IFC REALTY/ ARIE ABEKASIS I was Robbed by this man. Gave me terrible advice and took my money, Internet *EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back into your bank account when someone wrongfully takes it from you!
I can to Mr Abekasis with a Loan Modification already in hand.  He advised me the Loan modification was no good and that I should pay him to sue the lender.  He said he owned a law firm.  Turns out all I had to do was sign the loan mod and I would have been fine.  Instead I paid him over $4000 dollars which he took and did nothing. Now my loan mod was taken off the table and I have a sale date on my property for Feb 1st.  When I contacted Mr Abvekasis about this he told me he could stop the sale but Id have to pay him more money.  After reading the first 2 posts It makes me wondewr what kind of animal am I dealing with?  I hope no one else gets burned like me EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back! HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO: Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARDIf the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action. And good luck Let us know how you do!ED Magedson Founder Author of www.ripoffrevenge.comRip-off Report PO Box 310, Tempe, Arizona 85280

ARIE ABEKASIS IFC REALTY I Deeded my House to Abekasis almost 2 years ago and now I live with my Parents Sherman Oaks, California
I deeded my house to this man back in Mar 2010.  He promised me that he would rent my house out for me for a 20% fee.  He also said I had to deed the house to him to make it legal.  I feel like such an idiot.  I ofcourse deeded it over and he rented it as promised.  Except for the fact I never saw a dime.  He took all the money and left me holding the bag wityh the lender.  Whats worse is I couldnt get the people out of the house cause it went into foreclosure but abekasis still collected rent.  In fact I believe the renters are still there today.  I dont have much money so I couldnt find an attorney to take my case.  When I saw this website and his name on it I had to chime in.  Stay away form this guy hes trouble

Arie Abekasis Diditan Financial Diditan Group Arie Abekasis of Diditan Financial home loans and refinance rips off employees and fakes business identity Van Nuys California
Arie Abekasis is the owner of Diditan Group luxury home builder in Los Angeles and Arie Abekasis is founder of Diditan Financial, as mortgage company that offers home loans, mortgage refinance, short sales and home loan modifications.  First, I want to make it very clear that I was employed as a freelance SEO and web developer for Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial, and did some random work, for free, for Diditan Group home builders. I was never a customer. However, the way Arie Abekasis treated me and the lies he tells about Diditan Financial is a clear reflection of how he does business, how the public is in danger of falling prey to his dishonesty, and therefore as a consumer and member of the Los Angeles public, I feel it is my duty to warn people who may seek Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial for a home loan, and warn people who are considering working with Arie Abekasis. This is a copy-and-paste from my e-mail showing proof that Arie Abekasis does not value people, especially people who work for him and those who are not full-time. It also shows he admits to having an unstable daisy chain business and it is so bad he won't pay his people on time. Is this someone you would want to get a home loan from, or work for? If you want to see the original e-mail in its raw form, contact me and I will send it to you:     Jen Saunders  Oct 1   to Telma, Telma, Arie     Hi Telma,   I am writing to let you know that the payment due on October 1, 2016 was not received. Please send a check for $550.00 ($500 for the services performed as outlined on the invoice, and $50 for the late fee) to the following address, ASAP. Thank you.  Oct 1   to M, me, Telma, Telma     You keep your demanding language for your self, If you don't like it you can quit, we are all running on a daisy chain in business and if you don't understand it you should go work a full time job and I am sure you will get paid like a clock. Sometimes business is short and if it gets delays is because it carries from others, next time you will approach us this way I will simply move on. Sent from my iPhone   Thanks & Rgds   Arie Abekasis   -----------------------------------   What This E-mail Says About Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial.    First, I should add in what was almost a year I worked on the Diditan Financial website for Arie Abekasis, he only paid me on time twice. He ignored my constant e-mails stressing that it was important for me to be paid on time, and as I was only charging him $500 a month for something I normally get paid triple for, one would think he would comply. The reason I did this work for cheap was because he said he was financially strapped, and at first he struck me as a good person. Lesson learned. So, here you see that my late payment notification e-mail is direct, straightforward, and professional. You can see by the ridiculous response by Arie Abekasis, that the following hold true:   Being paid on time is demanding The if you don't like it, you can quit is a subtle way to say I will fire you if you demand to get paid on time (I fired him, by the way) He admits to running a daisy chain business, which is frightening considering it is for home loans in Los Angeles He thinks only people with full-time jobs deserve to get paid on time (Google me, I hold a full-time executive position for a digital marketing agency...I just do off jobs on the side because it is fun) He admits his business is short and that others cause delays in his business. This shows it is not stable or being run efficiently to best serve clients who go to Arie Abekasis for a home loan.  Other Things to Say About Arie Abekasis and Diditan Financial: He is not licensed, insured or bonded Diditan Financial says they are an in-house company of agents, finance experts and builders. This is a lie. He simply sends people out to realtors he knows and collects referral fee checks (and I bet he expects to be paid on time) He probably doesn't value his customers. Think about it, most people who need to refinance their home loan or get a short sale do so because they are strapped for cash, and losing your job is the number one reason why people face losing their homes. I bet lots of people who do freelance work or part-time work are his ideal customers because they likely need a home loan refinance or short sale more than someone well-to-do with a full time job. Rather hypocritical.  Arie Abekasis still never fully paid me what he owed. He made a direct deposit into my account that was $50 short, and two weeks past due. His failure to pay me on time, as par our working agreement, made my life a living hell as I had a new financial obligation in which another person was relying on me for help. His poor business ethics hurt others. Had he told me from the start that he would not be able to pay me on time, I wouldn't have worked with him. It is a bad sign. But he gave me every impression it was fine, and made working with him a pain in the ass. At the end of the day Arie Abekasis is nothing but a salesman who knows how to charm people and manipulate them. I learned a lesson in dealing with him. i will never help another person again by giving them a cheap rate, no matter how great they seem. Arie Abekasis destroyed my trust in others. I also feel bad for the people going forward who will work with him, and any poor client who gets suckered in to his daisy chain business that is oh so delicate things fall apart and money is short.

