How do I find the article that was in the newspaper? What is the Joshua Forum. I was trying to contact Lana Smeenk and haven't been able too. Was trying to figure out if what is going on. Please let me know. Also I want to know which 12 properties. Thank you.

My boyfriend & I were coned by Lana. We purchased a house in the Cleburne area and all the while we thought we were purchasing the home from her. Come to find out the house was in foreclosure. This happened Sept 2009. We, chose to move and not be homeless. We, took cash for keys from the foreclosure attorney. Everytime we asked when can we purchase this home she always had an excuse to why we couldn't right now. She is a liar. Do not trust her. We, even contacted the DA's office & the police department. DO NOT TRUST HER!!!!

She took me for over $19,000. We was under contract to purchase home and our credit was not good enought so we was on a "rent-to-own" contract. Until one day a man came to my door and told me that I did not own home nor did she. We had 15 days to move. We took a "cash for keys" and moved. Later found out that the house was sold on the court house steps 3 weeks prior. I went to the Cleburne Police Department and the Joshua PD and filed reports. Now it is coming out all about it. She deserves everything coming to her.
