Description

Belleville News-Democrat exposes two St.Louis area landowners who exploit the poor by selling them bond-for-deed homes without down payments. The landowners inevitibly end up repossessing because of bad terms. The series also details how legitimate banks allow such people to flourish by not lending to people living in run-down areas.
