‘You’re Paying Him To Tell You Nice Things,’ Dr. Phil Says To Woman About Her Online Boyfriend

Fran says she’s been dating her online boyfriend, “Craig,” for over a year. She says he’s her soul mate, and that she has sent him money so that he can get his inheritance and that they can live their happily ever after. “He makes me feel special. Craig always treats me good, always says nice things to me,” Fran says. “Craig really won my heart over, and I’m still giddy and in love with Craig.” On Wednesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil questions Fran about “Craig’s” behavior toward her. When he asks her, “He’s sweet and kind when you’re paying him money – but when you don’t, he threatens you, rejects you, breaks up with you. So you’re paying him to tell you nice things. Isn’t that the truth?” how does Fran respond? Watch in the video above. Plus, see what a Dr. Phil investigation turned up about “Craig.” Fran’s brother and sister say she’s sent “Craig” thousands of dollars, and sold her car and living room furniture to have money to send him, and they fear she is being scammed. On Monday’s episode, “In Love or In Denial?,” see what happens when Fran meets the man in the pictures she believes is "Craig." Check local listings to see where you can tune in.
