My friend fell prey to what I guess you would call a badger game. His wife, or I should say former wife, was a very jealous type. She was always convinced that her husband, my friend, would cheat or was right on the verge of cheating.
She called an escort service and basically paid for a woman to seduce her husband. I guess she wanted to see if he would remain faithful in the face of temptation. Well, my friend was not as honorable as he should have been. I'm not proud of this but it's just the truth.
The hired woman told the wife who confronted the husband and in the ensuing fight and divorce the entire scheme was revealed. It was sneaky and everyone knew it but it didn't change the fact of the infidelity. Long story short, my friend lost a lot of his personal wealth and has never really recovered. You don't think that people you know could get schemed like this but it happens.
