NOW TO THE REPORT/POSTING(S) THAT HAS BEEN EDITORIALLY REDACTED:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

I went to this apartment building in order to find an apartment to rent because the sign outside indicated that there is vacancies. I entered the door that was ajar and went into the Manager's Office. I asked around to people walking around if they know where the Manager is and everyone coming and going said that the apartment manager is usually never around. I waited by the door of the apartment manager office for about an hour since my ride wasn't coming back until 11AM. The Manager finally arrived and asked me if he could help me. I told him that I wanted to look at the aprtment for rent. He then said that me that there is a lot of noise around here and that If have a problem with lots of noise, I probably wouldn't like it here. I asked to see the apartment anyways and he reluctantly showed it to me. It looked good enough and I told him that I'll take it. He then informed me that there is a long application process and that I have to go get a money order or cashiers check for the deposit. I asked him to wait and told him that I would be right back. My ride arrived, so I went to go get the deposit around the corner at a 7-eleven store. When I came back the manager was nowhere to be found again. I waited and waited for 2 hours and he finally arrived. He told me at this time that the apartment had been rented to someone else in the mean time and that I didn't return fast enough. I informed him that I was only 15 minutes and then he told me something that I will never forget. He told me "Look, we just don't like your kind around here!" He turned around and walked into his office and I just left. Ning Long Beach, California

connection?

AUTHOR: Belle - (U.S.A.)

What's the connection between lived in Venice Blvd and sexual preferences? When you said (((REDACTED))) do you mean underage kids? Or.....? I just want to know because I know a friend that lives in the building and there are kids living in there.

Respond to this report!

#2 Consumer Comment

Predator?

AUTHOR: Dave - (Canada)

Sure you were treated poorly, I don't follow the jump to (((REDACTED)))

#3 Consumer Comment

Huh?

AUTHOR: Elizabeth - (U.S.A.)

First allow me to say that I think its a bit over the line to post someone's Social Security number on the internet. Second, I don't see how you can say this person is a (((REDACTED))). You never stated he hit on you in any way or that he was drooling over small children in the courtyard. If he's gay, he's gay. Big deal. Being gay does not make someone a pervert or a (((REDACTED))). You may not agree with their choices in sexual partners but that is your OPINION, nothing more. And no, I am not gay or a l*****n. Its possible that you were discriminated against however its also possible that he chose not to rent to you for other reasons. Are you very young? Older? Is this a complex full of young singles and he thought if you are an older person you would have a problem with partying and noise? I think the way he treated you was pretty rotten, he could have been much more polite and if it was (((REDACTED))) then he's a real clod. However, unless there's something you left out, he's not a (((REDACTED))), just an ignorant bigot.

#5 Consumer Comment

If you don't live there, how could there be retribution?

AUTHOR: Scott - (U.S.A.)

If you truly believe you have been discriminated against, then make a report to your local housing authority.

Since you didn't fill out an application and no money exchanged hands, how can there be any kind of retribution? He can't run a credit check on you, and is not holding a deposit.

I Forgot to Mention

AUTHOR: Jody - (U.S.A.)

There were other things involved but since I cant give victims names or describe in too much detail that he knows who complained there will be retribution. Sorry.
