Thank you both for replying. This is a very smart young man and is getting better...he is trying to take some college classes cannot see clearly. This is a very aggressive scammer, it has been at my son's throat for now 1 1/2 year. They have asked him to send smart phones and other electronics, I had a postal nvestigator on them. They disappeared for a while and them again with a slightly different name Sarah Brown shows up on Google hangouts.
I have beem contacted by another man on Google + claiming to be victim as well. He is meeting with TC district attorney and asked my son if he wanted to join in prosecuting these scammers, I will have them contact me.
My son has been hospitalized a few times, especially when it first started texting this scam in 2017. He was at the point of selling our furniture to have money for Sara Bell. He was hospitalized but didnt really help the delusion.
You are correct about denial, it s incredible how they are manipulating him into getting these gift cards...every day they speak to him...they are relentless. He gets very stressed out about being able to provide for 'her'. It is difficult to remove his phone, he has isolated himself already due to the illness, I can't take everything away.
