Gambling wife cons £3.5 million from her British husband and his family

Christopher Forte and his con artist wife, Juliana Posman.

Chris Forte of the United Kingdom fell in love with a woman he met at work, Juliana Posman, who was born in Indonesia. She told his family she needed to borrow £130,000 for immigration issues, and Forte’s parents gladly helped.

That was the beginning of the money drain. It turned out that Posman was a gambling addict and a con artist who lost £3.5 million.

The Atlantic tells the story of serial con man Derek Alldred and his multiple romance scams

Derek Alldred as a fake Navy SEAL

For several years, Lovefraud posted articles about Derek Alldred, a con man who scammed women in Minnesota, Texas and other states. He posed as a war hero, physician, investment banker and more, scamming about a dozen women out of more than $1 million.

The creep is finally in jail. And The Atlantic has written a comprehensive story of his exploits — and how his victims banded together to stop him.

The perfect man who wasn’t, on TheAtlantic.com.

My comments on the article:

  • Not once did the author mention any personality disorder. She made the statement that “America loves a con man.”

Sexual exploitation perpetrated by humanitarian aid workers

Sociopaths exploit vulnerable people. That’s what they do. That’s how they live.

Oxfam, a confederation of 19 charitable organizations founded in Oxford, England, has been roiled by accusations of sexual abuse by its aid workers in Haiti. But now we see news stories indicating that sexual exploitation among organizations that provide humanitarian aid in disaster areas is widespread.

How low can they go?

Oxfam scandal highlights spectrum of abuse: local staff, recipients — aid workers, too, on CBC.ca.

Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz — psychopath, psychotic or traumatized?

Nikolas Cruz was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder in the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

Another school shooting. Last week, Nikolas Cruz, 19, shot up his former school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida. He killed 17 people and wounded 14 more.

In the initial reporting about the incident, none of the students who knew Cruz were surprised. They feared him and mostly stayed away from him. The New York Times reported:

“A lot of people were saying that it would be him,” the student told WFOR-TV. “They would say he would be the one to shoot up the school. Everyone predicted it.”

Ex-wives accuse White House aide Rob Porter of abuse

White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter

Rob Porter, White House staff secretary,  abruptly resigned his post on February 6 after the Daily Mail exposed his history of abuse with two ex-wives.

Both women — Colbie Holderness, 37, and Jennifer Willoughby, 39 — spoke on the record to the Daily Mail. They described not only physical assault, but his rage, insults, manipulation and more.

The behavior described by the women will sound very familiar to Lovefraud readers.

Most recently, Porter has been involved with Hope Hicks, 29, White House Communications Director. Hopefully, she’ll dump him.
