Where excessive rent hikes and utility costs take center stage.

Un-Necessary Manager Harassment of Tenants, I was the subject of harassment when I filed a BBB complaint against this company.. I was called into the office and FORCED by threat of EVICTION to sign a form stating I did not make the complaint, I fear for the well being of my family and for the safety of my family especially being we are not legal US citizens and THEY KNOW IT.. I have nowhere to turn, I am applying for citizenship of this country but I feel I am not in America at all being treated this way. There is no stopping this harassment, I have neighbors who are forced to pay extra money out of their own pockets to the management so they don't get evicted.. this is so sad. I am moving from here as soon as I can, this is no way to live!

I found this online, .. maybe if we all ban together sumthing will be done.

Innocent families are just trying to make a living
but end up paying the price at the hands of these CORPORATE BULLIES
Do you pay an average of $200 for your water and sewer?

Just because you can raise the cost of a family's rent and water doesn't mean you should..

    I am the President of Clearwater, Island in the Sun HOA LLC in Florida. Our lot rents are the highest in our county (Pinellas), by far. Under the laws of our state we initiated a process to negotiate a five-year lot rental agreement for our residents with Cal-Am officers. We did reach a compromise on rents, but the agreement Cal-Am returned was full of loopholes allowing them to charge different rents than what we had agreed. They did not negotiate in good faith.

    We have experienced and documented many instances of bullying an coercion of residents and deceptive or outright illegal acts.

    Ours is a 55+ community were many have fragile health and most expect this to be their last and final abode.

    Cal-Am accounting practices are negligent and should be audited. Lost rents, overcharges, lack of understanding the rent collection process, misuse f the regulations, misleading and omitted disclosures in their rental prospectus, failure to replace specimen oaks, failure to clean up empty lots, and so on.

    Well now, I'm not a former employee or an illegal immigrant but I am a resident at one of the cal-am properties who happens to be in a quandary over recently discovered improper business practices. Practices that include but not limited to rent ledger post that contain fictitious entries, unbalanced journal entries, invalid or illogical accounting, misappropriated rent payments to cover shortages, withheld receipted funds to cover mismatched ledger balances, etc. The list is endless and I have my receipts to prove some 7 unregistered payments made as well as altered entries made with intent to defraud. Vasquez1is correct in stating that the proper local agencies, government IRS, and the BBB need to get involved beginning with an audit done to prove any and all discrepancies. People aren't going to allow large corporations to rise above the laws that govern everyone equally, starting with little 'ol ME. This is unacceptable business practice, SHAME ON THEM IF GREED IS THE FUEL THAT KEEPS THIS CORPORATE MACHINE MOVING. Your thoughts ?

    I have noticed a trend with guitarfanzz. He comments on almost every single Cal-Am Complaint. Could it be he is an ex-employee and a little upset about it. The above complaint is clearly a lie and a ploy to get people to like their FB page??!! I will add out of 2 billion people on FB 22 to have liked this site. Interesting. It begs the question is guitarfanzz the original complainer? When you get so defensive on a complaint that has nothing to do with you it raises questions. I would say both of these complaints were made by the same individual. He is clearly an upset ex-employee. The BBB dismissed the claim because it was false. The Washington State Landlord Tenant Laws would have taken in effect here and if the claim was warranted there would have been big consequence's for the company. The WA state Landlord Tenant laws always favor the tenant. If a tenant was truly being harassed as they stated above then fair housing would have stepped in. As far as your neighbors paying out of pocket to the manager that is also a lie. Once again fair housing would stepped in. I would even go as far as saying guitarfanzz is the one that started the FB page stated above. What a sad individual. Pitiful really.

    The complain clearly states they were ILLEGALLY harassing them. I have not experienced that but I have witnessed my neighbors harassment. If they made a complaint then were forced to back off the BBB would not have moved forward. Bullies don't play fair. YOU clearly must work for the company.. Trust me there is a plethora of lawsuits against calam you can find on any internet search, they just settle these suits in privacy to save face and avoid any public shame / penalties.

    The above person is lying. It is completely illegal to harass a tenant due to their immigration status. As for forcing others to pay money that is also a blatant lie. Equally illegal. I think this is just an upset person trying to start some drama. If what they said was true their would be a lawsuit. The BBB would have taken action instead of dismissing the claims. Why? Because everything in this statement is false. Nice try tho!
