Placer County authorities seek victims in real estate scam

Detectives this week arrested William Frank Lordier (pictured), 54, with the assistance sheriff's authorities in Los Angeles County, where one of the victims lives.

Lordier, a former California real estate agent, was selling timeshares on Craigslist, according to a Sheriff's Department news release. Victims gave Lordier their bank account information, which he then allegedly used to take money from those accounts for his own personal gain.

So far, officials said, detectives have located multiple victims in Los Angeles and Nevada counties, and as far away as Oregon and Washington.

Lordier is being held without bail in Placer County Jail on suspicion of felony grand theft.

Anyone who may have been a victim of Lordier's alleged scam is asked to call Detective Jason Doolittle at (530) 889-7844.
