FORT MYERS, Fla. - A Southwest Florida man accused of duping homeowners out of thousands will soon go to trial.
Erick Heckler is facing more than 60 counts of mortgage fraud stemming from a scheme seven years ago. Investigators say Heckler used bogus buyers to get home and then leased them to people. But, those bad buyers never made mortgage payments and people kept getting kicked out of their homes.
One of the victims says its about time Heckler pay for his crimes.
"From the beginning, I was dead set on following this through the end. I just want to see how it all comes down", said Pam Turner.
Heckler is scheduled to go to trial on August 24th.
