Michael Roberts and Tracey Richter were one of the first "internet marriages." It went horribly wrong. Richter is now in prison after being convicted of murder. Roberts runs Rexxfield.com while fending off smear campaigner Darren Meade, among other things. Most important - Roberts is fighting for custody of his children.
From "60 MINUTES":
Part 1 of 2:
Like a classic cyberpath, Darren Meade befriended Roberts and when Roberts started to see who Meade truly was, Meade went on the attack. Our support group members will attest - Once you are wise to them: Cyberpaths start finding anyone and everyone who has a grudge against you to join in a group 'mobbing' or group 'smear campaign'. This is also known as proxy recruitment.
In proxy recruitment - people (such as cyberpaths) will find others who dislike or are angry with their target. Befriend them, often telling others what they believe or want to hear to get close to them - even if its false information, and add them to their effort of character assassination of the target.
Robert's relationship to Darren Meade, and Meade's involving himself with Tracey Richter's case explained:
Readers, meeting someone on the internet is dangerous. The relationships that have success are outnumbered by those that end in heartbreak, financial ruin, trauma, death and lives permanently shattered. - EOPC
Thank you to Michael Roberts
