One international scam artist has hit pay dirt with a woman who has sent him more than $1 million because she thinks they’re in love.

In a preview of an episode of “Dr. Phil,” a woman named Sarah has been duped out of an unbelievable amount as she tries to help the man she met online. After two marriages, Sarah wasn’t ready to give up on love, so she signed up for a dating a site.

Unfortunately, her online profile made her a target for a man who claims to go by the name Chris Olsen. According to her, he’s an Italian businessman that moved to the United States where he had two daughters in a previous relationship.

Let’s get right to it. Who’s shocked? We all knew he was going to walk after he didn’t get indicted. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke very eloquently at the press conference today, but that doesn’t help that nothing has changed in Ferguson, Mo or any other city across the country.

This isn’t an attack on him, but at what point will African-American, Black People or whatever we’re called today get justice? Click Here!

After a vociferous outcry over the high-profile deaths of unarmed Black men who died at the hands of White police officers in Ferguson, Mo., and New York City, President Barack Obama on Monday called for sweeping reforms of police tactics in cities across the nation.

I had twins from my first marriage and a great coparenting relationship with my ex. I met Rico Gray, the man who would eventually become my second husband, on a blind date in 2009.
