“It’s an everyday occurrence,” says Jim, claiming that the 18-year-old “scammed” them into buying her $900 in tools for a job he says they later found out never existed.
“Days later we found out that Madie had returned all the tools for cash. I don’t think she cares,” he says.
The couple also says their daughter’s behaviors are out of control in other ways
, claiming she steals, manipulates people, runs away from home, is destructive and is verbally and physically abusive.

to a psychiatric hospital for care twice as a teenager.
