LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- A Southwest Florida resident is out nearly $25,000 after falling victim to a supposed real estate investment company.
The 58-year-old victim told Lee County Sheriff's deputies that he attended a seminar in May of 2012, where he was advised that if he invested in the company holding the seminar, they would mentor him in real estate and he could watch his investment grow.
The victim signed an agreement and wrote the company a check for $24,997, which was cashed the next day. The victim was promised three-day seminars and house-buying retreats, in addition to access to a mentor.
He received none of what he was promised and his calls were not returned.
LCSO continues the investiagtion.
