"An Online Hate Group is Stalking Us and Ruining Our Lives"

Amanda and Dave claim they are being terrorized by "an online hate group," and they fear for their lives. They say it all started when they closed their children’s consignment store, and a disgruntled ex-employee, Cari, started a group on Facebook. Amanda and Dave say they since have received death threats, been followed and had their home vandalized, leaving them afraid to even leave the house. The couple faces Cari on Dr. Phil’s stage. Can he sort through the accusations and help calm the hostility? Cari says she created the online group as a service to the community, but former criminal prosecutor Loni Coombs has a strong warning for her -- has Cari gone too far? And, can Amanda and Dave repair their reputations?
