A few weeks ago a Swiss man, Helg Sgarbi, pleaded guilty to swindling Germany’s richest woman, BMW heiress Susanne Klatten, out of $9 million. The story was all over the news around the world.
The incident prompted a British journalist, Rachel Royce, to write about her own experience with a con man. Royce writes for the Daily Mail in the UK. One of our Lovefraud readers forwarded a link. Read the story at:
For many of us at Lovefraud, the story is so familiar.
The good news is that the story is being told. Many of us know the humiliation of being conned. And many people before us also knew the humiliation, but were too embarrassed to speak about it. As more of us tell our stories, general awareness of human predators is being raised, whether we call them sociopaths, psychopaths or simply conmen.
Susanne Klatten and Rachel Royce: You go, girls!
