Lawsuit claims funds intended for vehicle purchase were misused

By John Suayan, Galveston Bureau | Aug 29, 2013

GALVESTON - Alleged financial wrongdoing is the focus of a lawsuit targeting a Grand Prairie man and his home care business.

In court papers filed Aug. 22 in Galveston County Court at Law No. 1, Juvet Che accuses Eric Angwafor and Vana Home Health Inc. of pocketing $5,000 intended for the purchase of a 2003 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.

The original petition states that the parties had a contract dated May 22, 2011, which called for Angwafor to buy the vehicle on Che's behalf.

Che issued a check with the amount in question to CIRE Industries Inc., a corporation under Angwafor's control, that same day.

According to the plaintiff, Angwafor did not purchase the truck nor refund him the money, but applied for a revolving loan credit at Citibank.

Angwafor also used the disputed funds for himself as well as Vana, the suit asserts.

It adds he obtained an American Express card under Che's name and racked up approximately $72,000 in charges.

Consequently, the complainant seeks $50,000 in damages.

Attorney Okon J. Usoro of Houston is representing the plaintiff, and Galveston County Court-at-Law No. 1 Judge John Grady is presiding over the case.

Cause No. 70,552
