Woman finds squatters in her home who are now demanding a right to be there.

They need to track down that Craig’s List asshole and put him/her in jail, too!

A Georgia woman named Dena Everman is upset after finding a family living in her vacant home for sale.

“I found out in the past week there is some archaic law that says if someone sets up residence in your home, it doesn’t matter how they get in there they have rights until we evict them,” Everman said.

Everman found Tamera Pritchett living in her Cobb County, Ga. home with her fiance and two children, WSB2 reported. Everman called the police after she found a broken window, assuming the officers would evict the trespassers.

Pritchett said she found the home for rent on Craigslist, signed the lease by fax, and paid the rent through a money order.

“And they told us until these people come and forcibly evict us they can’t force us out on our rights,” Pritchett said. “We’re not just trying to stay in your home and hold you up on your sale. But at the same time, we just spent $3,000—that’s not something we can just pull out and immediately move somewhere else, you know.”

Everman fears she may lose the pending sale on her home.

“Outrage. Everybody doesn’t understand why someone who has no legal right to be in my home can stay in my home and I’m the one who has to evict them,” Everman said.

The eviction process in Georgia can take four to six weeks.

    Looks like it’s time to call in Himmie Rubenstein’s Hasidic lightning company. They do floods as well, but that’s extra!

    I just love how the scumbag squatter claims to be the victim. Hey, if you forked over $3K to some idiot you never met, who you contact by fax, and asks to be paid by money order and the house you get to live in has to be broken into…you are NOT a victim. She knew it was a scam and was willing to go along with it and use the law as a tool to commit her crime.

    There needs to be a castle doctrine in place here. Even if it is not your primary residence, if someone is in your house or on your property, you get to assume they are there for nefarious purposes and “protect: yourself by any means necessary.

    If that was me, I would start trashing the place, and force these idiots to flee for their lives, and then lie lie lie to the cops when they come.

    Same crap happened to a homeowner in Detroit. It seems homeowners have no legal rights to their own property. Can you imagine being on vacation for a couple of weeks and coming back to find squatters in hour home and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    Tell the squatters they can play their little game, but it will cost them their welfare
    benefits and this shit would stop in a heartbeat!
