We have recently learned of another instance of the heartless treatment by Jim Perrin of the many women who have become enamoured of him over the years, and whom he has cajoled and cozened into sharing their lives and their assets. Financial gain and the acquisition of property were his main considerations, as one after the other the poor duped women would discover. We have been told by some of them how much they had lost, and how their lives have been ruined by their association with him.
Sadly, our sister Jac was also deceived by him and we have posted evidence of his mental cruelty towards her and of his violent assault on one of her sons. This assault was reported to the police and was logged.

We were told that Jim Perrin continues to repeat, 22/02/2019, the ‘story’ of his horrific experiences as a cancer sufferer, ref.

“We who have suffered physically, psychologically, emotionally and financially from our relationships with this man can now feel a sense of community and hopefully some strength.
As these abuses are revealed in several areas of life, anyone who has suffered at the hands of Jim Perrin should feel more confident to speak out and know we are not alone.
And certainly not in his case as this very helpful website has vividly illustrated.”
