Booked and paid over a month in advance for a 1-week stay in a 3BR condo so we could invite guests to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday.  Literally the day before check-in, the owner - Andrew Vantine - required that I sign a rental agreement and disclose credit card and other information.  It also restricts the number of people I can have in the 3 BR apartment to 4, unless I want to pay an additional $75pp/pn.  I complained to Expedia - the vendor I had done business with, after all - and got a lot of lip service.  The supervisor - "Marvin" - even said that Andrew was within his rights to charge me because I hadn't specified that there would be more than 1 person staying in the 3BR when I booked it!!!  As a big accommodaation, Expedia refunded me 1/2 of what I paid and took absolutely no responsibility for representing this scum bucket.

I had explained to Andrew that he had made me very uncomfortable and I didn't want to stay in his property any longer, especially with my daughter, and asked that refund my money and, in exchange, I wouldn't post anything.  Well GUESS WHAT ...

Got some of my money back but - perjury?

AUTHOR: - ()

POSTED: Thursday, July 06, 2017

This "person" confirmed every single part of my complaint with the Texas Attorney General.  His response, in part, is that I had: 

"reserved my condo for 1 adult. As I was checking her in she stated that there would actually be 6 guests in the condo, not one, so I advised her that there was an extra person fee of $25 per person per night over 4 so she would have to pay an additional $350."

The listing on Expedia didn't have anything about this.

"She told me she wasn't paying me another penny, so I told her that I would not give her access to the condo if she did not pay and that the reservation was non refundable as stated on the Expedia Website."

That is the better part of my complaint, and he admitted all of it.

Here's the part that I want to bring to the AG's attention as potential perjury - this phrase appears in bold & all-caps right above his signature line on the AG's form:  "THE ABOVE STATEMENTS ARE TRUE AND ACCURATE TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE."  If the statements are not true, and he knows they are not true, is that perjury?  What is it he said that is not true? 

"the reservation is non refundable as I only have one condo"

He owns a 2 BR in the same building.  I know because I'd initially considered reserving that one too.  He also owns at least one other condo that is listed on Expedia and TripAdvisor as "La Isla."  So that's 3 that I know about.

And he actually wrote it down. !!!!

So, he still has over $1500 of my money and he has the unmitigated gall to write "I feel as if she thinks she can do whatever she wants as she is an attorney."  If only liars and thieves were afraid of attorneys.
