Kim Holloway's efforts to avoid foreclosure ended up costing her ownership of her home - and, she says, nearly her life.
She says Brandon-based Home Savers Plus of Tampa Bay Inc. promised to rescue her from foreclosure, but instead stole her Bradenton home, which sits on land that's been in her family for more than a century. She says the company conned her and her daughters into signing away the deed, then sold the house to a Georgia woman who's now suing to evict them.
Holloway is fighting in court to regain possession of her home, but says the ordeal has been so stressful that she attempted suicide.
"After I found out what was going on, I really didn't want to live," Holloway said. "I almost killed myself in October - OD'd (on prescription drugs). I just wanted to die."
