          “My mom always told me don’t trust strangers,” says Josie’s 19-year-old son, Anthony. “Victor is really a stranger,” he adds.

          Josie’s older sister, Carmen, and her best friend, Angela, both say they think Victor is scamming Josie, and that Josie is acting like a teenager where Victor is concerned.
