Maddy says that Andres has promised her a place to live, money to spend and even assured Maddy he would assist her with getting schooling once she arrives in Argentina. Maddy says the reason she came on the Dr. Phil show is so she can prove her family wrong, because she says she knows there is no way her online boyfriend is the sex trafficking criminal her family believes he could be.
