Contract Fraud

After Hurricane Katrina it took a while to rebuild our home. My grandmother had came home before me to begin working on the house. We were separated for a whole year before she let me come back home. But there was no house to come home to. My grandmother didn't want tell me, but she had hired a contractor who took all our money. It took us 2 years and a half before we were able to move back into our house. I was upset but I was happy to be back with my grandmother.
