I contacted CIG realty after reading an ad they placed in our local Corpus Christi Paper. I had to wire them $2000.00 dollars to start. I am disabled and on Social Security Disability. Money is very tight for me. After looking at several houses and going through with their bid process that took several months to finally get the home owner and CIG to agree on a buying price. I had found a home and had a contract signed by the seller, CIG never signed as the buyer and the sale never went though. I have since found a owner finance house and had requested my money back in September of 2012. My brother loaned me the $2000.00 dollars to put down on the owner financed house that I live in now. He had to take this money out of his savings account and I was to pay him back with my refund from CIG realty. My brother was saving this money to pay on his house property taxes and now he had to pay more in interest because he had to pay the late fee in the amount of $114.79 plus interest from the credit card which he used to pay his property taxes with. This credit card is still incurring interest from this transaction. The name of the person that I talked to at CIG realty is Anthony Podias, the assistant manager at CIG Realty. On three separate occasions Anthony gave me dates that CIG would overnight my refund in the amount of $2000.00 which as of February 26,2013 I still had never received. Anthony Podias was aware of the fact that my brother was loaning me this money out of his saving account and that he needed it paid back to him no later than January 2013. Anthony assured me that I would have my refund within 15 days after I requested the refund which was requested on September 1, 2012. Needless to say we are still waiting. I have since filed a police report with the Corpus Christi Police Dept Case Number 12-10310083. CIG reality was under biding on all the houses I was interested in, and they normally took 3 weeks between counter offers so they could delay the process until the seller would get fed up and deny any more offers from CIG. This would give CIG more time to keep my money before I would finally say enough is enough and ask for a refund of my deposit.
I am requesting a full refund on the $2000.00 that I wired to CIG Realty, along with the money wire filing fee of $30.00, the Postal fee of $5.90, the Police report fee of $3.00, property tax late fee of $114.79, along with all associated court fees and travel expenses that may occur , plus 5% monthly interest fees on the original $2000.00 that was wired to this company from June 7,2012 to the date of the court judgment if I am forced to file a Small Claims Suit. In addition, I have notified the FBI, and the Attorney General of your scam. I will be filing a small claims suit if we have not received this refund March 8, 2012 I have also notified Who Scammed you.Com and Scambooks about your illegal activities. We will also be appearing on Television to spread the word even further. It been ten months and all I and she has heard from you is lies. It time you face the music or go to jail.
