On December 15, 2011 I gave the supervisor (John), a $500 cash deposit (copy of the receipt available upon request) to reserve a room until January 1, 2011, the date I would move in. I then contacted the management company to see if Gamma LLC did indeed hold the deed to the property as I believed it might have been an illegal sublet. However, the management was uncooperative (see link to email:http://www.2shared.com/document/u17SFqJh /email_Gamma_LLC.html) and refused to answer questions. On Dec. 26 2011 John indicated he had rented the apartment and refused to refund my deposit.

Let's put an end to this!

AUTHOR: Junior1 - ()

I think it is going to happen to me as well and we should put a stop to it. Have you filed a lawsuit yet? Best action would be a class action lawsuit so that we put a permanent stop to this. Contact me at lyc-tkfkd[at]hanmail[dot]net      to discuss

#3 Consumer Suggestion

Scumbags will tell you anything!

AUTHOR: King Louis - ()

Alright, scumbag. You asked for it. Here, I'll upload the "lease" that I showed the police officers AND my bank. They laughed, and I asked them what's so funny? They told me that this isn't a real lease! I suppose they have seen sleazebags cheating young people before and this was the same case. 

Consumers/potential renters, please look at the document that I uploaded. Use discretion please. John/Kamal (Tom)/Christine will cheat you out of your precious money. Yes, landlords can keep security deposits (we know) BUT ONLY WITH GOOD SOLID REASONS with proof such as writings, photos, video recordings. By the way, security deposits are meant to cover damages done to the rooms/apartments (nothing about illegal subletting, in which I have not done as they claimed I and many others did! What a f*cking liar!) What good solid reason did they have to keep the deposits of their tenants?!

They also tell you one rental price at the showing and once you agree to that, you come in the next day or so with your things to move in on that first day and they tell you that you would have to pay more than agreed (i.e. instead of $1000, they say $1200). That's a way to trap you into a corner when you have no other choice! They lie as much as they can to get you there with your things and then, pull that card trick and say, "This is New York. You shouldn't take people's words for it." There you are with all of your belongings and there, standing with you are the scums who say, "You either pay what I tell you right now, or you can take your sh*t and move somewhere else." That's how they operate. They are greedy conniving mother-humpers! 

Stay away from 408 W. 36th Street, New York NY 10018!!! They like to see young boys and girls coming to NYC, because they know HOW TO SCAM them! 

First doc is the fake lease. Page 1: http://www.mediafire.com/?9tyn2y57sgz1lb4 , Page 2 http://www.mediafire.com/?524xbv5ob5o5bf1 , Page 3 http://www.mediafire.com/?2lzrjale3c482s2

Christine's handwriting on the move-in day "receipt"-- She said my room was $1000 (with all utilities included) for rent. We agreed in front of my family. On the so-called "lease," you can clearly see that it was $1000 plus $200 cleaning fee "upon move-in." So, first month's rent ($1000) + sec dep ($1000) + cleaning fee ($200) = $2200. Look at the receipt. http://www.mediafire.com/?arx7uhhds85dp9f

Now, look at my deposit slips at my bank for each month. Initially made $1000 thinking it is what it was since we agreed on $1000 per month (plus I made pro-rated payment of $165--that's fine since I moved in last 7 days of August). Then, I get an email from them (AGANYC@AOL.COM) in October saying that I still owed another $200 because the rent is, as they claimed, to be $1200--not $1000 as we agreed on on the first day. WTF?!!! Look here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/arx7uhhds85dp9f/SecDep_Receipt_(Christine).png  

Next, look, they charge even more: $1400 per month!!! A few examples of my receipts: http://www.mediafire.com/view/2g20q2fflrr2vix/Deposits_1400.jpeg 

I was furious! But I had no choice but to stay, because school had just started and my work was becoming too hectic. My family by this time was too far from me to even come help out, so I couldn't do anything. John told me that I can move out and take my things if I didn't like the price. What an a$$hole! He knew this is how scamming is done... Yes, John/Kamal, you are a penis head definitely for pulling this crap on us tenants.

That goes for Madame blondie Christine too--the one who's been pulling down all of your signs with your numbers (for post office related things) off of the door -- this is a way for people/authorities to not contact them at all. They keep no such things on the front door, because they are afraid of police officers calling and coming in to see the illegal things going on.

Because they were being dicks about money, I had to leave and write this up on RipoffReport.com. (By the way, the time when their so-called "construction" was going on, there were no bulletins, phone calls, texts, notes, signs, or any of those things to notify tenants of this during the summer. Why couldn't people enter the buildings when they were still paying rent each month?! Oh, but they were so keen on making sure that all tenants pay their rents on time.

EVERY MONTH, AS WE WALK OUT/IN TO THE BUILDING, THERE IS THE SIGN. CLEAR AS DAY. "IT'S FIRST OF THE MONTH, PLEASE PAY YOUR RENT." So, I don't understand. You're so eager to take all of our money. Yet, you can't simply put up a sign on the door as to say there was "construction" going on? Oh, wait, that was a scheme to cheat us during the summer so you can illegally sublet our rooms while we are "away." SCUMS of the earth you guys are!

