Seller: I Kept $ Because Homeless Man A Pain
A volunteer with an anti-poverty program says he kept the money he made from selling a homeless man’s Bayville house because the man caused him major problems.
Wallace Doman, a former real estate agent and the housing director of Solutions To End Poverty Soon, tells The Associated Press he felt no obligation to turn over money from the sale of Doug Hardman’s house after Hardman signed it over to him for $50.
Doman says Hardman’s erratic behavior and complaints to authorities led to the loss of Doman’s job, and his being investigated by police and state real estate regulators.
Hardman, who lives in Tent City, an encampment of homeless people in the woods of Lakewood, is suing Doman, alleging he cheated Hardman out of his home.
