A family member that is not on title to my property and does not have my power of attorney, try to steal my property by using a recorded forged deed, and sale it to some people who open escrow, (alot of people have been trying to buy this property to build apartment units on it) while in escrow the buyer found out that there was something wrong with the forged deed and that the seller did not own the property and that I owned the property. The buyer sued the people who was trying to sale the property to them for quit title and specific performance, the buyer sued me for the same thing wanting me to give the crooks a good deed so they could buy the property from the crooks while they are still in escrow. I am repersenting my self and their attorney told me I will loose the case because they have a sign contract thats binding and the laws are in their clients favor, and there lawyer said a lot of thing making me believe that II did not have a chance to win, and he said when I loose his client willl get all the property for free and I will get nothing, so they will give me half of what the property is worth in cash, they said its better to get half of $250,000 than not get anything. .I do not owe any thing my property. So yesterday I signed an agreement to sale the property to the buyer for $125.000 loosing at lease $125,000 if I can't prove fraud. please tell me what they would have had to of done or said to prove fraud. Think You
I had a document examer look at the document and he said someone signed the document other than me.
They are trying to get me to execute a deed to them today.
