Our expert says:
You do indeed seem to be describing a sociopath or psychopath, someone who needs to be avoided by all sensible people. Obviously she wouldn't want to actually pay for her own schemes, but if she had a rich old man bamboozled, why did your husband think he needed to help her start a business ( I bet there was never a viable business plan, either ) ?
Why on earth do thei pair of you continue to have anything at all to do with such a loathsome person ? Why do you feel you have to DO anything about it, as there seems to you to be no way to do so ? Simply refuse ( and your husband, too ) to have anything to do with her forever more - don't speak to her, contact her, or take calls from her. Move on with your own lives, and leave her to her own horrible one.
