to find a new home
Hi, I'm the Gonzales family, we lost the house where we were renting. We lost everything. Thanks SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Three kids ranging in age from 8 to 15 years old are spending their summer break in their van after their parents were duped out of $10,000. That's everything the Gonzalez family had saved. They thought they were renting a house in South San Francisco. But three days after moving in, they were evicted by the actual landlord.
The family is now showering at the houses of family or friends while trying to figure out how to get back on their feet.
When asked why it's been so hard, 11-year-old Elizabeth Treminio told ABC7, "Because it's uncomfortable."
Parked right outside the house where they lived for a total of three days. Elizabeth remembers waking up to hear someone at the door, telling her mom they had to move out.
Luz: "When that landlord came knocking on your door and said you guys needed to leave what did you think?"
Elizabeth: "That we were gonna live in the streets, I was scared."
That landlord she describes is the legitimate landlord for the property.
Victor Gonzales had already paid someone else, so they could move in and to change the locks.
