Family Claims 80-Year-Old Lost Most Of His Retirement Savings To A Catfish
Ralph was widowed three years ago after 51 years of marriage. The 80-year-old recently met “Louise” on an online dating site and says he can’t wait to meet her in person. But, “Louise” has told Ralph she’s stuck in Germany and needs his help to get home.
Ralph’s son, Dan, and Dan’s wife, Laura, say Ralph has lost most of his retirement savings trying to bring “Louise” back to the U.S. They’re convinced “Louise” is a catfish who is only interested in Ralph for his money.
