A Santa Maria family was almost the victim of a foreclosure scam. They said they gave a $2,500 check to 41-year-old Irma Diaz. The Santa Barbara County District Attorney said Diaz would obtain the power of attorney from victims whose homes were in or nearing default.
So far, two victims have been discovered but investigators believe there could be more.
Maria Vasquez, almost scammed, said, "I don't feel good because I lost my house and my stuff. That's not fair."
KSBY News wants to make clear Diaz is not the reason the Vasquez's lost their home. The $2,500 check never cleared. But the family believes she wasted precious time that could have been spent on preventing foreclosure.
KSBY's Monica Quintero will have more on this story on KSBY News tonight at 6:00.
