This book is TERRIFYING! It tells the story of an affluent family who becomes the victims of squatters, using the system against them. The under-aged squatters are a couple who notice people in their lives scamming their way through life and decide to learn about tenant rights. The male scammer uses charm and social engineering to gather all the data he needs to learn about his targets. They pose as 'renters' and provide false documentation when confronted by the owners claiming they responded to a craigslist ad and have paid a deposit to move in. When the police are called the false documents hold up to scrutiny and the officers, aware of tenants rights, cannot force the young couple out and the actual owners of the home have no choice but to let the 'tenants' stay while they vacate the home in hopes of a quick resolution that doesn't come fast enough.
What is so terrifying about this book is that it could actually happen. I've read news articles about prior tenants gone bad and this book details how it could actually happen to you in the home you're currently living in. This book can be used as a way to educate yourself so you can protect your home OR as a handbook on how to pull the same scam. BEWARE!
