It could only happen in America.... or could it?
We recently came across a story that sounded too crazy to be true but it is and should be a warning to us all when purchasing our dream home!!
A woman in San Diego who missed out in a bidding war for her dream house just couldn't let it go and as a result was ultimately sentenced for stalking.
The woman was devastated and heartbroken when she missed out on a property she thought would be her perfect home so she decided to take out her frustrations on the married couple who had successfully purchased the property. Over a period of months the woman played what she refers to as “pranks” which included; billing the couple for $1000 worth of adult diapers and magazines subscriptions they didn't order, sending Valentine’s Day cards to the neighbours’ wives signed by the husband, advertising a fake News Year’s Eve party at the home, listed the house for sale and had their mail stopped. The final straw came when she advertised on a fantasy sex website posing as the wife inviting men to come to the house to play out a dangerous fantasy.
Through this last “prank” the police were able to locate the “troublemaker” and she plead guilty to stalking and was sentenced this year to five year’s probation, a year of electronic home surveillance and ordered to stay away from the couple for 10 years.
We wish we knew what the moral of the story was .....?
