Sisters claiming their mom has fallen for a celebrity catfishing scam with someone who has been impersonating actor/director Tyler Perry at its center, claim she’s been conned out of nearly $100,000.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Catfish Scam?

Kelly and Kourtney say their mother, Karla, is convinced that she’s married to Perry whom she’s never met in person; and that she says she believes the money she’s given away has gone toward some of his personal expenses and to charity.
