Dr Phil: Internet Romance Scams
Dr Phil talked with Craig and his mother. Craig may have been the victim of an online dating scam, giving money away to a girl he has never met. But Dr Phil got Jen, Craig’s online girlfriend, on the phone. What did she have to say?
Dr Phil: Online Dating Relationship
Jen was on the phone with Dr Phil and Craig. She said that Craig’s mother, Lucy, has caused problems by butting into their relationship. She said that she has issues in her life that have prevented their meetings.
This girl is lying, if I had to guess. Dr Phil said he thinks Lucy is just looking out for her son. But Jen is annoyed that Lucy has refused to back off of questioning their relationship.
Dr Phil: Online Dating Fraud
“People who have nothing to hide hide nothing,” Dr Phil said. But how can we find out whether Jen is the real deal? He asked her to admit whether she is a real person. Craig and Lucy agreed that they would let things go if she admitted she was a fraud.
But Dr Phil said he would assist in collecting evidence to pursue her for criminal charges if she turned out to be lying about all this and would not admit to it. Jen volunteered to Skype with Jason off camera, but she made excuses once Dr Phil pressed her to follow through.
Dr Phil: Social Media Scams?
“If you’re lyin’, this is your ticket out of this,” Dr Phil said to Jen. But she insisted she is for real, and her name is Jennifer Johnson.
But Dr Phil said her picture turns up on social media websites. Jen said she was afraid of being around Lucy, but would agree to meet Craig in person.
