          Dr. Phil To Admitted Catfish: ‘I Think You Have Experienced Trauma In Your Life’


          November 16, 2018

          Amanda and Alan hired a private investigator to help them uncover the person who had been stealing their social media photos and created fake profiles using Alan’s images as bait to lure dozens of women into online relationships.

          The couple says they were shocked to learn that it wasn’t a man, but a 24-year-old woman named Sarah, who was the catfish.

          Sarah admits to all of it and apologizes. She claims she can’t explain why she targeted Alan and Amanda but says taking on a different identity “was never meant to be malicious.”
