Dr Phil is back on the hunt for Love Scams in a brand new show airing Friday, May 16. The names might be new, but the story never changes. Meet another woman who fell for a romantic opportunity. This show is called I Married a Catfish Over The Phone.
Dr Phil: Love Scams
Catfishing, the practice of maintaining fake identities and relationships online, has become such a consequence of modern technology and society that it is even the subject of its own MTV docuseries.
Dr Phil has featured past victims in order to help them clearly see that they are being misled for financial gain. But for every person whose eyes are opened, there are countless others still being preyed upon, which is why we’re back at this again on Friday, May 16 with the latest Dr Phil Love Scams episode.
Dr Phil: I Married a Catfish Over the Phone
Joy is 55 years old, and she was thrilled to strike up an online relationship with a man she knows as Donny. Though they have only been talking for three months, she is head over heels for him. When he proposed to her via text message, she enthusiastically accepted his offer, and now they are “heart married,” which I can’t wait to hear more about. (Don’t worry; they will get married for real when they meet in person.)
Joy will explain to Dr Phil why she has sent this man $50,000, even though the holes in his cover story are big enough to drive a truck through. Dr Phil will point out the plagiarized love letters, inconsistencies, and other evidence adding up against Donny in hopes that Joy will see through this pitiful scam.
Dr Phil Update: Sandy Love Scam
Plus, what will happen when Joy tries to get Donny on the phone, or when Dr Phil rings him up for a confrontation via phone? Also on this show, Dr Phil will check in with Sandie, a past guest who found herself in a similar situation. Tune in for another round of Dr Phil Love Scams on Friday, May 16.
