I recieved a letter from RPM UTILITIES, INC. about 6 months after we bought our house (around November 2006) saying we owed a few thousand dollars for not paying my "annual water facility charges". After getting this letter which was sent from Musselman Dodge in Glen Burnie, Maryland (that was the return address on the envelop) I spoke with a couple of my neighbors and some recieved the same exact letter even down to owing the same amount of money for their address. Beings that we pay all our bills and the neighbors I spoke with claimed they did as well I paid no attention to it.
Then in 2009 I recieved a letter from the same company name now with a different address and phone number. The address was to a P.O. Box now which was located in Crownsville, Maryland. When looking up the phone number it was still connected with Musselman Dodge. I paid no mind to this letter since it was a different amount for their services this time and there were numerous typos (looked like my kindergardner wrote it.... LITERALLY) and we were charged for a different beginning date (I dont even think the house was here when they were saying we owed money for). After recieving the 1st letter a spoke with a few other neighbors and did some investigating which included speaking with the Eastern District Police Station (my local police station) and then spoke with the police stations located near Musselman Dodge and then in Crownsville, which all said they have NEVER heard of these type of charges except for your water bill from the state. After that I spoke to an attorney just to get an opinion and thats where I got the best information I could get. The lawyer said he has heard of this type of SCAM going around and told me not to pay it (which I wasnt anyway) and he would call me back in a few days after he gathers some information. I got a call the next day from the lawyer who said this is in fcat a SCAM and he also found out this guy Robert Musselman Sr. was sued by a number of people and companies for ripping them off for car repairs and various other services.
Today February 20, 2013 I was sitting in my house watching T.V. and I heard something at my door, it wasnt a knock it was some noise. I then got up and saw a white work type van with temporary paper tags on it leaving my house and then I noticed something on the window of my door. I then got the thing off my window of my door and it was a letter from RPM UTILITIES, INC. yet again. Noone knocked on the door or let me know they were there. Meanwhile there was a car in the driveway and the T.V. was on which I am sure they could hear. Now the letter is saying I owe 4,000.00 which I owed 3,000.00 on the first bill the new letter which says I only owed 350.00. I have an elderly lady living next door to me and she has been paying this SCAM of a bill and I feel really bad for her because of this being a scam.
Please feel free to contact me or leave a comment about this if you have recieved anything simular or the same or heard of something like this. I would like to get a class action lawsuit together, however only my next door neighbor and I are involved right now.
