First village Rentals, LLC / non payment of rentals
We believe that we have been ripped off by First Village rentals in The Villages, Florida. After numerous un-returned phone calls and e-mails to our Property Manager, First Village Rentals, to request our March rent due to us (approx. $2, 500.00) that was a month and a half overdue, we realized that as of May 1st, 2009, the First Village Rentals Website disappeared and the phone number no longer answers as First Village Rentals, and our e-mails bounce back to us stating "auto-reply" with no message attached. It appears that the First Village Rentals has closed shop and absconded with many of its client’s monies. First Village Rentals had a fiduciary responsibility to its client property owners under contract to collect our rents and remit them to us, the property owners, after withholding their rightful commission. Furthermore, we entrusted our homes to them and paid monthly caretaking fees, etc. and they have abandoned our homes and will not respond to us. They have our keys and access to our properties. It appears that they are thieves and should be prosecuted. If anyone else in this situation would like to contact us we would appreciate it as we live in new Jersey and can not immediately run down to Florida. We want to report this to all responsible authorities, police station, better business bureau, division of consumer affairs, etc. The owners of First Village Rentals must be stopped from committing further frauds. Thank you.
