On June 7, 2007, I got a phone call in reference to a legal matter mentioning my social security number as a file number. When I called I was yelled out by Bill Williams stating that I owed Villas at Lauderhill 845 dollars, and if I don't pay my credit will be in deprity; this was an apartment I rented in Lauderhill FL last year on June 2006 when planing to relocate there. I gave them everything they ask for a month of security consider also as month of rent to hold the apartment for me because I was in NY, 65 dollars to check my credit and when I got there on JUne of 2006 they asked me for the first month of rent otherwise I couldn't stay, I gave them another month of rent. The apartment wasn't in move in conditions to start as they stayed, the AC wasn't working and they appliances weren't working as well, I was interrupted by them when doing the framing inside the apartment, in a week an a half I decided to leave and come back to NY, the person who made me sign the lease never gave me a copy of the lease even though I asked her and her daughter.
Unfortunately when I left I was so tired and confused by other stuff that I just went over to the Lease Office and told the lady I am going back to NY here are your keys and forgot asking her again for a copy of the lease. I remember in the lease I signed that they will keep the month of rent or deposit and one more month of rent if I would've break the lease wich I did, they never gave me my deposit back and I didn't ask them because I remember the conditions of the lease.
I called Villas at Lauderhill to ask them for a copy of the Lease they never gave me and why they were charging me with 845 dollars after a year she said they were doing renovations and kept moving from one office to another so they are now realizing who to charge for breaking leases, she said she will send me a copy but never did. I called back but another woman told me she didn't know and to call back, I called back and they told me they can not mail Leases out and the person who told me will mail one didn't know about it. I never asked them for my deposit because I left it as another month of rent for breaking the lease why would they be asking me after a year for an amont I know I don't owed them.
On June 26 I got another letter to cease comunications from Florida First from Bill Williams the same individual that called mentioning my social security for a legal matter, I believe this is abusive and fraudulent and why Villas at Lauderhill is refusing to send me of the lease I signed and refered my SSN to a collection agency like Florida First.
