“Do you trust me?”
“Absolutely NOT.” (my answer in a recent zoom meeting in vetting a business situation in trying to collect my judgment with Ex NFL player)
Many of us have experienced fraud in business, personal and our social lives.
I wanted to wrap up the Rocking a Betrayal series in 2022 with Author and Love Fraud Founder Donna Andersen as she is a champion of helping 10’s of thousands of victims through her seminars, books, platform and now Ted Talk.
This episode is filled with vulnerable shares and tips, tools and more in ways to avoid fraud as well as to heal from your own fraud.
Here it is:
Donna Andersen is creator of Lovefraud.com, a website that teaches people to recognize and recover from sociopaths. She is the author of eight books, including Senior Sociopaths — How to recognize and escape lifelong abusers (May 2022), Red Flags of Love Fraud—10 signs you’re dating a sociopath, the Red Flags of Love Fraud Workbook and the four-part Best of the Lovefraud Blog series. She learned about sociopaths the hard way, by marrying one, and tells the whole outrageous story in her first book, Love Fraud.
Donna founded Lovefraud Education and Recovery, a nonprofit that offers webinars to help survivors and professionals identify, escape and recover from sociopaths, including narcissists, psychopaths and other manipulators. She is co-author of two scientific papers and has presented research to the Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy.
