BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com first reported yesterday that Boca Raton Police are investigating the apparent theft of escrow money paid to Boca Realtor John Rashotsky of Mizner Grande Realty. Here was part of our original post:
“A New Jersey doctor and his wife may have lost $67,500 in a possible scam involving escrow accounts in Boca. According to police, the couple placed the money in an escrow account at the direction of their Realtor, Jon Rashotsky, as they prepared to purchase a property. Incredibly, however, there was no contract for the property and the potential buyers are now unable to get their money back.”
We have now received word from a reader that the apparent victims are not alone. Here is part of the note we received: “I too was scammed by Mizner Grande Realty and Jon Rashotsky, as well as Edgar A. Benes, PA of my $2700. escrow amount. I live on a fixed income, and that money was absolutely necessary to completing the sale of a condo to me sometime this week. The Benes law office has refused to cooperate in setting a date for release of my funds.”
I am attaching a letter I received yesterday from an attorney, purportedly explaining the problems. I have enquired as to whom he represents, but to date have not received a response. If you know of a specific police official who is handling this case, please let me know, so that I may file formal charges.”
