My Identity Thief Loves Me

03 February 2010  |  2318 views  |  0

I have a very weird job. I explore aspects of society that people read about but would never consider exploring themselves. I go places where others may be led to because they didn’t know any better. And I like too expose the flaws in the system that make us vulnerable. Much of my “research” or “antics” as some would call it is prompted by my desire to learn more about the scumbags of society or predators that prey on other people.

My research has taken me down a dark seedy road into online dating scams, where some people are at their most emotionally vulnerable. The predators work a form of 419/advanced fee scam that always involved a money wire transfer.

There is something about people with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) that intrigues me. Antisocial personality disorder is a type of chronic mental illness in which your ways of thinking, perceiving situations and relating to others are dysfunctional. When you have antisocial personality disorder, you typically have no regard for right and wrong. You may often violate the law and the rights of others, landing yourself in frequent trouble or conflict. You may lie, behave violently, and have drug and alcohol problems. And you may not be able to fulfill responsibilities to your family, work or school. Some say at least a full 1 percent of the world has this.

I say 99 percent of all people have had ASPD for at least a day/week/month/year, except me

My recent love affair was prompted by a call from a national television show producer who is newly divorced. She, like many millions of others, (about 40 million +) is subscribed to online dating services. She is in a circle of women who all are in their early 50’s, married young and now find themselves in a new chapter of their lives.

With this degree of transition and being single comes an unfair level of loneliness that is very difficult to overcome without support from others. At times in my life, early on, I experienced this can tell you first hand, loneliness often trumps common sense and facilitates bad decision making.

She and a dozen of her girlfriends all got together recently and discovered many of them were being courted, online by men from the UK. These men would say the nicest things to them. For example (and this is within 1 week):

In me sweetheart you are going to find the most passionate, loving and romantic man you have ever met. There are very few promises in life but this is one of them!. ROMANCE is the key to my happiness and to my heart and soul!. It is the single biggest reason I am single today is because I have yet to find a woman who will romance me with the passion of there heart and be a giver of there love, and not just a taker. I am a man who is very committed to the special woman I am sharing my heart and soul with. I totally dedicate and devote my life totally to this person 24/7, for her she’s my Queen and it is my belief that as long as she’s my Queen, I would treat her good and right, by putting her on a pedestal that is reserved only for a Queen and showing her with an endless amount of affection, attention, passion, and unconditional love. It is my duty as a follower of the word of God to be her provider, providing for her emotional, mental, and sexual needs. It is my responsibility as her King to take any problems and stress that she has in her life and put it on my shoulders to free her of it, for I am a man and her King!. My shoulders are bigger so it is my obligation to carry the burdens she might has in life off them, allowing her to have a healthy mind, body, and heart and soul at all times. I love and cherish this role sweetheart, and it is because I love it so much, that I feel God has a role for everyone in life, and his chosen role for me is to be that excellent lover, father, and family man, because of the way I live my life, and because of my passion to be a great lover and family man.

Dudes gotta be a great lover to have that roll off his tongue. Right? Eeesh. At first, none of this seemed all that odd to them. We all like nice things said to us, and while a bit hokey, this dudes dictation ain’t all that bad.  Further, when you are lonely, even a visit from one of those crazy religious sects can be soothing. This entire scene is a perfect opportunity for a predator to strike. To be continued on “My Identity Thief Loves Me (PTII)” where you can read the actual chats with the scammer.

  • Get a credit freeze. Click on the preceding link and follow the steps for your particular state. This is an absolutely necessary tool to secure your credit. In most cases, it prevents new accounts from being opened in your name. This makes your Social Security number useless to a potential identity thief.
