We meet Barb’s housekeeper, Vera (Dave Hughes), who also has her eye on Barb’s hard-earned money.
Jan and Carolyn are left heartbroken, while Barb sets plans to meet her long-distance love, Carey, in Houston, Texas.

Hear from real life victims as they relive their experiences being ‘love scammed’, and the methods these conmen used to lure them in.