Another scam victim. As others have stated, equipment was already in place and running and the terms, including what it would cost me monthly, already established when I get an innocent looking form to sign that states part of the payment would go to a leasing company specifically IFC credit corp. Slick scam! I guess Sprint and T Mobile didn't see it coming either. Neither did Norvergence employees. Undoubtedly they lost thousands. Am not intending on paying lease company a dime more.

Arie Davis complete liar and did not pay the employee's correctly did not pay me on my last check the correct amount Alexandria Virginia
I worked for a contract company called ADM in Alexandria Virginia for 2 weeks and it was the worst job I have ever had.  The head person Arie Davis was not organized and had me work an event that she was suppose to work with me but she could not as she had her mother and kids with her and they were not on the list to get on the Naval base in Solomons Island Maryland.   The event was to take place at 5pm and she did not have the car that was suppose to be at the event and the setup was not done until 4:30 pm and it was suppose to be setup at 2pm.  I got the tent setup by myself and she was suppose to be there to help and do the event with me but she could not get on the base as she knew she had to have the names of all the individuals on the list and she showed up and was not allowed access to enter as she had her mother and children with her and they were not on the list.  The event went well because of me and I did get 201 leads on that day and was told by Arie only 77 were good leads and that I lost money for her since I did not get 150 good leads and she never should have sent me to do the event and it was a waste of her time.   I was suppose to get $2.00 for each lead and did not get that and was told I got a red flag which I did not get paid for because I did not show up for work at my scheduled time which was a total lie.   Arie did not pay alot of the employee's correctly and she expected people to work on the weekends from 6:30pm to 12:30am and made us lie on the phone to the customers, saying we were not a timeshare at all when we truly were.  Arie came up with words and a script for us to read to the customers who received the promotion in the mail and if the customer said no they were not interested she had us call them back to see if we could persuade them to attend the orientation for 90 minutes on talk about travel and the orientation had nothing to do with travel.   Alot of customers who did go said they never received their vouchers for the air or the cruise and that the company is a ripoff which I agree it is.   I told Arie I was leaving as I could not work for a company that lies and she said that I could make a lot of money which was a bunch of crap and that working commission is so much better than working an hourly job and that I would break the contract with her if I left, I told her I could leave at anytime and that she had no hold over me and she said I was an evil person and that she never should have hired me and that I was not to talk to any of the contractors at ADM and that if I did she would get a lawyer on me.  She even said she was going to deduct $200.00 from my check for a tent that is her mothers that was left at a car dealership and said if I did not go get it and take it to her mothers house she was not going to pay me, I told her I was not responsible for that tent and she did not pay me the $200.00.   Arie uses her own words to try to get what she wants out of the people who get hired and they do not stay long as they know how manipulative she can be.    Arie does not care about the employee's at all and she does not care if you have a life and family she wants you to be there for her all the time and do as she says and if you do not she gets upset.  I have had people on the phone say to me the company is not legit and it is a ripoff and they were going to report it ot the better business bureau and they knew we were lying on the phone.     Arie every week is having open house to hire new people because when she hires the people are leaving so quickly due to the company being a fraud and not following through and lying to everyone.   Johnny Mercado

