          Parents Who Say They Fear Teen’s Foreign Online ‘Boyfriend’ Could Be A Predator Speak To Him For First Time


          October 18, 2016

          Tonia and Troy say they fear their 18-year-old daughter’s online “boyfriend” is “grooming” her to be a sex slave and fear that if she travels to Argentina to meet him, they may never see her again. Troy says he’s offered for the young man to come visit his daughter in his home, but claims he always has an excuse as to why he can’t come. Andres says he has safety concerns about visiting Maddy, in part, because of the accusations her parents have made about him.

          However, Maddy says she’s in love with Andres and she’s certain that she’s not being scammed. She says her parents’ accusations are “ridiculous” and that they can’t stop her from going to visit Andres. She says he’s offered to visit her but she suggested going to Argentina because “I figured it was a better option.”
