Steve, 53, says he met "Kelly" online in 2012, then got legally married to her long-distance, because she's living in Nigeria until she eventually inherits $25.6 million from her parents, who were killed in a car crash.

"I just love her," Steve says about the woman he's never met. "She is very beautiful and warm, kind, caring and loving."

Until she gets her inheritance, Steve believes he is helping to support her. "I've sent Kelly about $103,000 in the last 29 months," he reports. "I've not met Kelly, but it doesn't matter. I love her just the same. She has an inheritance coming, and I've always wanted to be a millionaire, so it's like a match made in heaven."

Is he being scammed? Watch the video above and see what happens when Dr. Phil digs for answers on his show on Wednesday.
