“He told me these great World War II stories. He told me he liked oatmeal cookies. So I made him oatmeal cookies. We had a good rapport so I didn’t think he would do this.”
“He explained how much money I could save,” testified Jose Luis Montoya, another one of foster’s alleged victims. “I can have my house in the city I choose. I thought it was cheap compared to what the market was at the time. I trusted him.”

When the time ended and these people wanted their money back , Lucius said they would get their money back, however when that didn’t happened they could reach him again.
He had disconnected his cellphone. He wasn’t picking up his home phone. I had to call from a number he didn’t recognize. He picked up and said he had been sick and there had been delays.”
“I wanted to cancel the contract and take my money back,” testified Montoya. “He said he couldn’t [give me the money back] because of the recession and he needed more clients. He said once he got more clients he would give me my money back.”
“It took three years and I still believed him. He told me so many different stories. The main thing was the city wasn’t giving permits out and he was trying to get them … I finally gave up on the idea. I wasn’t going to get a house.”
“The excuses varied from city hall wouldn’t give him a permit to people were taking him to court and taking his money away. He said if I filed a small claim against him, he would file for bankruptcy.”
