The soon-to-be owner of a Sacramento house in escrow arrived with a moving van Friday evening to find a family living in the house.
Sacramento police officers were called to the house in the 1800 block of 68th Avenue about 7 p.m. after the person purchasing the property found two adults and two children living there, according to the Police Department's daily activity log.
The occupants told officers that they rented the house several weeks earlier and had given the "landlord" money for rent and a deposit. Officers reported that a representative for the property being sold was on scene and provided documents and a deed of ownership. They said it could not be confirmed whether the renters were victims or participants in a fraudulent scheme.
The occupants left the house voluntarily, police reported.
