          "I Am Convinced My Granny is Being Catfished By a Man Who is Posing as a Financial Planner and She Could Go To Jail!”

          August 01, 2016

          Barbara admits she has wired money to her online boyfriend, “David Chris Jr.,” whom she has never met in person. According to Barbara, “David Chris Jr.” claimed to be an overseas financial advisor who assists people with getting government grants, and is currently on assignment in Nigeria. She says she can’t wait for “David Chris Jr.” to come home from Nigeria where he’s “stuck dealing with ‘business issues.’” Barbara says is looking forward to retiring in Michigan with him in his lakeside home.

          But, Barbara’s daughters and granddaughter say they believe this will never happen. They say “David Chris Jr.” does not exist and Barbara is just being used as a “money mule!”

          Plus, in Part 2 on Tuesday, Dr. Phil digs deeper to discover who is “David Chris Jr.”!
