Woe to the deer who is courted by the charismatic wolf, or to the fly who is not immune to the sweet, sultry songs of the spider.”
– Nenia Campbell
Season 2 is back on air, and my first guest for 2021 is Debby Montgomery Johnson who has an amazing story about being scammed online by a romance scammer.
It certainly makes for an interesting interview to release over Valentine’s weekend!
How to Avoid Romance Scammers in your Personal Life
Instead of being crippled with shame and not talking about her experience however, – something that women tend to do – Debby bravely wrote her best selling book “The Woman behind the Smile.” The result of her sharing her story? She has become a sought after speaker, with appearances on “The Dr. Oz Show”, CBS This Morning, The Mel Robbins Show, The Tamron Hall Show, WPEC CBS Channel 12 and WPTV NBC Channel 5, in addition to being featured in the Palm Beach Post. She is regularly called upon by reporters for expert commentary about romance scammers and relationship fraud.
Debby shares her personal experience with a love that turned into betrayal and financial disaster, (she lost over 1 million dollars over a 2 year period) and she removes the mask of shame and shows others how to do the same. Many of us have something we’re hiding, something we’re ashamed of, something that through no fault of our own or through our own making keeps us hidden from each other and the world.
