Charles Wiebe DBA Astoria Estates — Fraud
I rented a home from Charles Wiebe in October, 2009, for my daughter's wedding. The house itself was great, with the exception of some electrical problems, and a garage full of junk that did not allow for storing excess outdoor furniture to make way for wedding tables, etc. The problem is with the owner, Charles Wiebe, who has an office in the rental house, and continues to be in and out of it at all times of the day and night while the renter(s) are staying there, without consent or notice. He also "popped up" several times at the wedding and the evening reception without consent or notice. Some of my guests found it rather uncomfortable and "creepy". After leaving the property, I have tried on many occasions to retrieve my refundable deposit to no avail. The guy just does not answer any phone calls or e-mails. I have been contacted by other parties who have, or are having the same issues. Renter Beware!
