A man in Golden Valley, Arizona sold a home on Craigslist... but the home that he sold didn't even belong to him nor did he have any right to sell it! The 35-year-old man is facing felony charges relating to fraud. The man reportedly set up a "lease to own" deal on a home that he was leasing. He made a deal and took $3,000.00 from the victim -- a woman in her 50's.
When the woman and her husband arrived at their "new home," the keys didn't unlock the door. They tried tirelessly to contact the man who made the deal with them but found out -- from the home's owner -- that the house wasn't for sale and that the man who had been living there had no right to change his lease.
Police found the man inside the home -- the one that he sold -- and they say that he actually admitted to the scam.