Norvergence & IFC Credit SCAM, RIPOFF, DON'T PAY YOUR LEASE PAYMENTS locked into longterm Matrix Box leases NEWARK New Jersey *EDitor's Comment ..Class Action lawsuit useless
I don't need to go through the scam again, but anybody who has been had by Norvergence Corp., and is locked into longterm Matrix Box leases. I feel a reasonable court would see that most of the money Novergence received from the leasing companies was for future services, never provided. I feel the courts might view that the leasing companies would be entitled to the value of the box, and not the inflated cost which included services never received. Why were the leasing companies represented at the bancrupcy hearings, because they knew that Norvergence had a responsibility to the leasing companies for the amounts over the cost of the box. Ask your leasing company for a copy of the original purchase of the box. You will see, in all cases, the leasing companies purchased the boxes from Norvergence directly, and not from the manufacturer. Therefore they were aware, or should have been aware, that they were financing a Matrix Box and a promise for service; two components of the same lease. I also feel that we should start a discussion board for all Norvergence customers so we can establish a tact that will ultimately void are contracts. Anybody wronged by Norvergence please fel free to contact me. I feel we can win this!!!!! Michael Island Park, New YorkU.S.A. Norvergence Victims... ..It is the opinion of Rip-off Report staff that a Class Action will not work in this situation and will only lead victims down a long path of disappointment. In order for an attorney to take on such a case, there needs to be money. NorVergence clearly went belie-UP! / defunked / Bankrupt, which means, there is NO MONEY! Once a bonafide lawyer contacts Rip-off Report with a plan, we will be glad to make arrangements with them to e-mail those of you who filed a Rip-off Report.

We were taken by this company too. I wish we would've gotten out sooner. After 2 months of calling every day to get a status of my refund after we cancelled our contract I finally got an answer - only it was to call Hess Kennedy Receivership. This number reffered me to another phone number where I have left multiple messages and never received a call back. I finally found a website with a claim form to file on them and in the meantime we are in the process of filing for bankruptcy. This was the worst mistake we have ever made.

