Scammed by my Real Estate Agent Ex in Buying & Selling Homes Posted April 15 · Report reply Help! My ex who is also a real estate agent said she found a great home that belonged to her sister and brother in law that we could buy and flip and earn a profit on. She said I would need to take 14k out of my 401k and that would be my portion of the investment. I signed what i think was a fake purchase agreement some documents she provided me. I gave her the 14k. Soon after this we were involved in a domestic dispute where I decided to end the relationship after she struck me. The fact of the matter is that the home was never sold and no flip occurred but I never received my money back. Through text, she agreed to only give me only 5k back stating that the rest she would keep being that she felt she was to be paid for funds spent during our relationship for personal use. That being said, I never received ANY money back at all and I feel she abused her real estate licence and my trust to steal from me. Is there a way that I could fight to receive my money back? Im not sure if an attorney would charge me more than what Im fighting for. Please help I feel at a loss and now having to pay back that money to my 401k that was never used for the purpose intended because of the neglect of this real estate agent who I trusted.
