I was in the process of moving to hollywood california and looking for a high end condo to rent. There were these gorgeous luxury condos across the street from my friend's apartment building that I fell in love with. After searching there internet for the number to reach the manager I finally found a few listings for the building. I called the number and set up an appointment to see the property. The next morning I met up with Ashton at the building for a tour. Everything seemed great and I lived the place. I face him my info and returned back home to utah to start getting everything ready to move. He called me almost everyday trying to get me to put the deposit down over his website paypal account. Even though I want planning on moving for another month when my lease was up. He constantly kept trying to convince us that her needed the deposit so he could show the owners we were serious. Which was weird to us. We had filed out the app and were told that we were approved and everything was ready to go. We tod him that when we were ready to move down there we would pay our deposit and rent. Which is the normal thing to do I thought. After a few weeks of him telling us we needed the deposit we gave in seeing it was close to our departure. That's when all the problems started. He called the next day stating that he needed us to full out another application. Well, 1 we were supposedly already approved. 2 did you lose our application? Giving him the benefit of the doubt we faxed over another app. A few days later he said that he was going to meet with the owners to get everything ready. He called after the meeting and once again said we were good to go. now mind you. We packed our house and had a uhaul ready to go and on our way to california. The next thing we know the day before our planned departure day he called and said there was a problem with our application and that the deposit was non refundable!! He hung up the phone and hasn't answered since. I scoured the internet trying to find the number of the building directly since it was a privately owned building and had no website.. I finally found a number and called.. I spoke with the manager of the building and to our suprise she had never even gotten or seen our application. So basically he was playing us from the beginning. It just amazes me that someone would put their license on the line for a couple thousands dollars . Beware of this crook

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Dear Mr. Dishonest!

AUTHOR: Ashton - (United States of America)

Dear Mr. Dishonest,

I met with your fiancee to show a luxury condo in Hollywood in a 24/7 secured building with security person and you have to sign to get in. We showed her the condo. If this condo was not our listing how did we get in and show it? First your fiancee informed me this condo was only for her and she sounded very interested so she submitted an application. She told me that she was a very famous actress in the Pirates of Carribian movie. I saw that movie so many times looking for her and she was MIA. We checked her credit which met owner's criteria and approved her credit. We called the studios to see if she is an actress found out she was a liar.

We informed her, her credit was good but we could not verify her employment or income. She suddenly informed me that her fiancee was also coming from Utah and he was a millionaire so income and employment he could provide. I received a call from this individual claiming to be a multi millionaire and submitted an application. For hours I tried to explain to this so called multi millionaire that just because we approved your credit it doesn't mean the condo is yours. You have to show means that you can pay for the rent.  But this guy just did not understand.

I told this couple that they have to show proof of income or employment if they wanted that condo. They said they needed time to gather info for their income. I told we are not going to wait so they asked me if they could put a deposit to hold this unit while they gather their info. We told these people if by any chance they can not provide their income verification the deposit is NON REFUNDABLE and they will lose it. They said no problem they were multi millionaire.

We asked them for bank statements, they had no bank statements responding we don't deal with banks. We asked them for any income verification they could not provide. As a result they lied and lost their deposit. I can see their frustuation but why this is our fault? They gave the deposit to the owner, they lied on their application, they could not provide documentation regarding their income and owner decided to keep their deposit.

If they though it was unfair to lose their deposit why they didn't contact the owner of the building to get it refunded? But they said they gave me the money (another lie). What owner holds an apartment empty without getting a deposit? Throughout this whole process they were in direct contact with the owner of the building. Then they say the building manager didn't even know who I was so how could I have gotten in the building to show this high end luxury condo in a 24/7 security building.

It is easy to get on this website Ripp Off Report and say bunch lies or stories like this that absolutely does not make any sense to ruin a person or company reputation.
