Paul Conti: offered a homeless mother a home for free.
Homeless Mother & Children Given A Home – For Free!
WHEN Florida businessman Paul Conti heard how crooks had left a mother and her three children homeless and sleeping in a car, he stepped in to offer them a home.
EmaNoel Thermitus lost every penny she had to rent a home for herself and her young children when a conman tricked her into handing over cash for a house that was not on the market.
Broke and alone, EmaNoel and her children were forced to sleep in their car at a local park.
“He told me I needed to pay the last and first and security,” EmaNoel said.
NBC2 News correspondent Saundra Weathers reports that not only did Leiva steal her security, he also then handed EmaNoel a no trespassing notice and forced to leave the home.
“My heart just dropped. I couldn’t move because, you know, being alone is hard. And I said, ‘What am I going to do?”
After hearing about EmaNoel’s plight, Paul Conti stepped in to help.
Conti, a business owner, had a vacant property he was trying to rent. Instead, he offered it to EmaNoel and her children, rent-free.
“It actually made me angry that this guy did that … I’m just giving her time do she can save up this money again. I’m not charging her anything until she can afford to,” Conti said.
Leiva is currently in jail, awaiting trial on multiple charges related to his scamming.