Where's your proof?

AUTHOR: Kamal Kheridden - ()

Hi. yes. i can be a penis head but you get mad and say what ever but the true is I can take what ever amount I want! you the ripoff because you tell me i scam you? where's your proof? i can do what ever i want. police never can come in contact with me because i run my operation so long-- they know me. so who is the fool now? i take my tenants' money because this is business... what rule is there that says i can not take all deposits? you should be smarter about who take your money... remember, i'm not the only "scum" out there. 

you see me standing out side of 408 w. 36th street building all the time. i keep look out for police just in case so i make sure they not go inside the building. you have proof? show me... oh fake lease... pls upload it. what should real lease look like?

What a fake post, John!

AUTHOR: King Louis - ()

FAKE POST ---> RE: SEPTEMBER 9, 2013

REAL PERSON NEVER APOLOGIZED NOR AUTHORIZED THE USE OF HER NAME.

(THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG, BUT RIPOFFREPORT HAS BEEN UNRESPONSIVE TOWARDS THIS MATTER SINCE THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T REMOVE ANY POST --BLAH BLAH BLAH. HENCE, PEOPLE TAKE THINGS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS. NOT FAIR.)

CONSUMERS, BEWARE! DO NOT RENT AT 408 W. 36TH STREET, NEW YORK, NY 10018 FROM JOHN / CHRISTINE / TOM (KAMAL KHERIDDEN) OR WHOMEVER THE HELL THEY CLAIM TO BE. THEY WILL LIE AND CHEAT YOU OUT OF YOUR MONEY. WILL NOT GIVE YOU BACK YOUR DEPOSITS AND ACCUSE YOU OF ILLEGAL SUBLETTING, WHICH THEY DO THEMSELVES WHEN YOU ARE AWAY ON VACATION WITHOUT YOU KNOWING AT ALL.

SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!! 

PLEASE DO A GOOGLE SEARCH--OR EVEN ON RIPOFFREPORT.COM--OF THE NAME "KAMAL KHERIDDEN" OR "GAMMA LLC" (of NYC, of course). THEY HAVE HAD QUITE A BIT OF REPORTS MADE AGAINST THEM. THEY ARE NOT NICE PEOPLE AND WILL SCAM YOU!

POLICE GOT THEM ON RECORD AS BEING SLEAZEBAGS! FAKE LEASE, FAKE EVERYTHING! DO NOT TRUST THEM! YOUNG BOYS AND GIRLS, DON'T BOTHER LOOKING AT THEIR CRAIGSLIST ADS OR OTHER POSTS ONLINE FOR THEIR ROOMS/APARTMENTS. THEY ARE SCUMBAGS TO THE MILLIONTH POWER.

IF I COULD, I WOULD SPEND MY ENTIRE LIFE WARNING PEOPLE TO STAY AWAY FROM JOHN/CHRISTINE/TOM (KAMAL KHERIDDEN--PACE UNIVERSITY STUDENT?). THEIR SO-CALLED BUSINESS IS GAMMA LLC, BUT REALLY IS JUST THEM--THERE IS NO CORPORATION, NO ANYTHING. IT'S ALL FALSE AND MADE UP TO CREATE AN IMAGE TO DECEIVE NAÏVE/UNSUSPECTING CONSUMERS. THEY'LL DIRECT YOU TO AN EMAIL (SHOWN IN FIRST POST ON THIS PAGE OR AGANYC@AOL.COM) BUT IT'S OBVIOUSLY THEM PRETENDING TO BE SOME BIG SHOT CORPORATION WHEN THEY'RE NOTHING BUT A PIECE OF YOU-KNOW-WHAT!

CONTACT NUMBER: 9176858856 (TOM OR THEY PROBABLY WON'T ANSWER AND WILL SCREEN VOICEMAILS BEFORE EVEN CONSIDERING CALLING BACK (IF YOU'RE LUCKY).

Kamal Kheridden is a big liar!!!

AUTHOR: Rebels - ()

"John" or Kamal Kheridden is just the biggest liar! In regards to the post written on September 9, 2013, it is obviously a false commentary written up by the reported business owner or employee. The author of that post never authorized such use of his/her name. This is a sad (and laughable) attempt on GAMMA LLC's part to retaliate on a report filed against them. Obviously, any person with a right mind would NEVER be so eager to publicly post his/her social security number (or any private information) online with the awareness of rampant cyber identity theft! Consumers/potential renters, beware! "John" or Kamal Kheridden can/will resort to falsely posting under your name (and giving your SSN--well, at least try to, anyway) on sites such as this one, if you happened to file a report against their business. If they could do this to that person mentioned (above), what else could they do? Can you imagine the deception and 'douchebaggery' that they could unleash on a unsuspecting victim? You should NOT rent from them or deal with them in any way! What if they posted again pretending to be someone who hasn't authorized their names and make a false apology or some other comment? 

