Katherine Lang arrived to her new Beaufort home Sunday to find someone else’s clothes churning in the washing machine and her dishes stored away.
Dogs and a cat roamed Lang’s home, and two women were talking inside. A couch rested on the back porch.
Another family was moving in.
“I said ‘What are you doing in my house?’” Lang said. “It became clear to me what happened.”
The would-be tenants had been scammed.
