I gave money to...

I gave money to an individual to pay for purchase or repair on homes with the contract providing the addresses of the homes in which I was investing. This individual was just starting out when I invested a couple years ago but he bought into too many homes --couldn't get them all fixed in a reasonable time and the finance company he was using took all his homes. My money was mis-appropriated to pay his debts on other homes. I want him to set up a payment plan for me. Any chance of doing something legally?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Some homes were in SC and some in NC

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not by me

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I don't think so.

nevermind. this seems like another scam I've gotten myself into.

Hold, please. It is not a scam.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

It is possible to enter into a payment agreement if your friend is willing to do so. You would want to make sure it is in writing.

We can discuss more if you want to do so. I am willing to continue with any questions you may have.
