On June 19th, my husband and I arrived at 1091 Lexington court and realized we were scammed, amongst other families. We have dreamt living in Florida for the last 2 years, and decided to make our dreams into reality. We found our dream home, had a big back yard for our dogs which was a huge plus. So we decided to apply for jobs in Saint Petersburg. We both landed nice jobs and placed our notices in our previous jobs here in Indiana. We packed up all our items in a uhaul and our little family took a long 13 hours to Florida. Our original move in date was for June 15th, but the landlord “Nicole Johnson” stated they needed a few more days due to her pregnancy complications, we both have huge hearts so we told Nicole that was fine but we would be using our last of our money saved up for hotel cost. On Tuesday June 19th is when we arrived to Lexington ct to get the keys to our new beautiful home, but finding out it was all a scam. We have lost well over a thousand dollars in just moving expenses, plus $1,300 lost in the deposit for the house. We now are living in a camper with our two dogs, and trying to find a new home to live in and get back on our feet. Please if you can donate $5,$10, $20, to help us, that would be great. Thank you and god bless.
