A “Dr. Phil” Catfish Investigation: “My Mom is Being Scammed”
Dr. Phil meets Candice, who says she is 100% convinced her mom, Lois, is being scammed by men online and has tried everything to intervene. Dr. Phil also meets Lois’ younger sister, LouAnn, who says Lois sacrificed her 37-year marriage and retirement savings for fictional online love. Lois admits she has been scammed in the past, but says she is happily engaged to a man she met online. Despite her family’s concerns, Lois says she wants her daughter and sister to accept her fiancé – the only hiccup is that he is stuck in Africa.
