Go gett’em! Scamming tenants deserve to be ‘shut down’. - Posted by SusanL.–FL

I like the idea of you ‘joining forces’ with the car dealership. Hopefully, you guys can come up with a gameplan.
After we evicted one tenant, we noticed that there was a (rental) air conditioner (window unit) left behind. (There was a sticker on the side of the unit with the vendor’s name/address.) I sent a letter warning the vendor that the tenant had been evicted…just on the chance that she might show up at his place again to try to rent something else.
As community-minded citizens, I think it is a good idea to try to help one another (other vendors, and the like) if we are able. As the old saying goes, one hand washes the other.
We had one other instance. After the eviction, Kenny went over to the house to check things out when who shows up but the owner of the local ‘Rent All’ type of store! It turned out that our tenants had rented just about EVERYTHING (wash/dryer, TV set; you name it, they had it! Living like little kings…
Even a bottled water distributor showed up to recoup his equipment! I guess plain 'ole tap water wasn’t good enuf for these guys…
Enjoy your posts! Hope things settle down for you b/4 the holidays.
