I hope you read this and clear your reputation, your name and refund the entire sum of $2,500.00 that you owe me and never conduct yourself in such a seemingly decptive manner with anyone and everyone who does business with you. If you decide not to clear your reputation and name by making things right with me, I hope that everyone who is consdiering doing business with you reads this so they know exactly how you engage others in business.
On March 1, 2013, I sent Grant Bauer a check for $1750.00 for a vacation rental he has that I was planning to stay at in November 2013. On June 11, 2013, I paid him an additional $750.00 toward my stay.
On July 12, 2013, I had to cancel my reservation because I would be unable to make the trip as scheduled. According to the contract I signed with him, any cancellation made before 30 days prior to check in, would be entitled to a $100% refund.
When I didn't receive my refund on a timely basis, I sent via FedEx (with a signature required) a letter to Grant saying that I would give him until August 21, 2013 to refund my money in full or that I would make my complaint about his business practices as public as possible and take all legal and civil action against him (including reporting him to the New Mexico Board of Private Investigators and the Arizona Board of Private Investigators for unethical conduct).
Grant has promised me in writing via E-mail AND on the phone that he "would make good" on the money he owes me and to date I have not received one dime.
I researched him some more and found that others have complained that he owes them money and when he does pay, his checks tend to bounce on occassion.
Upon my last email exchange with him earlier this week, he said that he would issue me a payment. It is currently Saturday and my mailbox has nothing from him.
When I learned that Grant has a history of this behavior with others, I contacted the local news stations to bring awareness to this issue so others don't have to go through what I am going through to get my money back. An invesigation is underway.
Grant, if I receive payment from you IN FULL, I will come back and state the fact here, and to the newstations and to the licensing boards I have contacted.
I will never, ever do business with Grant Bauer again in any capacity and I urge anyone to google him (e.g., "Grant Bauer reviews") to see what similar problems others have had with him--you may want to keep on looking for another person to do business with once you do.
People work hard for their money--it isn't right that Grant Bauer has not paid me the money he is contractually obligated to. Don't let this happen to you. (But if it has, please contact me if you would like to be included in the news/press story currently being worked on.)
