DENVER -- We first reported this weekend about a family who had to move out of their new house just a few days after moving into it.

They had nowhere to go and no money left.

The family found their rental through an ad on Craigslist. They signed a lease, paid and moved in.

But then, they found out that it was a scam.

After that terrible shock, came a shock from a generous FOX31 Denver viewer they will never forget.

Ashley Michels picks up the story from there in her video report above.
