexually abusing boys.

This is right and just. They should be held accountable.

The former university president, Graham B. Spanier, will spend at least two months in jail, followed by two months of house arrest. Gary Schultz, the former athletic director, and Tim Curley, a former vice president, will also spend time in jail, followed by house arrest.

Despite the ocean between us, he controlled my every move

Spath TalesLovefraud received the following story from a reader whom we’ll call “Larissa.”

I met him while I was traveling through India. We crossed paths twice within an hour and chatted at the seaside cafe where I had ordered a meal. He was very attractive, striking even – but I was not at all consciously interested in a romance with this guy. I had encountered quite a lot of lechery as a woman traveling alone, although he seemed different. Gentle. Interesting. He seemed very savvy and initially, even slightly aloof to the point of seeming guarded around me. Polar opposite to what I had been experiencing!
