Dear Mr. Warren Buffet CEO,
I am writing to inform you that the company you purchased, Oakwood, mislead, misrepresented, lied to us, and threatened us into foreclosure on a mobile home we purchased from them. Tactics including but not limited to: promises made by staff that were not fulfilled, stealing our personal possessions, delaying delivery and set up dates, refusing to make agreed upon repairs, tricking us into purchasing insurance, and signing arbitrary agreements to prevent lawsuits, claiming by telephone that payments are late when they are not, lying, refusing to give payoff amounts, telling potential buyers that payoff was higher than it actually was, harassment and threatening personal injury if the sale of the mobile home to a 3rd party was completed.
According to the complaints I found on www.RipOffReport.com, I am not the only victim. I discovered that Oakwood filed for bankruptcy after I received a payment book from Vanderbilt Mortgage of Clayton Homes. This occurred shortly after you purchased Clayton Homes and Vanderbilt Mortgage.
Since then, I have been harassed by representatives of Vanderbilt as well as SYNCOM, a debt collector who is also used by Fairbanks Capital Corporation currently under investigation by the FTC. I have also discovered many complaints against Vanderbilt Mortgage, as well as Wells Fargo, a company whose corporate shares you own.
I will not give Vanderbilt/you any more money. No threats, harassment or the attempt to destroy our good character will aid your efforts in getting more money from us. I feel if I allow you to continue to extort money from us you will only be encouraged to gratify yourself on the poor, elderly, our Armed Forces and their families.
I will continue to pursue justice from your subsidiaries. Should I ever have the opportunity to get Berkshire Hathaway before a court, I will present this letter. I will also post it on the internet and give any person, law firm or organization permission to use this letter as evidence Berkshire Hathaway has been made aware of the conduct of Oakwood Acceptance Corporation, Vanderbilt Mortgage, Clayton Manufactured Homes and Wells Fargo.
