NTA: Seek legal action to kick out the scam artists 😈

"NTA I'm not even sure they'd be able to pull this off. From what I gather (not owning a house myself) titles need to be traceable to ensure a chain of legal ownership (as well as keep track of taxes). Obviously do what you're doing by contacting a lawyer, but it's absurd you even have to do that. How did they think they were going to pull this off?" 😳
