Audio/Video of James Montgomery - at lovefraud.com, a website created by Donna Andersen.
"You don't have to be a fool to be defrauded by a love con, victims say. All you have to do is afford them the same trust you'd afford anyone else."
“Sociopaths have no heart, no conscience and no remorse. They don't worry about paying the bills. They think nothing of lying, cheating and stealing, As far as sociopaths are concerned, the rules don't apply to them. They have absolutely no regard for anybody.”
“The experience of being taken by a psychopath is so devastating that most people feel like they can never trust anyone again,” she says. “Lovefraud is here to be a resource when you know something is not right and you can't put your finger on it.”
