I paid a move-in security deposit, but actually never moved in due to a failed inspection. I requested a refund from owners.
During the waiting time of this, I left several messages on the owners personal cell phone, that went unanwsered, or I was told to call back later. The owners I feel would intentionally not anwser my calls, because when I would call from a different number they would pick up. 2 weeks went by and I got fed up with their games, so I went to thier real estate office, which was unattended for the 3 hours I waited outside. When they finally showed up, They told me They had 21 days by law to return my deposit, So I waited and now 38 days later i have not received anything. i have spoken to fair housing rights advocates, I have reported to to federal trade commission, as well as the better business bureau. Please don't fall for these peoples scam.
