On another episode of Dr Phil about love scams, we meet an American called Steve who sells his blood twice a week to send money to a wife he’s never met.
Steve, a 53-year-old accountant from the US has sent over $100,000 to his wife ‘Kelly’ in Nigeria, that he met online in 2012.
He has been supporting her financially for the past 29 months, until she can get her inheritance from her dead parents, who she says owe her $25.6m.
Steve said: “I’ve not met Kelly, but it doesn’t matter. I love her just the same. She has an inheritance coming, and I’ve always wanted to be a millionaire, so it’s like a match made in heaven.”
As with the story of the woman who sent $1.4m, it offers a quite remarkable look into the lives of people who are in the clutches of a romance scam.
