Investigators say man fraudulently sold properties in Harris County belonging to elderly and deceased individuals

HOUSTON - A man was arrested in Harris County for allegedly fraudulently selling properties, including those that belonged to elderly and deceased individuals.

According to the Harris County Pct. 1 Constable’s Office, Sammie Lee Flakes, 44, would find vacant properties and then forge home warranty deeds and false maintenance contracts to obtain bogus liens so he could assume ownership of the properties.

Investigators say Flakes would illegally file the deeds and liens with the Harris County Clerk’s Office and then sell the properties, rent them out or obtain lien payments from mortgage companies.

Investigators have identified 10 potential victims – including elderly and deceased individuals – but say there may be more victims who do not yet realize they were targeted. Authorities say victims generally did not realize they were targeted until they conducted a transaction that required the use of the deed to their property.

The Constable’s Office says the individuals were defrauded of an estimated $935,000.
