James Georginis owner of Jimmy's Wildwood Rentals is ripping off and making bad transactions with unassuming minors.

Jimmy rents properties in the Wildwood area of New Jersey. My 17 year old daughter her friend and my husband went and looked at one of his place that he lists in the Wildwood area of New Jersey.
They were renting for senior week and were taking care of the transaction all themselves, I was just there for support and safety.

After meeting with Jimmy, he seemed so nice and caring to the kids. They decided to rent for two weeks. They gave him a $100.00 down, he told them that at anytime they could cancel and get there money back as he could easily rent the property again. They mailed their first payment of  $650.00.
Oh and you need to know this the girls never signed any contract, nor could they enter into a contract they are 17. 

After only one month some of the girls could not go through with the transaction and we cancelled the rental with Jimmy. At this point he stopped answering his phone. We started to hear bad situations with Jimmy by others, and multiple situations where he ripped kids/people off.

We tried contacting the actual owner Giovanni Sansone who was very nice but said he could not help, and that we should sue Jimmy that he was a scum. And ripped kids off.

I sent a certified letter, called and called and called. At one point he said he was sending us the monies back but no check ever came. 

Protect your children and do not rent from this guy.

Dito

AUTHOR: Samm - ()

 A group of my friends and I also had an encounter with Jimmy.  We met up with him in Wildwood to sign a lease for a house to stay in for two weekd.  Jimmy would not let us see the inside of the property because he claimed there was a woman living in it during the winter season.  We met Jimmy at his "office" where we got a signed lease and paid a 100$ deposit on the property.  After mailing him the first payment with a copy of the lease, he dissapeared.  He would not respond to phone calls, texts, or emails.  We had to find another house and could unfortunately only get it for one week because of the late notice and the price range we now had to work with after being scammed for that first payment.

Jimmy Wildwood rentals is a scam !! take him down

AUTHOR: Not going to be ripped off anymore!!! - ()

This guy stole from my son and his friends  $5000.00. They paid him in full for a property that several other people also have at the same time and same place. I reported him to the cops when I was in Wildwood a few weeks ago when I saw how he operates. He puts teenagers in bulidings that are inhabitable. He promised my kids a "complimentary" weekend at the property that was on the lease when they signed it. But when it came down to it a 1/2 hour before they arrived he changed the location. That night he tried to put them in a horrific unit in a horrific part of town in Wildwood. I made them vacate the property ASAP. I immediately called the Wildwood police. I took pictures of this place it should have been condemned. I had 20 kids sitting on the curb for hours starting at 1 o'clock in the morning in one of the worst parts of Wildwood with NO place to go because of this scum. He had know idea I was following my kids down the shore. James refused to put them in another property, refused to give us our money back and refused to come to the property where I was that night. Coward!! And his security team, what a joke!!  My kids took a party bus down and it dropped them off then left. The authorities were at his office last week. I am getting names of everyone that was ripped off by this jimmy wildwood rentals and giving the names by email to the CMC detective. Please if you want to bring him down contact me. We can all do this together.

Wildwood Rental House Scam

AUTHOR: Karin - ()

We just found out were are victims of Jimmy's scam.  My daughter's friend actually rented from him and referred her to Jimmy. She and some others went to Wildwood to check out the house and meet with him. After repeated requests for a contract she finally received it.  I made her show it to me which she did.  It was a very simple contract.  Money was sent in by certified check and cashed.  Saturday morning after prom on Friday they were to leave.  Now this is what they have to remember their senior year by.  Their prom will not be as it should be.  How can someone do this to unsuspecting teens and parents.  How can you look yourself in the mirror.  I didn't see any red lights.  He did a good job scamming.

He scammed our kids out of 12K

AUTHOR: James - ()

This guy just scammed about 50 Philadelphia teens out of about 100K.  All the kids lost their money and had their summer vacations ruined.  We just filed out own ripoff report and are actively and vigorously pursing legal action and law enforcement.  We dont think the Wildwood Police Department will do anything about this.  No one returns our phone calls.  When a group of parents went down their to get their kids money back they were met by thugs and goons of this guy.  Even the ABC News reporter and cameraman were threatened by this Jerk.  Please do not let your children rent from him or any where in Wildwood.
