Earlier, we told you about Jodie Foster's dad Lucius Foster who was facing 20 years for swindling the elderly out of thousands of dollars, claiming he'd build them low-cost homes.
As we said, he was convicted of 25 counts of grand theft and 10 counts of contracting without a license, all misdemeanors.
More details have come out as to exactly how he was scamming these poor homebuyers.
Since 2005, he'd been soliciting customers and was named the "Bernie Madoff of Sherman Oaks."
The Deputy City Attorney said:
"Not one of these homes has ever been built in the city of Los Angeles. It's all a big scam."
Foster claims he is innocent, however, and insists there was no scam. He alleges that he was trying to solve the city's housing problem by building solar-heated three-bedroom, two-bath homes for less than $100,000.
But if no homes were built, but he still took money from those people, then YES, THIS IS WHAT A SCAM IS.
Wonder what Jodie thinks of this… If she even talks to her dad at all…
