ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. (WYTV) – A man from Ellwood City says he was scammed out of a few thousand dollars after he put a deposit down on a condo lease.

The man said he put what he thought was a $4,200 deposit to secure the property in March only to find out it was foreclosed on about one year ago.

Police have charged David Winston Thompson in the case and are looking to bring him back to Pennsylvania from North Carolina.