Again. Just think about it. Who in the world would risk doubly victimizing his/herself by being so willing to offer their SSN such as what "John" did under that former tenant's name? This is clearly an act of retaliation. If other consumers have any doubts about this post, please go search on the Ripoff Report site. Type in "Gamma LLC" and several reports will show up in the results. Take a look at them, and use discretion. 

These GAMMA LLC people are all crooked (but then again, what do you expect from these scums in NYC, right?) and will resort to posting under false identities or unauthorized names.

Please use discretion. (No one's going to really apologize to the reported business/owner/employee on a site such as Ripoff Report if they have already by scammed out of their money and there was absolutely no redress. Only "John" would "appologize" to "John." LOL! Note the spelling in the original post.)

Scammers

AUTHOR: The_Afficianado - ()

You're not the only one who has been scammed or misled. I have lived at the building for a year. They (their so-called "Management"--whoever that is) can do whatever they want with their prices, lie, or cheat you out of your money. Especially if you're young, they rely on the fact that your family isn't around to try to get more money from you. They reel you in with one price for renting but once you get there, they say something else and force you to pay a higher price because apparently, you have to pay for "cleaning fee." By the way, their idea of cleaning is once a month. And, they think that you wouldn't notice if the cleaning lady doesn't come to 2 months! Before renting from "John Giovanni" (the Super, his real name? Don't know but please look up "Kamal Kheridden"--this might be his name but most likely, his son, "Tom"), ask tons of questions! These people are not very honest and will lie up and down just to get your money. Also, they are illegally subletting some people's rooms while they're out on vacation (in the summer). My experience: Spring semester ended and I decided to re-vist my family for the summer but I was still paying rent for the room. When I returned around end of July/early August, the locks were changed so I couldn't into the building. So I waited outside until I can get someone to open. Another tenant who happens to be the new girl in the apartment I was renting in passes by and asked me if I could get access to the building, and I told her, "No. I couldn't. They changed the lock!" She then proceeded to tell me that she couldn't get inside since early July and was told that "construction was going on." However, moments later, I see two people walk out from the building telling me that I couldn't go inside because people aren't allowed to go in due to this construction. I was thinking, 'then, why are they inside?' I have never seen them in my building at all and this building is not that big! They were rude and slammed the door on my foot, and told me to just call John. I even asked them that I still had my things inside my room and the rude girl told me that all my things were thrown away, sounding so sure. But, in fact, I came back a day later, after calling John, my things were all there and in the same way I had left it in late May. How do I know these trifling fools are scamming people? There are other tenants in the building who have said that John said it was construction because he wanted to sublet rooms while the real tenants were away for vacation (without being aware of this fact until after). This is how people never get their security deposits back because they would tell people that the real tenants were the ones who had illegally subletted their rooms! It's incredibly ridiculous what these Kheriddens are doing!

By the way, "Tom" is an aspiring DJ around New Jersey and New York. You should type his name on Google, "Kamal Kheridden" or his brother, "Kamel Kheridden." They do dirty business just like "John" (their father). This man lied from the get-go. Things he shouldn't really have to lie about, he did. I don't get why he told people he's Italian (he has an foreign accent) when in fact, he's not and speaks Arabic! Come on, it's not that serious to let people know about your ethnic background. Why should we care? Anyway, this is just strange to lie about. The biggest thing he and Christine (if that's her real name--the blonde woman who's always there with them) have done is scamming you out of your money when they have said/agreed on one thing but then later on change it to suit whatever they feel is necessary for them.

Young girls, especially, please be aware. John gets too excited (he's inappropriate) to see single young girls around. He has taken his shirt off in front of me when I thought I was the only one in the apartment. I had NO IDEA he was living in the room across from mine when I first moved in--it scared me to know that a 40-50 year old man was staying there! I wouldn't have moved in if I knew he was going to be staying in that room. I had little choice at the time. Christine, who showed me the apartment, didn't inform me that he was staying there. As a matter of fact, when I asked who is in that room, she skipped around saying things and changed the subject. Since I was in a rush to find a place, she had agreed that I would pay $1000 for the smallest room there. So, I (and my parents who there with me) thought, 'OK, fine. That's it.' However, a month later, they send an email telling me that I owe that another $200, which means I would be paying $1200 for a small closet-sized room. In their (fake) lease, it stated $1000 for the room (and $200 fee UPON moving in). So, they have cheated me when my parents were not around and could not come to resolve it, and I was left with no other option because I'm a student alone in the city with a limited amount of money and the semester has just gotten really hectic. The scamming is easy when they force young girls/students into a corner. So, please, young adults, be careful! These people will eventually get caught. They've gotten away up until now, but someone should really check them out (LEGALLY). Karma will come back and get you...
