Fort Worth, TX -- Zach Briseno remembers well an out-of-the-blue offer that fell squarely in the "too good to be true" category.
An organization he had never heard of asked him whether he would like a new quarter-million-dollar house, built to his specifications in the color of his choice in a planned community with a swimming pool.
It wouldn't be free. He would have to pay $50,000 for it, or about $350 a month. Other than that, everything was covered.
"It was crazy," he said. "I thought it was a joke. How often do you get a phone call like that?"
