Two people arrested for allegedly selling houses in NE Ohio

Two people have been arrested in connection with an advertisement that advertised a house for rent in Northeast Ohio.

The advertisement, posted by a local real estate agent, claimed the home would be ready in a day, said Scott Wysocki, a spokesperson for the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

The ads posted online last week did not list a phone number or a home address, but a video posted to the seller’s Facebook page shows a man wearing a mask and holding an envelope.

He said he was trying to sell the home for $500,000.

The Ohio Attorney Association said in a statement that it is working with the Ohio State Housing Authority to investigate the case.

It said it is not aware of any violations in connection to the ad.
