man leaves house for walk with dogs, comes back to find house occupied. now who whould do that?

Well ain’t this the pits?

Not the first time this sort of thing has happened here.  Another case some six months ago.  Some scam artist (? still not sure) rents or sells a property.
The buyers are almost always from Europe (some from Ireland) but generally Eastern Europe.  They hardly speak English, or claim to speak none.  Then how could they have bought or rented a house or apt.? Oh well, the estate agent miraculously spoke their mother tongue. Uh huh.  And of course locks changed. It never occurs to these folks that they are moving into a house fully furnished and having evidence that someone is living there. Cloths might be a dead giveaway.
I think they know quite well what’s up and what they are doing.  Declared a civil matter means it will take awhile to get the property back.

Thankfully in the USA, guns are a bit easier to come by then they are here.  Perhaps that explains why this doesn’t happen in the US. If it does, it’s been unreported far as I’m aware.

The article did not say if this involved Gypsies or not.  Yes I might very well be wrong in saying, I bet it did.  Cos it’s exactly the sort of thing they get up to.


Man takes dogs for walk… and returns to find locks changed and a family living in his home

By Daily Mail Reporter

George Pope, 72, was unable to get into his council house because the locks were changed.  Mr Pope left his home to take his dogs out to nearby Parsloes Park last Thursday, September 16.  The arthritis sufferer, who needs a stick to walk, started feeling ill and decided to stay at a friend’s house until he was well enough to go home.  But when he returned to his house on Saturday morning, he was stunned to discover his locks had been changed.

He claims a man then walked up the path to his house and accosted him.  ‘I said, “This is my place”. But he said, “This is our property and we intend to stay here unless you go to court”. It made me feel ill.’

Mr Pope immediately called the council and police.  But he claims they told him the new occupants could not be evicted because they were themselves victims of a scam.

Mr Pope said police claimed the residents, who he believes are from Lithuania, had paid £3,000 to a bogus estate agent to rent the property themselves for six months. 

The retired Dagenham Ford worker, who was forced to stay with friends, said: ‘Police told me it looked like a civil matter.

‘But the squatters were using my home, my gas and my electricity - it’s absolutely disgraceful.’

Mr Pope went back to his house on Monday morning to find all his belongings had been thrown out.

Neighbours then helped the him gather up his documents, photographs and clothes.

Mr Pope suspects illegal estate agents of occupying buildings and letting them for money.

‘I had been out for just two-and-a-half days. Someone must have been watching me,’ he said.

‘The rear door had been levered out with screwdrivers - that’s how they got in.

Mr Pope, who has lived in the house for four years, was able to move back into his home last night after the family fled but said he is now scared to be there because next door is also being occupied by squatters.

He also claims some of his possessions, including a washing machine and an electric cooker have been taken and that the electricity system has been tampered with.

‘The wiring has been ripped out and there are burn marks,’ he said.

‘The whole experience has been really traumatic.’

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
