At some point after Kerrian McKenzie was informed of her impending eviction, the North Lauderdale woman hatched a plan: McKenzie moved out. Then, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office investigators, she posted an advertisement on Craigslist in which she claimed to be offering the very same home for rent.
A man named Jim Etienne, who worked with McKenzie for three years, reportedly gave her a $1,000 deposit and was planning to move in to the home at 8151 SW Third Court on August 22. A 32-year-old woman, Nadia Sol, paid $1,700 for her deposit and was scheduled for an August 27 move-in. That's the same day that Tenille Hosten, 31, was told she could live in the home after giving McKenzie a $400 deposit.
