‘You Treat Me Like Trash Because You Don’t Send Me Cash’
Nino, and his fiancée, Alexandria, say they want Dr. Phil to help them convince Nino’s mother, Anna, that her online “boyfriend” isn’t real. They claim that the person calling himself “Sammie Lee Strong” is a catfish who has talked Anna out of over $120,000.
Anna admits to helping out “Sammie” financially. She says he is currently “stuck” in Nigeria but has told her he’s worth millions, and insists that he is going to pay her back once they’re together.
In the video above, Dr. Phil reviews a number of text messages that “Sammie” has sent to Anna over the years demanding that she send him money.
When Dr. Phil says, “He’s saying, ‘You treat me like trash because you don’t send me cash,’” what is Anna’s response?
Part one of this three-part Dr. Phil airs Tuesday. On Wednesday, what does an international investigation into “Sammie Lee Strong” uncover? Dr. Phil tells viewers, “You have no idea where this is headed.”
