I admit it, I screwed up. I took a Cashiers Check to the Managers in the name of the Park. They told me that the owner (who lives in Reno and she supposedly was on the phone with) told them to have me get a Cashiers check in their name, to pay them for their salaries and to pay the light bill (which he normally covers, but had not sent a check yet.) This would help everyone out, the park owner - because he forgot to send the check, the managers - because their electricity was going to be turned off and they needed their pay, and me - because I had guys moving in that day. I, (being a newbie, and honest person, and believing that after 2 weeks of dealing and talking to these people, that they to were honest), ran to the bank to get a new Cashiers Check in the managers name. I was excited to have deal #3 nearly under my belt and I wanted to do what the owner and manager wanted, because this park is full of great buys, and I had hoped to do many deals there. Later I found out the Park Owner did not send the money for their salaries and the electricty, because he was hoping they would quit and move out. They were fired the next day.
I know I screwed up, I learned many valuble lessons from this deal gon sour. Please don’t beat on me to hard, I know I asked for this mess by being honest and trusting people. That is just the type of guy my mamma raised. From now on, I will only operate by the book and I will protect myself leagally at all times. TRUST NO ONE!!
