United States: Forced to flee their home after fraud

United States: Forced to flee their home after fraud

An elderly couple from Georgia were evicted from their home after a fraudster claimed ownership of their home using fake documents.

Charles and Charmaine Allman have lived in their Stone Mountain home for nearly 20 years. However, on Tuesday morning, authorities asked the couple to vacate the house as it did not belong to them.

“They made us feel like settlers. I threw away my things like garbage,” said M.me Allman in an interview with WSB-TV.

The woman said she and her husband started receiving letters about a second mortgage they allegedly took out, which they did not do.

“We don't have a mortgage anymore,” he said. The situation took a turn for the worse on Tuesday when someone claimed to have bought the house after foreclosure.

Charles Allman was arrested by the police after he refused to leave his residence.

Widespread fraud

According to American real estate attorney Richard Alembic, it's a type of scam that's increasingly prevalent in the Atlanta area.

“It's very easy to forge a document and file it. It's a big thing these days because electronic filing, electronic filing of deeds is so easy. It's very easy to file fake documents,” he explained.

The latter held that there was no jurisdiction against an act of unjust confiscation or fraud. Even if a person can prove they have been the victim of this type of fraud, a judge can issue an order to compel this action.
