Sam J. Goldman wants to sell his McMansion west of Delray Beach for $1.7 million. But he has a problem: The Federal Trade Commission says he owes $24.4 million for defrauding customers of American Precious Metals LLC.
Goldman this week sued the FTC, saying he can’t sell his crib because of the government’s hefty lien.
“The FTC’s actions have prevented Mr. Goldman from exercising certain property rights he has under Florida law,” Goldman’s federal complaint said.
Goldman was slapped with a judgment in 2012. The 7,000-square-foot house has been on the market for more than a year.
