Another fan uncovers suspicious behavior from Deon Derrico’s company:

  • “He claims to be ‘in real estate’. Edit: I was looking up some of his foreclosure mess and discovered that he claims to have a real estate management company. I also discovered he’s had 6 other homes foreclosed on here in Michigan. Several for non payment of property taxes. Maybe he should think about a real job.”

Furthermore, many believe the house is in foreclosure and Deon isn’t going to be able to fool people anymore.

  • “He for years pitched his family for shows to networks then when TLC signed them after the pilot season aired did good they got signed a 2nd season is when he no longer went into his office as a real-estate investor which I don’t think he ever was he took homes of people who died he promised their families he would fix up the houses & he would have them rented out and they would have a income but what he really did was get the deeds transferred in his name or fictitious names sell the house would pay the families so much a month and by the time they found out what really happened it was too late. The houses he had deeded in his name that didn’t sell he lost & they were foreclosed on. He was charged with fraud theft but was found not guilty.”
