          Parents Claim Daughter Is ‘Lazy, Manipulative Moocher’ Who Has Stolen Thousands From Family


          December 8, 2016

          Linda and Gary say it’s always constant drama with their 24-year-old daughter, Lyzzy. The parents admit they spoiled her growing up and now fear it may have backfired, because they claim Lyzzy is an entitled manipulator who has stolen more than $15,000 from family members and refuses to move out of their home.

          “My daughter is a lazy, manipulative moocher,” says Linda.

          Gary adds, “She drives my wife and myself crazy.”

          The parents claim that Lyzzy stole Gary’s identity, opened a few credit cards in his name and racked up over $7,500 in charges, and that she took her disabled aunt’s debit card and spent over $7,800.

          “I don’t trust her at all. Everything that she says is a lie,” says Linda.

          Lyzzy admits that she’s stolen the money and has an attitude with her parents, but says it’s not her fault. “If I’m being a brat, that’s my parents’ fault because that’s how they raised me,” Lyzzy says.
