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.”
- Because Alldred impersonated a Navy SEAL, he was investigated by NCIS. That’s the first time I heard of them going after a romance scammer. Maybe they’ll do it again.
