The victim loses essential necessities of life. Most victims lose their life savings, homes, furniture, vehicles, as well as their dignity and credibility. Families and friends distance themselves in most cases.
Many victims become suicidal and struggle to regain control of their lives. Finances, health and marriages suffer the consequences and victims often drown in depression.
