Mr. Willson is not a credible or honest individual

AUTHOR: Niklas Design - ()

It is very unfortunate Mr. Willson has chosen to be vindictive, as to blame me for his issues and posting phony report(s) against me. He should have done his due diligence prior to involving my name for a report on about him.  Mr. Willson showed interest in a property I listed for rent in 2011.  However, I discovered that he presented false references and he was dishonest about his assets, work history and criminal background to obtain the rental. His daily drinking coupled with erratic behavior produced unpredictable results. Within a few weeks of moving in he lost a job which he claimed he had recently acquired, and that a family member was going to be paying for his rent for him. This greatly concerned me and I began to worry about liability and my personal safety as well as his.  

I sat him down and confronted him regarding falsifying his credentials and his continuous drinking.
He confessed the following:

• He lived on donations for many years from family and friends.
• Admitted he was lying about his business income as his business was in debt.
• He verified he was unemployed for at least 6 years.
• He used home addresses of relatives as he was homeless on few occasions.

He made promises to me time after time that his family was going to pay his expenses including his rent until he was able to do this himself.  As his visits to the liquor store multiplied so did his lies, empty promises, and excuses. He said, he was working on getting a job, and could cover rent and maintain a well-kept space. I was very concerned with his behavior. I received a blocked call and the caller asked me if Todd Willson was near death from his drinking. At that point, I asked him to sign a special liability agreement in case he tried to fabricate a lawsuit or actually hurt himself.

Now he has randomly surfaced again, making derogatory claims against me because he is oblivious, forgetting who he has been lying to before, during and after he lied to me. I have nothing to do with Mr. Willson and his failing business or frustrations. I watched his behavior and mannerisms decline as his alcohol use rapidly increased.  As a result, he never stopped to think about the impact of his behavior(s). I did not engage in any kind of business with him. I only rented to him, and even with his relatives paying rent. He managed to pay rent late or had to short me in rent to buy alcohol. There is no reasoning that can be done with an alcoholic and Mr. Willson is not a credible or honest individual due to his troubles and chemical dependency.

Phony report submitted by Todd M. W****

AUTHOR: Niklas Design - ()

This is a phony report submitted by Mr. Todd M. W**** and has nothing to do with reality or what I do. Todd is upset because he used false information to rent in one of my properties. I questioned his information when all of a sudden he was not able to make rent payments. His brother Christopher paid for his rent for several months as Todd was drinking and getting trashed every day. He was not motivated to find a job using a number of excuses as he sat intoxicated and helpless. Todd has a serious chemical dependency and he was looking for a

it because apparent that he was looking for ways to not work and I became aware that he wanted to fake a slip and fall accident of some kind.

This is a phony report for the following reasons:
1) I did not engage in any kind of business with Mr. Todd W****.
2) Refused to do any kind of deal with Mr. W**** and I charged him rent that was fair.
3) I did not engage with him in any business activity and his rent was paid by his brother
3) I don't engage in any kind of business in Florida and this is a false identity.
4) I screen clients and this is not a paid client or anyone who I have offered a service to.
4) I am up front with my fees and I don't outsource work because quality can't be sustained.
5) The report below was written by an intoxicated individual as there is no logic or sequence from one thought to the next.

Fake report submitted by Todd M. W****

AUTHOR: Niklas Design - ()

This a fake report submitted by a renter (Mr. Todd M. W****) for one of my properties who I had to terminate. Mr. Todd M. W**** us upset because he was not able to pull a scam on me or my property.

Due to his chemical dependency issues and  long term unemployment he was not able to pay rent outside of his first month rent. At age 43, he had his brother pay for his rent finding excuses why he did not have the rent money. Todd in his "dreams and his dreams only" was working on million dollar investment and real-estate deals but nothing less.

I have never done any kind of business with Mr. Todd M. W**** or anyone in Florida where the fake report was filed at. I did not engage in any kind of business in Florida. I work hard and run a legitimate business otherwise I would be wasting my time. I feel sorry for someone like Todd but he needs to go to AA and stop drinking before he drink to him death.
