During Jan 2014, my husband died. It was a big loss for me and for my family. During the month of May, I have managed to save a horse but another one passed away. So, I decided to own horses afterwards. Well, I started searching for affordable land that had sufficient acreage. Soon, I came across an advertisement where it was stated about an offer of 53.24 acres. That land was listed under $15k range.
When I went for such an add, it gave me some kind of feeling that my offer may get accepted. Soon, I also made the down payment. Well,, I paid for that property for 2 years. I was also looking for the next land close to the property that I had purchased. This could have helped me a lot to initiate the process for buying it. When I started looking for such a land, I found one with the same area. However, something went wrong there. The next one is not another land! This is the same land that I was paying for a year or so.
During my next payment, I asked the seller about it. And he completely denied that such land was listed on any website before. I have also asked him to give more details about how I can go for that land for which I was paying. I was desperate to go to that land. So, I requested the seller about it several times.
I have never managed to receive the reply and most of the time, the seller was out of the home town. In that listing the seller has not even mentioned that there is a prison situated close to the main Hwy. When I came to know about it, I asked him in a text message and the seller replied me that “I don’t even know about the existence of any prison”. Before that he never mentioned about such thing. Finally I came to know that he is a lying.
Even the longitude and latitude he offered me doesn’t get seen on the mapping device. And not even the GPS. He also offered me a GEO ID which was not even assigned for his name. It was not even located anywhere near to the land. Afterwards, he mentioned me to go for the court house in order to get right kind of assistance. Though he sold that land to me, he doesn’t have any responsibility to show me where the land was. He has not even offered me any detail about how to go for that land. He has not even told me about any landmark, town history and town events. He doesn’t even know things related to Sierra Blanca located in Texas. So, how he could know about the prison?
For just anyone who wishes to build a house at this place, having such information is very important. There will be hardly anyone who would like to build a home and start a family close to a prison. He stated that he was not really aware of that prison and land. However, I was paying for it for a year or so as per the contract.
There are chances that someone else might be paying for the same land for which I am also paying for last two years. As of Aug 26th 2016, I have paid $7,760 for such land. To buy this land, I sold my solo home and now facing a loss of $30 k plus. Now I have become homeless. The only roof that has my ultimate shelter is my truck’s roof.