Arie Nol Auto Center Riped of my K&N air filter Kentwood Michigan
I took my car into Arie Nol, Nov 3, 2008 for a miss firing cylinder while my car was in their shop they also did a tuneup, which I'm not sure if that was completely necessary or not. In the process of doing the tuneup they took my lifetime K&N air filter out and replaced it with a regular paper filter. When I went in to pick up my car I didn't even pay attention to what they listed on workorder 53004 $499.13 of the parts that they replaced, I just paid it and left. On April 14,2009 I need my oil change and my friend that normaly changes it was busy so I took it to Performance Plus for the oil change. I get my oil changed when my car tell me to which is longer than 3 months. The normal time frame over the last two years is every 5 months. I explained to Mark that the car has a K&N air filter in it. Mark at Performance Plus wasn't busy so he said he would check the K&N air filter out, to our surprise I no longer had a K&N air filter in my vehicle. Not thinking about it, Mark said that the K&N sticker should not be on the outside of where the filter goes, so he removed the sticker and though it away. Two days later I called Jeff Nol and told him that I had my car into his center in Nov. and wanted to know what he did and what parts they replaced. He found my workorder and named the parts, when he got to the air filter I said that's the problem because I had a K&N in my vehicle. He proceeded to say no you didn't because my guys know better not to throw them away, that they have the kits to clean the K&N and they wouldn't throw it away. I said well they did because I explained when the car went into his shop it had the filter in it and now it doesn't. He said that I took the car some place else since Nov and they took it out. I told him that the car has not been serviced any where else since Nov. He started yelling at me and said your car did not have a K&N when you brought it in. On 5-5-09 I went back to Performance Plus and had Mark wrote up a statement of what happened while my car was at his shop and explained about taking the sticker of my car. My proof to Mr Nol is as follows: The original receipt when I purchased the K&N air filter 8-14-2005. The credit card charge on my GM statement. The box for the filter & cleaning solution plus instructions for installation & cleaning. Two years of receipts of my oil changes showing that a air filter has never been purchased. A statement from my friend that changed my oil that he has serviced the filter for two years. His statement that on Oct 15, 2008 which is 18 days before going into Arie Nol's center my car had the K&N filter in it. A picture showing were the sticker was on my air filter holder. I reported him to the BBB & ASA, never heard from the ASA and the BBB just closed the case because Jeff Nol would not reimburse me 100.00 for a new filter and have it installed someplace else or he wouldn't replace the filter and install it there with me precent. Over a six month period I spent almost 900.00 on car repairs at his auto center and he can't show good customer relations and replace a 50.00 air filter that he shouldn't have taken out in the first place. I have a 2000 LeSabre, Buick and you know I'm going to have more repairs in the future, and he wouldn't admit that his center made an error. I have also heard from the lady at Advance Auto Parts that she knows several more people that has had problems with the Arie Nol Auto Center. It's not right that he's getting away with his bad service, taking things out of people cars that he shouldn't and treat people the way he does by calling them a lair. I have proven that he is in the wrong and he still won't make it right. I am trying to spread the word but I don't know how much I can do on my own, therefore your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Linda Grandville, MichiganU.S.A.

