Placer County Sheriff’s detectives are seeking victims in a Craigslist real estate scam run by a Meadow Vista man. This week, detectives arrested William Frank Lordier, 54, with assistance from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Office, where one of Lordier’s victims resides. The former California real estate agent was selling timeshares on Craigslist. Unknowing victims gave Lordier their bank account information, which he then used to take money from those accounts for his own personal gain. So far, detectives have located multiple victims in Los Angeles, Nevada County, and as far away as Oregon and Washington. Detective Jason Doolittle describes the scams.
Anyone who may have fallen victim to Lordier’s scam is asked to contact Detective Jason Doolittle at (530) 889-7844.
