Real estate scam robs Florida mom of $63K in life savings
A mother of two is speaking out about how she fell victim to a real estate scam that resulted in the loss of $63,000 in savings amid her home buying journey.
Patricia Verlino, a south Florida resident, thought she was making a down payment on her dream home which she had spent years working and saving up for. Unfortunately for her, somebody had seemingly infiltrated the process and used an elaborate scheme to steal the money.
Patricia Verlino spoke with Fox News about what she described as a “dark” situation, explaining that this is “the worst thing you can go through.”
Verlino worked multiple jobs for years to save up the $63,000 to make a down payment on a condo for her and her daughters.
