The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office set up a special hotline number for those who are victims of “house stealing”.
The number for the Economic Crime Complaint Hotline is 215-686-9901. Callers should leave a message and a number where investigators may contact them.
Saying that that the defendants “are intent on ripping people off by villainy and treachery,” District Attorney Lynne Abraham held a news conference to release the results of a Grand Jury investigation. Fifteen people have been charged in conjunction with 82 properties that were sold illegally.
