When Barbara appeared on Dr. Phil, she said she wanted to spend the rest of her life with a man she met online, whom she called “David Chris Jr.” She said she couldn’t wait for him to come home from Nigeria where she says he was stuck dealing with “business issues.” However, Barbara’s daughters and granddaughter said they believed "David" didn’t exist and that Barbara was being used as a “money mule” by a "con man."
Dr. Phil brought Barbara face to face with the man in the photo she said she fell in love with, and she learned that she was in fact being scammed.
In the video above, hear how Barbara is doing now. And, she offers advice to Irina, who is currently dating and says she has given her life savings to a man she met online but has never met in person.
