“My sister has nothing to her name but a card table and a mattress,” says LouAnn who claims Lois is “destitute” after “throwing away” her 37-year marriage and being swindled out of her retirement savings - upward of $100,000.

Candice says, “My mom has become addicted to online romance scams.”
Lois admits she has never met any of her digital suitors in person. She admits she hasn’t had much luck with online love, but claims she is currently engaged to “Paul,” who she insists is a “good, honest man.”
“Paul is currently in Nigeria taking care of his uncle’s estate,” says Lois.
