KRGVTV reports from Laferia, Texas, that an MH dealer with two pending civil cases against it has received a fresh batch of accusations alleging fraud. Park Girl in Laferia, in south Texas, has been accused of taking deposits for manufactured homes and then breaking the contract without returning the money. Erika Pena gave Jo Leigh Ares a $4,000 deposit. “She sits you down and let’s you pick out everything and she writes it down and that’s the way it’s supposed to be,” says Pena. She refused to pay the balance when her choices were ignored, and shortly thereafter received a letter that the agreement was canceled, but sans the 4k deposit. With other complaints having been lodged against the company, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA), Manufactured Housing Division, is investigating, according to the Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA). Park Girl’s website says it specializes in selling previously owned manufactured homes, but sells new as well. The report also indicates Park Girl operates an MH community.
