And, because the homeowner won’t stand up to protect his home and family, he’s left with having a tenant he doesn’t want.
Reading this, I was reminded of my early days @ TMCCC… (cue harp music signifying a return to the days-of-yore…)
I had a fraud case wherein a credit card holder (an older, retired gentlemen) had become friends, then lovers, with a women he met in a park. He asked her to move in with him, and suddenly it was she, her young daughter, some animals, and some friends as tenants. And she set about using his credit cards and money without permission. THEN, she waited for him to leave the house, had him charged with domestic abuse, and had an order-of-protection taken out against him! He was no longer able to enter his own home!
And then she and her friends turned his retirement cottage into a meth factory.
But that was not the icing on the cake. After years of legal wrangling, he finally was able to have them extricated from his home, and jailed. Of course, the interior was trashed, and his furniture and property sold or destroyed. Because she had used his credit cards fraudulently, he was told the best thing to do was to file bankruptcy to get out of the debt she had created.
But he could not…
SHE HAD FILED BANKRUPTCY USING HIS SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!
Imagine trying to explain that to creditors, attorneys and law enforcement!
And you thought the movie Pacific Heights was harrowing!
STAND UP FOR YOURSELF!
