Fake homeowners association files real liens...

• http://fox4kc.com, by Linda Wagar

"Just want to let you know it's a scam," Tony Navarro said he was told when he moved to the Summerfield subdivision. "This is not an HOA neighborhood at all. There are no monthly fees."

But then, just before Christmas, a $445 lien was filed against Navarro's home and more than 30 others.

The reason? For not paying dues to the Summerfield Homeowners Association. An HOA that has no board and provides no services.

If you call the phone number for the company that runs the HOA -- Column's Park LLC: "It's some random guy that answers," neighbor Jesse Kaucher said.

"He told me he had the number for five years," Kaucher said. "He asked me to let the community know it's not him. That's how you know it's a scam."

That's why neighbors called FOX4 Problem Solvers. Even though the HOA may be fake, the liens are real. Neighbors have had to hire attorney Ed Ford to get them removed.
