Homeowner: I was duped out of $90k by a phony contractor - 2014-08-18
Marji Prefontane bought the house on Cedarbrook NE in an auction. Her plan was to rehabilitate the home and sell for it a profit. It was her way of investing her money and helping secure her retirement.
"We hired a guy who we thought was a licensed general contractor who actually presented himself as a licensed general contractor," Prefontane said.
Prefontane admits she's new at house flipping, but placed trust in whom she thought was a licensed professional, David Childers.
