How MAFS star Mishel Karen lost over $100k from an online love scam
Manage episode 354525917 series 2392514
Mishel Karen was a participant on season 7 of Married at First Sight Australia.
Mishel didn’t find the love she was looking for on the show, and a quick google will tell you a lot about Mishel’s life since the show ended. She’s now an only fans star and so far, she’s still single.
Mishel Karen became the victim of a sophisticated scam from Everrise Brokers, through which she lost a large amount of her own money and friends and relatives of hers lost money to after taking her advice to trust her scammers.
Sadly, many people are too embarrassed to report these crimes, but as you’re about to find out, even though Mishel now realises what’s happened to her and is speaking out about it, that doesn’t mean anyone has swung into action to shut the scam down and protect the rest of us.
