          Woman Concerned Over Aunt’s Internet Romance Says ‘She’s Willing To Compromise Everything’ For A ‘Fairytale’


          September 19, 2017

          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. Patsy met John online eight months ago, and since then, her family says, she’s racked up massive debt for the man she has yet to meet in person.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Catfish Scam?

          “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.

          She continues, “I’ve watched enough Dr. Phil Shows to see so many scams. I asked her to get me a passport photo. She refused. She wouldn’t let me run a background check.”

          Karen says her aunt wants the fairytale so badly “that she’s willing to compromise everything – even her common sense.”

          Patsy says what she does with her life isn’t anyone’s business but her own, and she wants her family to “butt out.”

          When Dr. Phil uncovers multiple inconsistencies in the personal background John has given to Patsy, how does she respond? Tune in to Tuesday's episode.
