Nancy says that for the past two years, she has been in an online relationship with an honest and loving man named “Shaun.” She says they’ve only communicated over the phone and through text messages, but she has sent him money because he needs $20,000 to get out of Dubai and come home.
“I really help ‘Shaun’ out a lot. I do this because I love him and I care for him,” Nancy says. "'Shaun' has become the light of my life.”

Nancy’s son and daughter-in-law, however, say they fear Nancy is being conned and no matter how much evidence they show her, she is adamant she’s not being scammed.
“My son, Darcy, is controlling, rude and argumentative,” says Nancy, who hasn’t spoken to Darcy in a year. “In my eyes, sitting down with Dr. Phil has nothing to do with ‘Shaun.’ What I want to talk to Dr. Phil about is to fix my relationship with my son and with my daughter-in-law, Lindsay.”
