I’m watching a DVRed Dr. Phil, and it’s a nightmare.
This woman, Norma, got catfished by someone named Richard Randall who claimed to have been in North Carolina, but is now in Ghana. He allegedly went to Ghana because her son allegedly threatened him.
Norma believes Richard is real. She sent him over $330K, two luxury cars, a Ford Focus and her bedroom furniture to Ghana.
Norma’s daughter Tammy doesn’t believe any of this. She tells “Richard” off, telling him he’s a con artist.
Of course, he’s a con artist. He’s stolen so much of her mother’s money, she can’t afford to pay rent. She has to live with her brother-in-law.
That’s where TLAMs come into play. Do you know what a TLAM is? It’s called the Tomahawk Land Attack Missile, and its what the United States of America, specifically the United States Navy, uses to kick the door down when we go to war.
Whomever this Richard Randall character is needs to see some TLAMs up close and personal. These guys are picking on old, lonely women and stealing their life savings. Dr. Phil is going ballistic, because she isn’t even acknowledging the character Richard Randall stole another person’s identity. It turns out the pictures he used are of a gay man. Dr. Phil contacted the gay man and he talked to the woman. She was smiling before, but now she’s not.
Now she and her daughter are in the audience. The daughter is weeping because the mother still doesn’t get the fact she’s been conned. She said she loved this character more than she loved her deceased husband I almost cried. Well, not quite. When it comes to stuff like this, it means the good ‘ol USA needs to get their money back.