Norvergence - IFC Leasing Ripoff, Telecommunications Scam on a National Level, Leasing Agencies In On It New Jersey New York
We are a small family owned business in Texas. Our company was approached by a sales rep from Norvergence. He told us a great fairy tale about a magic box called a Matrix box that could reduce our total telecommunications bills by 20-30%. All he needed was our current bills to give us an estimate. He returned with a grand promise to lower our expenses by almost $8,000 a year. We just needed to sign a few documents. We asked him what would happen if the company went out of business since the agreement was for 5 years. He told us they had agreements in place with such giants as Sprint, Nortel, Qwest Communications and T-Mobile. These companies would guarantee us service for the full five years and at the current rates regardless of Norvergence. They coupled our T1, 6 phone lines, cell phones, 800 numbers and fax lines into one bill. It was alleging to save us good money. It had the Giants of Communications logos at the top of their letterhead. I called 20 references in the Great State of Texas and all said they had done what they said would. So, we signed the leasing agreement of the Matrix box. They sent us a new phone system for free. It is a nice phone system. It sat in a box for 5 months before it was ever installed. The magic Matrix box sat in a closet for 4 months before it was installed. The services were NEVER connected. As part of the agreement, they promised to buy you out of your present contract with your phone companies. They never did that. We paid both our old phone company and the lease payments for 4 months. Norvergence promised they would send assistance checks to cover our expenses for paying two companies. We got one and never another. We signed in December. Our lease was sold to IFC leasing in March '04. We got bills from them but no communication. We got our cell phones in June! JUNE! Norvergence was forced into Chapter 11. The courts turned it into a Chapter 7, liquidation. Qwest terminated all service to Norvergence customers. Sprint and T-Mobile were allowed to do the same. Sprint contacted us, however, and helped us port our numbers over to them directly and gave us a deal on cell phone usage. The leasing companies were now demanding that we make our payments and threats were issued on numerous occasions. We have made all our payments despite the fact that the equipment is useless. We contacted our old carrier. WE HAD NEVER BEEN REMOVED FROM THEIR SERVICE! They never recieved anything requesting that our numbers be moved to Norvergence. They hadn't even been contacted. They sent over a tech guy to inspect our lines. The tech guy removed the Norvergence box from the wall and unplugged it. NOTHING HAPPENED! Nothing was connected to this box. Everything was just as it had been before this nightmare got started. We had been paying for nothing. We had been paying for a black box to be installed in our telephone closet as a decoration. We contacted the leasing company and informed them we were sending them the equipment and stopping all payments. They informed us they would accelerate our payments and seek legal action to force us to pay in full. 60 months at $500.00 a month is a $30,000 useless piece of equipment! The bankruptcy hearings were held in New York the first week in July. Norvergence was represented. The Giants of telecommunications were represented. The leasing companies were represented. The 11,000+ customers that signed contracts with Norvergence were not represented at this hearing. All of us are left trying to find a legal way out of this hostage situation. The leasing companies are holding us hostage to these leases despite their invalidity. Small business all across America are struggling paying their leases and their new service they had to get connected when Qwest terminated services. Not to mention a lot of these companies were issued back bills from their former communications companies that Norvergence never paid. Where does it end? This was a scam of the largest proportions that specifically targeted small companies across the country. The media isn't picking up this story. It needs to be heard. There are others out there that need to join with us to get out of our leases. Inflexion is being presented to businesses as we speak. This is the Norvergence scam with a new name! Be careful!!

International Fulfillment Corporation credit card internet ripoff Coldwater Michigan
I too received a phone call from Fulfillment International Corporation telling me that I was won of the 83 people who had won this fantastic holiday package worth $5,500 ! Angela Di Vittorio, my Personal Promotions Director, employee number 904, even went as far as to tell me that even my flights all the way from Ireland were included and all I had to pay was their costs of administering this competition of $498 per person and the customer import and departure tax for the Bahamas portion of the package of $269pp. I first smelled a rat when she told me the company name - it even sounds like a fake. I let her give me the information on this fantastic package for almost half an hour and waited until she inevitably asked for my credit card details. I enjoyed her long winded explanation as to how secure my payment would be, and how I could check the authenticity of the company by checking their website - how dumb do they think people are? I left it that they would call me back the next day after I did some research into the company. Angela I'm still waiting on that return phone call you promised me................ This site has just confirmed what I already suspected. Fulfillment International Corporation are fraudsters and timewasters. I'm only sorry I got sucked in to giving them any of my personal details so they could ring me in the first place. Rip-off Report keep up the good work.

