We are a family of three and are facing life on the street very soon. We have been the victims of rental fraud and have until the end of the month to vacate the apartment in which we are currently living. The person from whom we rented lied and told us she was an agent for the owner, which was never the case. She has now disappeared with our deposit.
We cannot afford the rental the new owner is asking and without our deposit we cannot afford the deposit the owner wants. Also, in order to find a new place we will have to put down a deposit which we don't have.
We have been through so much and this is just the last in a long line of financial difficulties that have struck. We have a small baby and just don't know what we will do.
