Texas Real Estate Magazine - Steve Haines FRAUDLENT ADVERTISER Grandbury Texas
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Roosevelt Mortgage - Houston Texas - Damages For Baseless Claims
We cancelled the contract but the company supposedly continued to run an ad which we never saw a copy of any ads nor did we ever sign any additional agreement to continue running the advertisement. We got bills in Roosevelt Mortgage Inc. name and dispute each time we received them. The next thing we know we got served in small claims court in Granbury Texas against to Kimberly Kirk dba Roosevelt Mortgage for $1200 dollars. This would be that they were suing me personally which this was clearly a corporate debt that was not even owed. I immediately contacted my attorney and informed her of this.
She contacted the courts and stated that we were not under contract and the agreement was between Roosevelt Mortgage Inc not Kimberly Kirk and the actions would be in Harris County. The Texas Real Estate Magazine sent over a contract that was scratched out never initialed clearly in Roosevelt Mortgage's name and the venue would be Granbury. Since they filed in the small claims court against me personally and my company in Granbury, I was going to have to travel over 6 hours to defend myself personally and my company.
I finally because of expense and time and to protect my personal credit decided to settle and pay them $1000. I know that I would have prevailed but did not want to incur additional attorney fees. This company is fraud and misrepresented themselves. They forged a legal document and purposely filed a claim against myself even though the agreement was signed by Roosevelt Mortgage Inc. and not personally guaranteed by myself. They knew that they could exhort money out of me and my company because we would not have gone to Granbury. We are demanding full repayment of attorney fees in the amount of $1497 and all money claimed owed dismissed in the amount of $1000.