2000 Homes Realty condescending, deceiving, racist pigs Queens Village New York
My fiancee and I are a young couple shopping for our first home. We come across an ad in the paper for a foreclosed home in Laurelton, Queens with a description and price that sounds reasonable. We respond to the ad and make an appointment to meet with the real estate agency that posted the ad, 2000 Homes Inc. Unfortunately, my fiancee could not make the appointment so I had my best friend accompany me who happens to be in the real estate business, of which I know nothing. As soon as I enter the office, I get an uneasy vibe. There is paraphernalia that indicates Jewish observance which is fine but the atmosphere reminded me of Ben Affleck's movie, Boiler Room, where a bunch of slimy, wise talking men are conducting fraudulent business. We meet with Lenny Aire, an agent, who right away makes us feel uncomfortable by making inappropriate and irrelevant comments that have nothing to do with why we are there in the first place. When we ask him about the foreclosed home, he makes a million and one excuses why we shouldn't look into it, making us feel as if the ad in the paper was only a way to lure people into their slimy office. When I ask him about other options, he continues to make excuses and find faults in everything we mention. The man didn't even have home listings to show us and gave us some b.s. about that too. Then he makes a reference to the neighborhood, Laurelton. He gets this look of disgust on his face as he has the audacity to say Well, how do you feel about living in a neighborhood that is mostly black? Then proceeds to say, I know you would not want to live in an area where on every corner there is a liquor store. We could not believe what we were hearing! We gave each other a look like Did he just say what I think he said? I was so insulted because I am Hispanic and know that he could easily be making the same reference to me and my people. I wanted to wring this man's neck! What's interesting is that he is Israeli but of dark skin, making him look more Palestinian but I guess they share similar features since they come from the same land. Infuriated at this point, I responded by saying that personally, we prefer to buy a home where the population is more diverse but what difference does it make who lives in the community as long as it is a middle-class, working class community and if he is so concerned with me living among black people would he feel more comfortable with me buying a house among white people who could be trailor park, white trash or even worst KKK members-which in my opinion is one and the same! Of course this set the tone for the rest of our meeting which didn't last much longer. Oh, and to add insult to injury, he had no computer or anything on his desk but some pictures of him and his girlfriend and points to her and says he would not put her in just any neighborhood because she gets scared around certain people easily. Maybe this was an isolated incident but based on my experience with these people, I wouldn't even recommend their services to my worst enemy!!! Pissed Off brooklyn, New YorkU.S.A.

realty properties, realty trade Orlando Florida ripoff attempted Orlando, Florida
There are many RED FLAGS that come up automatically with this company:First they called my elderly parents.  My parents did not contact them.Second they wanted money up front to sell the timeshare.Third when my parents told them they did not have the $1400 to list their property they immediately offered to drop their listing price to $750 and then asked if they had family that they could ask for the money.  They act like debt collectors instead of salesman.Fourth red flag is the BBB.  In 12 months the BBB has over 200 complaints against them and of course the staff at realty properties only complains about the BBB and tries to tell you its a scam organization.  The scam here is that they belong to the Online Business Bureau.  The OBB is widely known for acting like the BBB and they are clearly not the BBB.  The OBB takes money from shady businesses and gives them a good grade, hides complain all in the name of MONEY.Fifth read the reports on this website.  I can only hope you've stopped here to research them before doing business with them.  If not I assume you've come here because you were scammed.

Pittsley Realty ripoff underhanded realty business DeKalb Illinois
Pittsley Realty listed a house in the local newspaper on Monday, June 18th, 2007. I made an appointment to see the house and was informed of their procedure for renting. First, you fill out an application. Once that application is approved, you make an appointment to sign the lease and the rent property is helf for you until that date. The realtor called 24 hours after I applied, on Tuesday June 19th, 2007, to tell me that my application had been approved. I called back shortly thereafter and made an appointment for Monday, June 25th, 2007 at 1pm. On the morning of the 25th, I called to confirm my appointment because I just had a bad feeling about dealing with these people, and sure enough, they rented the property out from under me. Someone came in and signed a lease on Friday, June 22nd. Their excuse for why they rented the house out from under me was that the new girl conveniently put my appointment in the wrong book. My current housing lease will be up in the next couple days. There is simple not enough time to find replacement housing as I thought I -had- a place and stopped looking. Out here, in a college town, small houses are extremely rare and are never on the market long. Now that a lease has been signed out from under me, the rental company can't break that lease. Since their procedure ensures that the only thing you sign is an application, and they have no application fee so no money changes hands, I have no legal recourse against Pittsley Realty.

