Largo Rental Scam Victim's Fund

$1,700 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 6 months
Created June 21, 2018
My name is Bryan Walker. I am one of the victims of the Largo rental scam. Myself along with many other families fell victim to these terrible people. Most of the victims are displaced with small children. Unfortunately, the money stolen was meant for securing a new residence for these families. One family was recently married and had packed up their belongings and driven from Indiana to find, after days of staying hotel, they had been scammed. Many families and single mother's are literally living in hotels. Myself, I am separated from my wife and three small girls (10, 7, 10 months). Because of being scammed out of the house, my wife and kids had to go out of state to stay with family. These are just a few examples. Please see below links for more on the story.  

This is an absolutely heartbreaking situation. Another victim and myself have started this Go Fund Me page after many people who heard the story suggested to reach out to the community for support to help get the victim's lives back together. This money will be instrumental in getting the displaced families into homes and help those who are able to stay in their current living situations by providing the rent they lost. 

I watched the heartache and felt it personally as I watched family after family and victim after victim show up at this house on Tuesday expecting to have a home.  With this fund we will help as many of the victims as we can. The more money raised, the more help we can give.  Please consider donating and sharing our campaign. Thank you.
