Marcy and Todd say their mom, Renee, has fallen in love with a catfish.
“'Thomas’ promised my mom that he will sweep her off her feet. They’re going to vacation and travel the world together,” Marcy says.

“This gentleman by the name of ‘Tom’ has taken over her life,” Todd adds. “He has promised to come here, marry her, give her the wedding of her dreams.”

The siblings say they’ve been told “Tom” is worth millions of dollars but is stuck in Africa, and every time he tries to leave, something prevents him. And, they claim Renee, who is currently married to her husband of 35 years, Harold, has given “Tom” thousands of dollars and has been left broke – but when they’ve tried to tell her, she doesn’t listen and has even told them they are “dead to her.”
“For three years now, my mom has been scammed,” says Marcy, who disinvited her mom to her wedding.
Todd says, “She just doesn’t get it.”
