Stacey says she introduced her mom, Gail, to online dating about four years ago, and a few days after Gail set up her profile, she received an email from a man named “Fallon Galvin.” “I immediately knew it was a scam,” Stacey says. Stacey says her mom had a relationship with "Fallon" for about a year and has since met two other men online, “Matt Hurley,” and someone using photos of Vin Diesel but going by the name “Mark Sinclair.” “My mom has sent almost $250,000 to these scammers,” Stacey says. She claims that Gail, 68, has even gone without her diabetes medication, heat and water, and left 2 feet of water in her basement because she couldn’t afford to fix the busted pipe because she sent money to “Matt Hurley.” “They have ruined her financially, and she’s broke.” Gail says her relationship with “Matt Hurley” couldn’t be clearer – and after four years – she would know if he wasn’t the “caring and truthful” man she fell in love with.
