Patsy’s niece, Karen, says she’s worried that her aunt is being catfished. She says she believes Patsy is being taken advantage of by someone she fell in love with on the internet.

“I really got suspicious when she stated that he is in Cairo, Egypt. She told me that he writes her incredible love letters and that she thinks it’s so cute because he mixes his words up. No, that’s because he’s using a translation app,” says Karen.
