On March 2, 2008 my wife and I had answered a classified ad in the Arizona Republic for a home for rent. We went and saw this wonderful family home located in a very quiet nieghborhood so we decided to move in. Come to find out that sonya had at least 24 properties that she claims to have. That is where we met the other party involved, Vera. So sonya showed Vera her other two properties that Sonya said she had. On March 7th we gave Sonya Mona Doolan $500 for security deposit with the agreement that we would give her another $1100.00 upon move in on the first of April 2008. She did let us know after we had asked her if the house was in foreclosure or not, and she did admit that it was still indeed in foreclosure but for us not to worry, that she was going to purchase the home the following week. I have already made an offer on the house for $300,000, and Im going down there next week to give them the monies because the bank had accepted her offer. On march 27th, she had given us the ok to go ahead and move in so we did. We gave her $1100.00 prior to us moving in and she was very assuring that everything was fine with the house and that she did agree to give us a years lease which she did not brandish at the time of move in. Two days after move in we had received a notice on our garage door stating from Michael Bosco, Jr., Attorney at law that the house is up for public auction on June 5th, 2008. We tried to contact Ms Doolan but the # that we have called her at from the initial contact turned out to be a teenagers cell #. Finally we got a hold of her at another # that she called us on, *69, and she agreed to bring us a lease because we didnt have the gas turned on due to us not having a lease to furnish to SW Gas so we could get the gas turned on. Finally she gave us the lease and said that she didnt need a copy. We asked her many times who is the owner of the house and she kept telling us that she is, and that she has the warranty for deed for the house but couldnt show us anything. She had promised in good faith that she would bring it later on when she would bring the lease. She never did and never has. Since then we have found out that her and Dorel Steven Lupsa (boyfriend) have around 24 different foreclosure properties in Phx and they are breaking into them 2 months before they go on public auction, collecting first and last months rent $2200.00 and then one more months rent, and then the houses get sold at the auction and she has told us her self not to worry, if the home does get sold, we (meaning me and my family) are already living in it so the mortgage company would either buy us out up to $2500.00 or we are going to get to live there rent free for a year! After further investigating and strange people coming to the house looking for the previous owner (who is still the actual owner to this day her name is Rodica, who is the actual oner of this house and still owns the lending company the balance of the whole mortgage, and she maxed out ALL of her credit cards took out what little equity was in the house and moved to Romania! Come to find out, that Sonya and Dorel convinced Rodica to- do just that- and to sign the quick claim deed to this property over to them and would "take care of everything"! BUT, come to find out they are legally NOT responsible for the $ owed to the lender) we have found an insurmountable amount of evidence that is leading to a good strong fraud case.
There is a private detective, Liz, hired by a car loan company to settle on a fraudulent vehicle loan that Sonya is in possession of, she took out a car loan in an dead mans name from the state of Indiana. She had contacted us and the amount of evidence that the PI has against these two people is so large, I cannot begin to tell you. This PI has shown us the list that Sonya Mona Doolan has at least 20 different aliases: social security #s, all of her addresses go to mailboxes Exc. There is at least one other private investigator working a case on Sonya and Dorel. We called the Phoenix PD on May 7th 2008 and they told us to file with the AG fraud dept. They have been doing this for years and all of the houses seem to all be old in care home heath establishments that have been in foreclosure for at least a year or so. We have so much evidence- not to mention what has been left in the houses ie: credit card bills from at least 5-6 all with different names on them, official and unofficial court documents with their names on them, ect. There is just too much to list. Also there is another resident, Vera, who moved into one of these houses (of Sonyas and Dorel) who is filing a complaint on them as well, and she has even more evidence against Sonya and Dorel. All three parties, Vera, the PI's and ourselves have been working together to collect as much information on these people as possible. Like the before mentioned, we have an insurmountable amount of hard evidence from all three parties concerned with this matter so far that it would be in your best interest to further your investigation on them. Sonya and Dorel have 24 different properties (so they say there may be more) and there is also evidence that they are in this country illegally as well. Due to Sonya being married and recently divorced which to our understanding becomes an immigration issue. We have talked with neighbors and different people in the community that have resided in this community for years and they all told us the same thing, there is something wrong going on over there; at that house, up to a year prior to us moving in. Also they mentioned that they have witnessed these people in and out of the house that we now reside at and they all recall seeing many of them openly armed with hand guns so I beg of you to investigate further because we dont want our familys being hurt in anyway. Sonya has tried to contact us via phone and text message in order to still try to collect rent for this month. We were advised by the Phoenix PD, the PI, and various other creditable sources from lawyers to brokers NOT to give these people anymore $ and we have not. We have contacted the Department of Real Estate- they told us to go right to Attorney Generals Office, Immigration, we have a police report (# 080786485) from yesterdays incident (may 7th 2008).
We have filed complaints with the Attorney Generals Office, the Consumer Fraud Division, Better Business Bureau, the Real Estate Board and have obtained copies of the Landlord Tenant Act and the Renters Rights information, as well as ANOTHER PI (dont have their information yet because we are still trying to get in contact with them) this PI left a notice on Vera's garage door for her to contact her because the notice said that her house that she lives in right now is under investigation. Don't trust these parasites and don't give them a penny!!
