Tricked Out of Future Payments by Ex-Landlord

Dear Revenge GuyDear Revenge Guy,
I am disabled and a woman evicted me and I was awarded $2305.00.

This woman said she could only pay me $100.00 a month the first payment was $200.00 and I have a receipt for that $200.00 and she has only that receipt in the form of my signing her check.

I waited for 2 months to pass and then I asked her why she stopped paying me. She said we should go to court and signed a couple of papers to ensure she would pay me $100.00 a month.

I am not able to walk and stand for long periods of time and I was very exhausted from all this going from room to room and different buildings. She took advantage of my disability and shoved some papers at me that she said was to make sure she has to pay me $100.00 a month and she covered the last paper so I could not see what I was signing.

It came to my attention that I had signed a “satisfaction”, and now the court will not open my case again because I signed a satisfaction.

So after all of this happening she filed a restraining order against me as a ploy to keep me from communicating with her at all. I was just wondering if there is any way for me to get what the judge said she must pay me $2105.00???
Thank you

The Revenge GuyHi,
Yes, you were scammed by someone with every intention of ripping you off.

I hope that you’ve discussed your next moves with a lawyer because that seems prudent. You were tricked and taken advantage of not once but twice by this woman. The court will only look at the paperwork in front of it but a lawyer may have another thing to say about your case which now seems to border on fraud.

One thing that I do suggest is make a phone call to the women (if the restraining order has ended) and say the following;

Hi (name),
I don’t hold any grudges and only want you to know that even though I was at first very hurt I now understand that I need to look after myself in greater detail.
I have had time to think about what happened and understand why you tricked me into signing the papers settling the issue of payment.
I hope that we can both put this behind us and move on with our lives, and that I won’t pursue what happened any longer.
Good bye.

You will want to change what is said and how you say it but the main point here is to get her to admit, even in a small way, that she did trick you into signing the paperwork that ended her payments to you.

Don’t get angry with her, try to be calm and make her feel safe in that you aren’t going to drag these recent events out any longer. Such feeling of security may lower her guard and she says something incriminating.

Of course, you will want to record the conversation and hope that any admission she makes will allow your lawyer to take her to court again.

I hope this helps,
RG
