          What A Private Investigator Uncovers About Teen’s Online Foreign ‘Boyfriend’


          October 18, 2016

          Maddy, 18, says no one is going to stop her from going to Argentina to be with her online “boyfriend” Andres, whom she’s known for 14 months. She says she’s madly in love with him and that he’s promised to help with a place to live, money to spend and getting enrolled in school.

          However, Maddy’s parents say they fear that she is being “groomed” by Andres and worry that if she goes to visit him, she may “be sold as a sex slave.”
