I thought we were done with the scammer and my son. However, my son was acting badly toward his sister and went off on me Monday morning. At that point, I knew something was going on. He has one computer he will not give me access to. He left to go to an appointment and, I still couldn’t get on that computer. But, a message popped up from the scammer. I figure he connected with S on Saturday night or Sunday morning.
I knew I had to do something. I also knew he was going to get very angry. But, I did it anyway. I changed all the WiFi passwords in the house. That was a pain. I goofed up something and nothing worked for a while. Took me about 1.5 hours, but I accomplished my mission.
I was waiting for the explosion from my son. He did not disappoint. He came outside stomping at yelling that I had no right to do that to him. I said I didn’t do anything to him. I did it for our safety. Everything is in my and my husband’s names. The detective said all communication had to be cut off. I told my son that he put all of us at risk especially since he gave out our address. I said if he wanted free rein to communicate with whomever he wants, he needs to get his own internet under his name and the same with his phone. I also said no one was holding him here. He can leave whenever he wants. Oh right...he gave away all his money. He has no money to pay for anything.
He then went into his dramatics of you don’t love me blah, blah, blah. My husband came home and tried the coddling tactic. That goes no where. Then my daughter came home and ripped him a new one. She laid into him for a good 1/2 hour.
I spoke with son’s therapist and he said my daughter was absolutely right. My son knows I will give into him. My daughter won’t. My son asked me to connect his laptop yesterday. I said that was up to his sister. I am more than happy to let my daughter take a bigger role with him. I just can’t do it anymore. I feel bad for him because of the Aspergers, but I don’t believe it gives him license to scream and swear at me and break my house. He’s 25. He should know better.
Apparently, people with Aspergers don’t understand how to form relationships and are extremely gullible. His therapist said he may not learn anything from this. He firmly believes this scammer is in love with him. The police said there are lots of people without disabilities that refuse to believe they have been scammed as well.
