• Rita Fulciniti put a down payment on a new west-end condo, thinking that home ownership would bring her a little comfort and financial security in her retirement years. Instead, the 66-year-old is living in a homeless shelter, broke, and still chasing the Toronto real estate agent who borrowed her life savings.



Chaim Smilovici, who also goes by the name Howard Smilovici, borrowed $95,000 from Rita Fulciniti in June 2015, but says he didn’t pay her back before she was supposed to close her condo deal, as they had agreed. (Kabbalah Centre Toronto/Facebook)
