Lois says she met a man in a motel room in 2019 and gave him $9,000 in exchange for what was supposed to be a suitcase from her former online sweetheart, “The General.” She says she didn’t receive the luggage, but, instead, claims she was given stacks of “white money” – camouflaged U.S. currency – that require being washed in a “special” solution from France before they can be used.

Lois says the man washed three bills in the solution in front of her, revealing $100 bills underneath the white coating, and proving to her that the “white money” was real.

Agreeing to have the bills she says she was given tested on-air, Lois shipped the “white money” inside her personal safe to Dr. Phil producers, where it has remained locked inside a private office ensuring no one else had access to it. She mailed the key separately.
