          ‘My Aunt Has Lost All Insight,’ Says Man Who Claims She’s The Victim Of A Catfishing Scheme


          October 26, 2018

          Terri’s nephew, James, says when she told him she had an online relationship with the actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he laughed because he didn’t realize at the time she believed it was true. James claims Terri has been scammed out of thousands of dollars by an internet catfish – and worse –“She’s withdrawn and isolated herself from the family.”

          Terri says she gave her online love about $8,000 in iTunes cards, as well as access to her bank accounts, but soon realized she’d been used as part of an international money-laundering scheme. Terri says she’s convinced that the actor, or someone who works with him, is involved in the scam.

          James says he’s 100% certain The Walking Dead actor isn’t involved. “My aunt has lost all insight from this person who has been manipulating her and taking advantage of her,” he says in the video above.

          “Terri’s a very fierce, independent woman. A strong personality,” says James’ wife, Natasha adding “It really shows that scams can happen to anyone.”
