Okay - I can't not do an entry on this class act scammer.

The Cynical-C Blog alerted me to this one and after amusing yourself with the you-tube video, make sure to read more at the IvyGate source. This guy's really too much.

Reminds me of someone I know. Anyone wanna guess who that is?

I think we've all had the misfortune of meeting, befriending, or falling in love with a character like this.

I thought this excerpt was an interesting glimpse into the mind of that type of person:

"Imagine - if you can - not having a conscience, none at all, no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what you do, no limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or even family members. Imagine no struggles with shame, not a single one in your whole life, no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action you had taken."

"And pretend that the concept of responsibility is unknown to you, except as a burden others seem to accept without question, like gullible fools."

"Now add to this strange fantasy the ability to conceal from other people that your psychological makeup is radically different from theirs. Since everyone simply assumes that conscience is universal among human beings, hiding the fact that you are conscience-free is nearly effortless."

"You are not held back from any of your desires by guilt or shame, and you are never confronted by others for your cold-bloodedness. The ice water in your veins is so bizarre, so completely outside of their personal experience, that they seldom even guess at your condition."

"In other words, you are completely free of internal restraints, and your unhampered liberty to do just as you please, with no pangs of conscience, is conveniently invisible to the world."

"You can do anything at all, and still your strange advantage over the majority of people, who are kept in line by their consciences will most likely remain undiscovered."

From the book by Martha Stout, Ph.D., The Sociopath Next Door

Like Patrick Bateman in American Psycho.

I don't know why I seem to be a magnet for these type of people, but experience does make us ever more wary. Cheers to eliminating liars and cheats from our lives.

Woohoo - the Museum of Hoaxes has taken my bait and added it's two cents on Alexsey. :)
