          Today’s Takeaway: “I Need to Help My Fiancée Who is Stranded in Amsterdam and Has Been Scammed by Corrupt Officials Costing Me $200,000”


          October 26, 2017

          Dennis says he met “Kimberly” on an online dating website a year ago, and the two quickly fell in love. He claims they had plans to meet in person once “Kimberly” returned from an overseas trip but because of a series of unfortunate events, “Kimberly” is currently stranded in Amsterdam. Dennis claims he has sent more than $200,000 in an effort to help “Kimberly” get home, but that corrupt government officials are scamming him out of every last penny.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Catfish Scam?

          On Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil shows Dennis how he has actually been scammed by the person claiming to be “Kimberly.” He points out how documents that “Kimberly” sent Dennis are fake and that the address he was given for where “Kimberly” allegedly lives in Chicago does not exist. And, Dr. Phil introduces Dennis to the real woman behind the photos he had been sent – who was a victim too.

          In the video above from after the show, Dr. Phil offers tips for what to look for to avoid being scammed and how to prevent yourself from becoming a victim.

          This episode of Dr. Phil airs Thursday. Watch more here.
