Tiffany Doty says she plans to file a report with the local police. She believes the woman gave a fake name, she said, and that her family was scammed by someone who has been doing the same thing to other people for a long time.
"We are going to file charges," Tiffany Doty said. "I'm sure there are cyberstalking laws, fraud. I personally am just wiped out. I am beyond wiped out, but my son wanted her found, and he is not a vindictive person."
Aside from finding justice, the Doty family is facing immediate financial struggles and is asking the public for help. Through their website, HealThomas.com, they are asking for donations to help them save their home. Both Tiffany and her husband are out of work, she told ABC.
"We were a normal family," Tiffany Doty said. "We had great jobs, and two years worth of savings, everything that you need. Our house is going to be auctioned on Jan. 11."
