Deceptive Business Practices

Camden Living “Excellence” is violating the antitrust laws by unlawfully Restraining the renters' Right to choose and take advantage of the competitive rates offered by Cable, Satellite and Internet providers on the Open Market. The Monopoly Scheme, the so called "Technology Package" cable TV + internet access $ 96.00 extra and added as part of the monthly rent; is a SCAM to extort more money from the renters and Suppress Competition, the same package is offered directly from the provider at $ 34.99-49.99. The Scam also puts the tenants at the Risk of Eviction for not paying the fees as part of the rent, not simply discontinue the service if it is directly through a provider.
Renters, UNAWARE, in Addition to the monthly Rent will be subject to:
1- Application NON-Refundable Fee $ 200.00
2- Decoration NON-Refundable Fee $ 500.00,
3- Technology Package (cable TV + internet) monthly Fee $ 96.00.
4- Water, Sewer, Trash and "Management Fee" Variable monthly Fee $ 36.00 - $ 80.00.
5- Renters' Liability Insurance Coverage monthly Premium $ 30.00 +
6- Charge for Security Front Door (Break ins are frequent) $ 225.00.
7- Moving out cleaning Charge plus other invented Fees $ 85.00 +++
8- Carpet cleaning / replacement Fee $ 150.00 - $ 600.00
Rent becomes passed due at 6.00pm on the 3rd day of the month. A false legal eviction notice posted on the tenant front door with late fee of $150.00 imposed plus a $15.00 accumulated daily, extortion, never disclosed in the Rental Agreement.
Unreasonable Rent Increase at lease renewal - a 3 day notice to make a decision to accept the rent increase or give 60 day notice to move out or be subject to new higher prorated rent based on month to month almost double of the current lease agreement - in addition to the monthly charges. Even though; comparable apartments within the complex are offered at much lower rates, falsely advertised, to lure innocent new renters into the TRAP.
Avoid falling into the TRAP of Deceptive Business Practices, rent somewhere else.

Jessi Dupre, Your response, is a validation of the facts posted above and admitting that you are running a Scam at Camden Palisades, to extort extra money from the innocent rentals.
The Monopoly Scam of the "Technology Package" cable TV + internet access at $ 96.00 which you are defending, is offered through COX bundle at $ 59.99 with $200.00 rebate - collateral materials are available to show your lies. Contrary to your ignorant belief, NO tenant is happy about it, they say "it was shoved down their throat" by incompetent management and puts them in jeopardy of eviction. And, it is a violation of the Antitrust Laws.
To enhance the value of your property you charge the tenants for security doors and installation by playing on their fears of getting burglarized, which happen frequently, no security guard on premises and gates are always open. After the tenant moves out, then, turn around and charge a fee to the next rental for the security door, which had been paid for including installation by the previous tenant, Clever Scam - using other peoples' money - adding to the capital value of the property and generate extra income without investing any of your money.
Camden Palisades is basically financed by various fees collected from residents in addition to the rent (Application fee $200, 00, Decoration move in fee $500.00, Technology package fee $96.00, Water- sewer-garbage-management fee $80.00, Late fee $150.00 + $15.00 daily after the 3rd, Door fee $225.00, Pet fee $30.00, Insurance fee $30.00, Move out fees up to $1, 000.00) without cost to the owners for "Living Excellence".
Very Sleazy for "Living Excellence" to send e-mails to residents soliciting "nice reviews" of "5 stars" Sugarcoated Lies.
