Two years ago, Larry Revel thought he was going to lose his home, so when a flyer came in the mail promising help, he jumped at the offer.

“They would get me in a credit repair program and that they would help me get my house back and that I would have the first option to buy my house back,” said Revels.

Revels signed his house over to Walkwood Properties. The company paid him $80,000 and then started charging him $1,000 a month to live there.

Revels was being scammed. A year later, he got a visit from the FBI.

“They said that we were possibly or were being scammed, and that these people were under investigation,” Revels said.
