Did it seem like they had an inaccurate and wildly exaggerated impression of the wealth of typical US Americans?

It seems like a common problem, where they don't understand the true cost of living and think someone here losing $600 in a scam is more like losing $20.

Will you try to get a restraining order of some kind as soon as you decide to leave? Are your parents in a community where they might et the help of others to do you harm?

That is terrible. Here in Minneapolis, they are cops, and they have guns (US, of course...). The complete other extreme, which is equally awful.
