A St. Paul real estate investor is accused by his customers of duping them into selling their homes and taking their equity. Several homeowners facing foreclosure say they were rushed through a complicated and confusing real estate deal they thought would help them save their homes.

Instead, they discovered they'd sold their house and had agreed to a lease-back deal with much higher monthly payments.
His accusers say the deals fit the pattern of a foreclosure rescue scam.
It's a little-known form of predatory lending that appears to be spreading.
