Some people have been spreading rumors that Bonnie Jo is the Chapman's step-daughter. Bonnie Jo claims that this is hurtful to her mostly because she knows her mother wouldn't stand for that kind of information being spread.

The family also recently had to take to Facebook to warn fans of potential scams.

"This is so sick," added another Twitter user.

Another said, "So sorry Dog that this reprehensible situation occurred. I hope that whoever has done this gets caught and pays the price. You Can Run But You Can’t Hide!"

Other fans echoed the sentiment that this would be a good hunt for their show.

One Twitter fan said, "Just out of curiosity are you that dense to steal especially from @DogBountyHunter's family? You might as well sleep with both eyes open for the rest of your life now! Hell I'm no bounty hunter but if I was around Colorado you better bet your ass I'd be looking for you too!"
