Do not trust those charismatic charmers
✒ HOW to spot a sociopath...
In the past few months, I have watched friends and relatives become victims of scams, usually on the internet. Scammers are usually sociopaths. They are charming and persuasive and have an air of authority.
They appear to be intelligent, sincere and knowledgable about many subjects.
They exude a feeling of warmth that appears genuine.
They are concerned about your welfare.
They are good company. Fun to be around and they have charisma.
They want to get the job done - their enthusiasm is infectious. They make extravagant promises. However, all they really want is power and wealth for themselves.
Even the most intelligent and welleducated person can be fooled by a sociopath.
They are masters of deception and they are serial liars.
They are reckless and ruthless, they need excitement and have no conscience.
They leave behind a trail of broken relationships and have ruined lives.
They despise the weak and disabled, and the poor.
They damage and destroy businesses they work for, and they do not care. Some of them are politicians. Be warned... J Ward
