Woman Shown Evidence She’s Been Catfished Asks, ‘Then Who’s Been Texting Me And Calling Me?’

On Tuesday's Dr. Phil, “My Mom Is in Love with a Man Who Doesn’t Exist” Karen’s daughter, Mindy, says she is sure her mother is being catfished by “Thomas,” a man she has never met in person or even had a video chat with. Karen, who says she believes that “Thomas” is real – and in love with her – admits she gave him $10,000. Mindy wants to know why “Thomas,” who claims to be a successful oil rig engineer, would need her mother’s money. Karen says that “Thomas” told her he is stuck on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico and that he sent her photos as proof. When Dr. Phil shows her how the images have been digitally manipulated, Karen says she agrees they’re fake. “He sent you a phony picture on a phony rig in a phony location,” says Dr. Phil, offering Karen further proof that the oil rig “Thomas” claims he is working is not – and has never been – in the Gulf of Mexico. When Karen says, “Then who’s been texting me and calling me?” what is Dr. Phil’s response? Then, on Wednesday’s conclusion, “Karen’s Catfish: Will She Believe the Truth,” Dr. Phil introduces Karen to the man whose photos were stolen and used by her alleged catfish. Is she ready to accept that “Thomas” isn’t who he claims to be? Check your local listing to find out where you can watch.