Valva Realty DON'T BUY FROM VALVA REALTY! Oakland California
I Bought a house some years ago from Valva realty, (listing agent). It turned out it was a condemned house, very well dressed up and appeared to be in great condition. The lack of disclosure was incredible. The house had already rotated off of its' foundation, the termite damage was beyond belief. None of this was disclosed. The reports were written so it was impossible to determine the extent of the damage, and all of the work performed on the house immediately fell apart, so it would appear I was to blame for neglect. (not the case) The house was rigged to flood and there was no rear foundation under the house. I got an attorney and they were forced to pay for the rear foundation, but now the (new?) roof leaks and the termites have returned. All of the people involved, the inspector (Inspectech -David Teare) now doing business as Superior Inpections, The title company, First American Title (JoAnne Garvin) had taken out a flood policy in my name and engaged in insurance fraud to pay for the rear foundation. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY! THEY WILL SELL YOU A FAULT LINE PROPERTY WITHOUT DISCLOSURE AND LEAVE YOU WITHOUT RECOURSE. I filed with the Alameda County District Attorneys' office, they refused to take action. I was informed by my own attorney this was a condemnation, but no record exists. (The brokers - Homes-link, (George Gadsby)and Valva Realty, had taken care of that) I will repeat, DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE COMPANIES! Don't bother with the California Department of Real Estate, they won't help you either! This was serious fraud, by all of the parties involved. They work together, in case you were wondering. When you buy real estate, make sure you have an attorney. Don't agree to any binding arbitration, they won't even if it they are required to by contract. The house still floods, and the termites are still evident, even after treating them. John Oakland, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Maya Realty Maya Realty El Salvador Maya Reatly Goshen Indiana
This review is based on my personal experience with Margi Peak Cowells and Carlos Alfredo Avelar (Co-owners of Maya Realty, Goshen, Indiana) and their closing attorney Samuel Leonardo Estrada Iraheta. If you deal with Margi and the others, this is what you can expect… You can expect Margi to coerce you to make an offer to purchase. She does not tolerate any second thoughts. At best, you can expect Margi to delay returning emails, saying she is too busy and you don’t know what it’s like to run a business. Later, you can expect Margi to not return emails at all. You can expect to make an offer to purchase a home. I made a cash offer. You can expect your Offer to Purchase to include, “Said property to be sold with title free and clear of all encumbrances with full possession to said property available to Buyer on date of closing...” You can expect this will not be the case. I was not sold a Title or Deed. Instead, I was sold a Will. I asked Margi where the Title was. You can expect to be lied to and told you already have a Title. You can expect the closing attorney of their choice to take your money and flee the country. You can expect he will not do what he was paid to do. You can expect to hire lawyers for litigation and have him disbarred. You can expect him to call you to say he is an “honest guy.” You can expect to hire more attorneys for litigation against the seller for failure to convey title. You can expect to hire more lawyers for litigation against Margi and Carlos. You can expect to write letters to the Indiana Attorney General to have their licenses revoked. In short, you can expect your financial life to be ruined. Not to mention the years of pain and suffering they have caused. Margi and Carlos have my number and email if you would like to talk to me about their way of doing business. If they say they don’t have it, you have your answer if you want to trust them.

REALTY PROPERTIES Non performance Internet
Decided to have Realty Properties  sell my 2 weeks of Timeshares at the Ocean Club Marriott in Maui. It is an Ocean Front unit and one of the most desireable locations in the world. They told me that they would get a lot of calls on this unit. I really wanted to sell it so I put my price in lower than what they recommeded by a lot! It has been 7 months and I never received 1 call. They also convinced me to put up both weeks even though they put it in the same ad and they charged me almost double. My idiotic mistake there! When I contacted them they said there had been activity on the listing and would send it to me right away. I never received it even though I called again to request it. The only activity was probably from me checking to see it the ad was still running. THIS COMPANY GAVE ME NOTHING AND I AM VERY DISAPOINTED IN REALTY PROPERTIES AND MYSELF FOR USING THEM

