Cal-Am Properties, Inc.unfair, unjust, & illegal practices

G Review updated:

I have been employed with Cal-Am Properties for over 10 years now.. and in all honesty this company “used” to be a great place to work, but over years there has been in a steady decline. What used to be a customer oriented philosophy has now become a greed infested cesspool. There have been little change for the good of the communities (resort properties not included).. the only thing that does seem to change around here on a regular basis is upper management.. and it is no wonder given the lack of education these so called “executives” really have.. The owner is so obviously concerned w/ fancy degrees that he is blindly making choices in who he has put his company in the hands of.. it doesn't take a bachelors degree to see that this company is in serious trouble due to the countless mistakes these so called delegates continue to make.
There are some very costly blunders which only costs the residents more money.
There are unjust practices being done at every property which continues to scam tenants out of money.


Currently there is a new regional tyrant in place Bobbie Scofield who barely has the education of a maintenance worker let alone a regional position.. His lack of industry specific knowledge not only threatens the balance of the residents happiness, but also has been causing many of the long term and dedicated employees to leave the company.. He is lead by another upper management dictator Brian Sweat who encourages the unsolicited harassment of managers, maintenance & sales staff, setting unobtainable goals and demands which ultimately result in even their elderly employees being discharged unfairly and sending even some to the emergency room.

This new regime has been gunning down innocent employees left and right in attempts to dissolve any whistle blowers who might foil their plans for their delusional quest. Unfair workplace practices are one of a long list of complaints from employees of this company. There have been many complaint due to the bullying tactics of this particular group.
It is only a matter of time before Cal-Am gets sued again.

    As a prospective property tenant, I quickly learned that Cal-Am is very sketchy in their practices... while in the midst of purchasing a home sold by Cal-Am, with an $80K down payment and external financing, Cal-Am demanded copies of both my social security card and my Medicare card -- which I refused. They already had a copy of my California Driver's license, and my US Passport which contain valid photos. So, asking for these items which cannot under federal law and California privacy laws be used for identification purposes -- and then for not only copies of W-2s for the pass two years, but full copies of my tax filings as well as bank statements including all my account numbers...I redacted the bank statements to black out all account numbers and they became belligerent with me. I TOLD THEM TO TAKE A HIKE! They were not loaning me any money and have no legal right to his information. And, they baulked and claimed it is necessary to ensure I am the person I say I am and not trying to scam them!!! Good Grief. And, when I said I refuse to be associated with anyone or any company that is tied to Scientology she promptly hung up... with no attempt to deny or defend their position. Clearly I toughed a nerve.
    All this sketchiness from people at a company that is owned by a former Attorney for L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology (Norton S. Karno) and run by his son-in-law, Cory Sukert. BAD KARMA. Do not become another victim of this organization that prays on people 55+ in age. They have abused too may across the USA already, and no one stops them.

    I am in a very serous law suite with Cal- Am. They are very dangerous and will do everything and any thing to do dangerous harm to you. They even turned one of their friends, who happens to be a important Utility Company, on me to scare me. I went to the FBI. I found out they are friends with high Political people. When I found that out the phone calls came in, "years from now someone is going to find you out in the desert with dirt kicked on you." All I wanted was my house leveled, we had only lived there for four months. These people went crazy. We are disabled, the Utility Company said they were unmoved and did not care if we are disable. I have it in writing and filed in court. Someone sent me a letter claiming they were from the FBI.(I have learned not to speak to the interns that answer your states phone...they love to hang up on you) I will only speak to a agent and do as the agent tells me to. The letter was a FRUAD! I had called the Atty. General. Someone called me back, a very angry woman I told her that I just sent everything to the FBI (I did not mention that I also went to and summited everything to FOX NEWS, they called me today, Sept 5 2015.) I wonder what they are going to do to me next. Oh I should say, "What is Cal-Am and their BULLY FRIENDS are going to do!" I hope their Political Friends who have already put their feet in their mouths back off to ruin that kind of career over a 63 year old lady who is disable can not afford a lawyer and for the past 4or 5 years has been fighting the Biggest Bully Attorney who is making a fortune off of them and we keep asking for a settlement. Every time we ask for a settlement he keeps adding on more court time. I filed with the Court that he is miss using his clients funds and misusing the Courts time. Don' t worry I've got something bigger up my sleeve. But with all this...what is Cal- Am really hiding, my friend and I are so disabled we have a letter from HUD and the Disability people that was one of the first things filed in Court and still during the time we lived on Cal- Am Properties (we can not point the finger) someone tried to kill us twice. Now we are going into Court...phone calls describing my death. Cal- Am is not only all over the United States but also in other Countries (Cal-Am and other company's is how we got the name "UGLY American")
    My goodness...if I stay alive and win this case (we are seeing very little money) Cal-Am Properties (hopefully) will have to clean up their messes. If Cal-Am Properties put you through the Hell the Physical abuse the starvation the Mental Abuse the Torture and( I can not prove it but in my soul I do believe it) the attempts on my life and my partners lives. Lets pray that we win this case and make Cal-Am Properties clean up their mess.

    Would you look at that my suspision has been confirmed! This is an ex-employee and for good reason. He clearly has issues since he feels the need to comment on every single complaint. He tries to get people to like his FB page. Out of 2 billion people on FB he has managed to get 22. Most of them his family I presume. This is really sad. Danny Phantom is the same person as guitarfan. Any and all that complain here thinking they are getting a "real" person to agree is being falsely used by the same individual. What a sad life he leads.

    We don't know how they handle their employees but we are seeing how they screw their residents. We're living in one of their communities and are seeing what is known as "creative accounting and creative financials". I think the Attorney General in our State should look into their practices. I would hazard to guess what they are doing at closings and monthly charges to its residents is way over the line. We have witnessed a screwed up closing where the original closing was redone 30 days later and reflected more up front money than what was required at the "first" closing and even the "recalculated" lot rent was upped and that's just a short list of how their creative accounting is being used on its seniors who for the lost part are on fixed incomes. Trying to contact Cal-Am is a crap shoot. They don't respond to voicemail left or emails sent. No one at Cal-Am is interested in what their residents have to say.
