(Original Air Date: 11/10/06) The drama continues as Dr. Phil goes on the hunt for con artists who cheat viewers out of thousands of dollars by posing as him and Robin. Along with private investigator Harold Copus, Dr. Phil sets up a sting in Houston, Texas. Don’t miss the confrontation when the unsuspecting scammers arrive at what they believe is a bachelorette party. Then, Renee, who was allegedly cheated out of thousands by the con artists, finally gets to sit down with the real Dr. Phil. Talk about the show here.

Find out what happened on the show.

Gullable

I always thought that I was the most gullable person I've ever known, but come on people, when would Dr. Phil or Robin request money for their services?  Unless I was invited to have a personal one on one with him or Robin for counselling I would think twice before ever sending money!  Sorry no sympathy here.

Should inform many

No matter how savvy you are, there's always a new method to catch you off guard. Whether it's a phone call, phishing email, or a letter, this should help people to think about whether or not they should check something a little closer before handing out personal info.

 

And it should help interested parties know what services Dr. Phil and Robin do and do not offer at this time! :-)

And, when would two such busy people have time to spend hours on the phone, "counselling" people? Not only do they spend a lot of time preparing for, and taping, his show, they're also in demand on the speaking circuit. Especially since Robin's book has been released.

Umm well you can critique the people with problems reaching

out from home but even Dr. Phil and Robin state how shocked

they was?  The scam is happening all over, whereever the lazy

low lifes can find a place or people to scam!

   It was enevitable it happen to yes, even Dr. Phil.

Please before you get on a critique wagon, remember

that it is vulnerable people with older people the biggest numbers

who don't use internet and other means on communication that is

easiest to scam.

Also it is trusting people!  Trust aint gullable, its what should be

a given just so happens it aint.

Scam

I cant understand how these woman really thought they would be talking to Dr Phil and Robin. Once they were asked for money, the big red flag should have gone up..

Anyway, I am finding this kind of comical... When Robin was setting herself up to talk to herself, and the woman didnt even recognize Robins voice, was totally funny to me.  Cant wait to see their faces when they first SEE Dr Phil. HAHA.. SHould be good!

 

I do feel bad for the women who thought they were getting help, and I feel bad that Dr Phil and Robin are being used for some peoples greed. At least they found out about it , and are doing somthing about it!

Go Dr Phil and Robin!!

Those scammers werent Nigerians

I didnt see any Nigerian lady amongst those scam artistes. They are all Americans!!!  Wouldnt  it be very wrong to assume every American is a fraud?
The scam industry is a universal thing lately, how wrong will we be to ascribe all the blames to Nigeria, Nigerians or Africans as a whole. Many of these scams are going on in the American society and Americans are loosing Millions to fellow Americans.