Mencia Realty - Beware, Internet
Mencia Realty is a real estate office who sells real estate for some banks. In the past, I have tried to make several offers on the properties they had listed and was never able to purchase any, shortly after I found out why!It appears as the owner of Mencia Realty - Robert Mencia, buys up all the good properties under several different corporation names. You might be thinking why this is a ripoff - This is an unfair business practice and not allowed thought the banks they work for. The properties must sell to the highest and best offer, but apparently the banks never see any other offer other than the ones his corporations put in. This illegal! If you are the owner of the real estate business, you are supposed to present the seller with all the offers that were submitted on the property. The owner or sellers is the one who makes the decision on who to sell to, normally to the highest and best offer. I am sure Robert Mencia through his Real Estate office, Mencia Realty is blocking all other offers in order for him to make great buys on these REO properties.If you have ever tried to buy an REO property that was listed by Mencia Realty, and did not get the contract, or know more about his information, please post a comment here and share your information.If you are a bank that gives your REO listings to Mencia Realty, take a close look at who the buyers were, and then find out who the owners of those corporations are. I am sure you will find some interesting information. Better yet, try to submit an offer on one of your own properties and see if the offer gets back to you!Robert Mencia and Mencia Realty must be stopped. This is not just unfair to people who are trying to buy REO properties, but also Illegal!

Aquia Realty - Stafford, Virginia
Having leased a home through Aquia Realty, I can say they are one of the most unprofessional management companies I have ever dealt with.  When ending my lease, I was told they would transfer the utilities out of my name.  They transferred the utilities out of my name, but it was two and a half months after my lease ended and only after I received a bill and contacted Aquia Realty to find out what was going on.  Yes, shame on me for being nave and trusting the word of Aquia Realty.  Per my lease terms, I waited the appropriate amount of time and asked for the status of my security deposit with a detailed list of expenses being deducted.  As you have probably guessed from the rating I have provided, I am now out my security deposit with no explanation and on top that, I have not been reimbursed for the utilities I paid after I moved out --- and no one, from the property manager to the owner of the company, will return my call or my emails.

Hostetter Realty Rental Fraud Gap, Pennsylvania
Along with real estate services, Hostetter offers property management services to property owners seeking tenants to lease properties. They do credit checks and manage the leases for the property owner. I took interest in a property listed on their website and payed $60.00 for a credit application which admittedly sounds a bit high for a credit application but I payed anyway. One business day later I was contacted by Hostetter and told that my credit was insufficient and I needed a co-signer, which would be an additional $30 credit application. What Hostetter did not know is that I had been in contact with the property owner and within an hour of their call, I spoke to the property owner, who told me that he already privately rented the property to someone he knew and he couldn't understand why Hostetter would't have told me this. Now I asked Hostetter why they were doing credit applications on properties that were already rented and their response was we didn't know it was rented. So I propmtly requested a refund and they refused saying not our fault, go to the property owner for a refund. Their bad business and fraudulent practice has left me disgusted.

kittyhawk realty inc scam springfield ohio
 Not really sure where to begin.... This place is a scam!! First off , I've called at least 10 times and nobody ever answers. All the houses they have for rent have been listed for at least 3 months. When I finally got a answer Doug was rude and sounded almost unhappy that he answered the phone. I asked if a certain house was still available and was able to schedule a showing . when we arrived the house was completely dirty and looked as if no work has been done on the house at all. With that being said my wife and I were still interested because of the price and location. When asked about the application process we were handed a printout of instructions on how to apply. Doug stated multiple times that we needed to be sure to pay the application fee. I went home and followed the instructions. At no point was I ever prompted to make a payment for the application. I have called several times since then and still no answer. This house has been up for rent for over 180 days! I'm starting to think that this is all a way to receive personal info. I'm not even sure if this is there house to rent. Doug has no intentions of renting any of these properties. I would steer clear of this company at all costs. They are either fishing for info or looking for the right person to just hand over money no questions asked. There address is not real and its impossible to get a hold of them
