We have all heard people say that ‘ money complicates things’, that is no less true for abusive relationships. Financial Abuse by toxic people has many forms, and can take place in many different relationships.
What is Financial Abuse
Financial Abuse is pretty much any manipulation or controlling behavior that is linked to income and expenditure. It is very often stealth and not an outright demand, which makes it all that much more difficult to defend against. Here are some examples:
- Creating a situation where the target either loses or must quit a job
- Inventing reasons to “need” a “loan” from the target, even while knowing the target may not necessarily have the funds
- Demanding total control over the target’s finances
