Meeting the Moroccan mother???

Well, my friend is headed to Morocco July 31 for a 4 week visit to finally meet the man she trusts with everything??, but whom she has never met other than online. He has promised to do anything she wants, show her the best time ever, and would never pressure her for any kind of sexual relationship as he is such a wonderful man. Yeah right. My question is....he has told her he will take her to meet his mother and I'm curious as to how this mother will feel knowing he is 'romancing' and possibly marrying a woman old enough to be his mother??

They are probably close to the same age and I know that would be very weird for me, but my friend seems not to have even thought about this. I would like to think that Zachariae Jaddal is not the scammer I think he is, but it is just all to much like all the other stories on here. I cannot get her to even consider that it all might not be above board, because he has shown her all sorts of documentation about himself. I don't understand how she cannot realize that all the pictures he sends - at least on FB - are the same ones he's been using for several years and just recycles them. How do you not recognize the same picture of the same camel over and over. I also asked her to ask him who takes the pictures that are obviously not selfies? Also, should my worst fears come to pass (and I think they will) when she gets him here to marry him (and I fear she will), when she is 70 and he is 44, and his own mother is older also, is he obligated to support his own mother before his American wife? Or will the younger brother take that obligation?

I cannot say anything against this man, and have resigned myself to the fact that Judy will most likely become yet another victim. I've given her all the warnings I can without just saying she's taking a huge risk. She does NOT want to hear that she might be making a mistake and swears it's just because she wants to see Morocco, which I doubt she even thought of before he swept in. Sorry this is long, but I'm just so frustrated by her complete lack of awareness.

Thank you all for being here, for listening and for responding. I know I've not personally been a victim, but am so grateful to have found this site, even if it doesn't do her any good.
