It is not uncommon for elderly people in Russia to face fraudsters who are trying to take possession of their property and money. It is good when relatives react in time, but there is often no one to protect lonely elderly people, and scammers rub themselves into their trust in order to deceive them later.
Left alone in his old age, the creator became a victim of a real estate fraudster. The artist asked for help in managing the workshop of a lawyer, who, under the guise of a contract for the provision of legal services, slipped the artist a contract for the sale of the workshop for a song. After a dishonest transaction, the mansion was almost immediately put up for sale, but at its real value.
The details of this story have yet to be clarified, the situation is under the personal control of High Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Tatiana Moskalkova.
