Prospective Resident · 2011
When I went to look at an apartment management seemed nice... I asked about the deposit and was told the apartment I looked at had been leased but if I wanted to I could put down a deposit on one that was coming available. I put a deposit down and they ran my credit through some Allied Credit Company (not experian or equifax or a reputable company) Supposedly, back in 2001 (10 Years ago) the credit report had an apartment listed that I owed money to???? So when I was told about this I said no problem... I will look somewhere else who uses reputable companies to verify correct information about applicants... Please return my check to me for the deposit. They told me, the check had been destroyed (shredded). THREE MONTHS LATER... My bank called me to say there was a check coming through that was out of sequence... IT WAS MY DEPOSIT CHECK!!! I took off work b/c they keep bankers hours in the office and the manager said that it was their policy that I forfitted my deposit because of the faulty information on the credit report! I am contacting the Property Manangement Owners to dispute this fraudulant reason to take my initial deposit!!
