Sophie says she believes her father, Jerry, is being scammed online.
“My dad is very gullible. I do think he’s lonely. Sending out his money, I think that is a cry for help,” she says. “If these people were real, they shouldn’t have to ask for money.”
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?
She claims that a few months ago, she heard a phone call between one of the women her father met on a website and her father which raised a red flag for her.
“It didn’t sound like a real person in my opinion,” Sophie says. “It almost sounded like a voice recorder, like robotic. It sounded fake.”
Sophie says her parents have a “toxic” relationship and it’s time they move on from each other. And, she says she wants her dad to “stop falling for the scams.”
