Perth man's house sold without his knowledge

6:46 am on 13 September 2010

An Australian man living overseas found that his Perth house had been sold without his knowledge and a second property he owned was about to be sold.

Roger Mildenhall learnt last week that the property, which was worth almost $A500,000, had been sold in June.

He says scammers emailed his real-estate agent saying he wanted to sell and even produced duplicates of the deeds to the house. The locks had already been changed.

Mr Mildenhall says he has hired a lawyer to try to get his property back, and police are investigating.
