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.


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,

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

Landlord Revenge

We all need somewhere to live and if you’re a renter finding a place to put your feet up and enjoy the quiet and serenity you’re due after a hard day in the salt mines can be a real crapshoot. You really don’t have much choice as far as your new neighbors or the person you pay your rent to every month. If you’re in a bind maybe these stories will help you out.

What can I do about my landlord’s dog? Read

Revenge Guy,

I’ve lived in my house for about two years. I rent, my next door neighbor owns this house. He has a dog that he lets out at night. This dog wakes me up by barking in the middle of the night, a few feet from my bedroom window. It’s a loud dog, my window is always closed and the dog jars me awake. It happens on average about once a week. Sometimes it happens more often. Last week, it happened two nights in a row. Sometimes it’s multiple times a night. This has been happening since we moved in.

At first, I tried talking to him about it, but he never answered the door when I knocked. So I left a note instead. The first few notes were very nice, saying perhaps he was unaware it was happening, explaining that I work early in the mornings and that it’s happening right outside my window. I asked very nicely if he could please keep this from happening. This became a pattern. His dog would wake me up, I’d go knock on his door and get no answer, so I’d leave a note. I was nice for quite a while, but after months of no change and no response from him, my letters got progressively more assertive and frustrated. I told him about a year ago that if this continued, I would start filing nose complaints.

After months of run around from my lame duck local police force and my inept local animal service agency, I finally got someone to write him a ticket, which he contested and got dropped! He then came over and gloated to us about how his dog isn’t a problem! I was appalled! This guy is clearly violating noise ordinances, and it took me so long to get any enforcement and in end, nothing came off it anyway! It turned into a huge yelling match that ended in my telling him he was an a@$hole.

For whatever reason, things were actually quiet for a few months, but it started happening again a little while ago. We are fed up. We are planning on moving, but we can’t do so immediately, for a few different reasons.

What can I do to piss him of when his dog wakes me up? I want to do something that he will able to connect with when his dog barks at night? Something like every time his dog wakes me up, I do___. I want it to be perfectly within my legal rights but hopefully will annoy him enough to motivate him to shut his dog up at night in order to get me to stop as well.

As for personal info goes, I only know his first name and address. I live in the back unit of a duplex and due to the way it’s set up, I have no line of sight to his property. There is a fence between our houses. If I open my small bedroom window I can see a small corner of his yard, and that’s it. I can’t see the street from my house so the only chance I have to interact with him is when I’m walking to and from my car and I rarely see him then anyways. He’s retired and doesn’t leave the house much. I don’t know his schedule much. I work during daytime, and sleep from 10pm to 6am.

I’ve thought about stink bombs, but I don’t know if that is drastic enough. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Under-sleeped and Pissed

Revenge JokerHi
Under-sleeped and Pissed,

Your life sucks!

There’s nothing worse in the middle of the night than a barking dog, except when that dog is owned by your own inconsiderate landlord/dog-owner that ignores pleas to keep his pet inside at night when most normal people are sleeping so they can go to work and pay their rent to him.

It’s obvious that you’ve done what you can so far and deciding to move to a new place is a step forward, I hope. You do understand that there are two things in life you can’t choose: your family and your neighbors, so it’s always a crap-shoot.

By wanting to inconvenience the dog owner with something you do when the dog is out and barking, however righteous, isn’t a real solution. The guy is up, awake, letting his dog out. What could bother him at that time? Maybe at that time he’s already in his sound-insulated shitter not caring anything about the world other than whatever he ate earlier comes out without taking his colon with it.

BUT if the dog started getting into something that was then dragged into his home, or made the dog have the runs or something, then the dog being out and about without being watched just might change.

And why should YOU do something to get his attention when it’s the dog and his owner that is doing all this crap to wake you up and piss you off anyways?

Leave it all to the dog.

I think it’s time to go second-hand clothes shopping and clothing dye shopping too.

Buy some second-hand cheap socks, underwear, t-shirts, pants… and some red dye and save the blood from your steaks.

When the dog is let out, and shit-head owner is in his house, walk out and throw some of what you bought over the fence near the dog. Prepare the clothing by tearing it up, adding the red dye and at the time needed, sprinkling it with the saved blood, maybe even tuck a piece of real meat or cheese into it to make it more appetizing too.

Let him drag these clothes into his house a few nights in a row and I’m sure the dog won’t be out so much anymore.

And asshole landlord/dog-owner should have his alert level raised for a while too. Can you say confused?
