Dr Phil: Fake Nigerian Internet Wife Scams Businessman For Over $130K


Dr Phil: Is My Wife Real or a Nigerian Love Scam?

Dr Phil dusted off a familiar theme for an episode about catfishing, which is what happens when a scammer pretends to be someone else online. Sometimes it is done to fulfill an emotional need, but primarily it is a way for con artists to collect money from trusting, aged American strangers.

    I hope Dr. Phil told Steve, and the audience, that people can always contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in Nigeria or elsewhere and ask for help. We’re here to assist Americans in trouble… and it’s a matter of minutes for us to find out if there’s ever been a passport issued to the “American overseas.”
