Renters Left Crap Behind, What Do I Do?

Hi Revenge Guy,
My former renters were making big deals of minor issues and would not talk to me personally. They use text like its the most convenient way to communicate. I had to spend hours explaining things that I could have done in 5-10 minutes by talking about it. I decided not to renew their lease as they have also broken several appliances in the house.

Anyway, as I was cleaning their room, I found panties and pair of shoes.

Is it legal to send the panty to their work place (with a note and their names on it :) since I do not have their new address? I live in California.

Thanks.

Hi L,
By all means, send the panties and shoes to their last known address you have.

In as clear a box you can find.

Be sure to include instructions about how to reimburse you for sending them their personal items and the broken appliances.

Best Wishes, The Revenge Guy

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

Upstairs Neighbors Smell Like Booze and Pot

Dear Revenge GuyDear Revenge Guy,
I need help with noisy neighbors. I have lived in a basement apartment for 6 years and have had no complaints until 3 weeks ago where 2 young men moved in above me and they make alot of loud noise, music partying banging stomping and they do drugs because the hallway smells like alcohol and pot.
They make all kinds of noise from 12 am to 7 am and I first spoke to the guy nicely and had a very nice conversation which this lasted a week until the whole thing started again and now it is much.
I have complained to my landlord who knows very much what is happening since the landlord lives right above them and has admitted to me they hear and smell everything and they say they have spoken to them numerous times. I want to move but can’t afford to and I don’t want a violent confrontation with these guys as i am single female Please advise what i should do?
When i told my landlord i am considering moving they were upset and told me they didnt want me to move and i told them i cannot live like this for i do have a epileptic condition which requires i get proper sleep.

The Revenge GuyDear Di,
I find it very hard to understand why your landlords would let all of this happen right underneath them, and above you. It’s disgusting, that’s what it is.
Tell your landlords that you will start calling the police for the illegal activities and well as your local housing authority about the situation.
You have every reason to break your lease but you may also have other violations against your privacy that a lawyer can tell you about.
And use the video feature of your cell phone and record all the noise and such that happens including any future confrontations with these bums upstairs. No matter what happens you deserve to not only feel safe but to be safe.

Harassing Apartment Managers

Hello RG,
Thank you for providing your Revenge Guy website. I need to get back at my apartment managers. They have been the worst, harassing and lying to me for over a year. They have made my life miserable. I complained to their company two times, to no avail. They keep getting away with everything.

We are moving soon, and would like to become a thorn in their side. Any safe, legal, fun annoyances, harassment, things that are a pain in the butt-ideas would be most helpful.

I’ve heard put a dead (large) fish in the heaters duct when we leave, and turn the heat on.. lard and hair slowly into the drains… crazy gluing things..

I do have a bit of information on them,, the wife receives 70% of the husbands pay because he owes child support in other states. His license was suspended for non payment of child support fees.

The owners of the company must know something if they agreed to pay her the 70%, if they were to make that possible.

Please Revenge Guy, I need help ASAP. Ive done some reading online, but havent found anything worth planning yet.
Please advise.
Thank You!

Hi J,
You are going about your revenge thoughts the wrong way. Everything you have suggested will result in problems for the next tenants and not the current managers. Depending, of course, how fast ‘the fat fries’ versus the turn around time on the next renter moving in.

What you need is immediate enjoyment, something that will happen while you’re still there. Take a newspaper ad out, pay cash, do it in person, and have the ad say something along the lines of first two months free rent, something like that.
Or print out something to post around town about cheap furniture for sale, with their phone number on it. Stuff like that.

Keep them busy with people that will be pissed at them. Free rent, cheap furniture…. even cleaners needed for the building…. hehehe… I’m sure you see how much fun you can have with this.
Best wishes,
The Revenge Guy
