BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — 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.
