I lived in an apt and my daughter was attacked by a pitbull which weren't supposed to be allowed in complex. Dogs still there and management didn't do anything about it so I moved. Stayed in contact with the manager several times throughout the next month asking about my deposit. About 34 days later I finally got the manager on the phone telling me they kept my deposit and wrote off my debt for repairs. 2 hrs later a collection co calls demanding I pay almost $1000.00 I told them I wanted a bill in writing sent to me.
I received nothing from either party the apt and the collections. I went in person a few days later to apt asking for receipts and proof of breakdown. They refused and printed out my history an showed late rent fees when I told her I had receipts proving I paid on time and $555 clean carpet and such. She told me my file was given to collections 10 days after I moved out so she can't provide a copy of my walkthrough proving I didn't owe and to deal with the collections. I then certified a letter to apt demanding my deposit and they refused it. I also received an eviction notice a month after I moved which thankfully wasn't filed with a constable since it was bogus!
Meanwhile collection agency has a lawsuit against me which was the first thing I received from them and I answered the summons the best I could and now have a motion for discovery.
They refuse to reason even with my proof and threatened I'm goin to be garnished. What do I do? I have no money for a lawyer I'm a single mom making $13 an hr. I have 2 different sets of breakdowns from their lawyers that don't match.
Can I sue the apartments for not sending me anything and for my kid being attacked? Can i still counter sue sentry & recovery as well? Please any help would be appreciated or guidance. My name is Stefanie (((ROR redacted))). I do not owe them. CLICK here to see why Rip-off Report, as a matter of policy, deleted either a phone number, link or e-mail address from this Report.
