So i had a fun day...

Today is move in day on campus for me. In May i signed a lease for an apartment, and today when I get there its the WRONG apartment. The agent showed us one apartment and gave us another. It turns out that the person that showed it to us is actually a con-artist (she had used the same trick for at least 4 other people that I'd seen, and all kinds of other things) and that the realtor is pressing charges against that agent.

The apartment we did get is smaller, has a bunch of problems, and is generally not nearly as nice as the one we were shown. Its NOT the policy of the realtor to show "model apartments" (as in they show you one and give u a similar one). After waiting in line at their office for 3 hours, they cut our rent by 7.2% and credited us for some days because the condition wasnt good enough to live in ($100). Still, if i didnt have 4 roommates that each had their own opinion, i'd just tell them to break the lease or I'm calling a lawyer.

I am VERY mad right now. and extremely tired from moving stuff. and it rained so i couldnt get a ride in...

Keep us informed one whether or not they fix the stuff properly for you. And start documenting EVERYTHING if you need to take legal action later in the semester. Pics and a complete record of your communications.

actually its a her (she was actually pretty hott, i guess that helps)

i called her a con artist but by that i mean that she misled lots of other people (thats my definition of con-artist). some of them were misled just like we were (showed one apartment, gave another), some in other ways regarding rent etc.
Its not really to do with the school although the schools tenant union might be able to help out. I've heard the law students also provide free legal consultation. i dont know how much we're gonna fight it tho, or how much we can fight it. for now we agreed on a different lease so i suppose its fine. im still pissed.

moral of this story: never trust a woman

they fired her already but what i want to know is when did they find out about all this? because if they had known earlier it would have been nice not to tell your tenants about this on MOVE IN DAY. if they are pressing charges they must have known for a while. the realtor had us write out a statement about this saying "blah blah blah we got conned blah blah blah".

its obvious that they aint gonna get no money out of her, shes a broke 20 year old student.
now im just ranting. sry

Even if they did know. They don't have much liability for it. They don't know who she conned. I'm sure her pay was based on what she sold/rented. IDK if they would have any other idea.

Seems like they would make her pay for some of it if it was her fault. Oh well...

You could... You signed a lease for a different apartment, legally they cannot change the terms of the lease after you sign it... unless of course the address listed on the lease matches the hole they put you in... Then it's your responsibility because you should have read it more thoroughly...

I think it might be time to stalk her for a little while... become friends with her friends, introduce your friends to her friends... then they get introduced to her... Then your friends are over one night for a party or something... They give her an upper decker and fill her shampoo bottle with Nair...

Bald chicks can be hot, but there is nothing... NOTHING that scares a chick more than waking up bald one day...

Penthousing the throne... that's a good one... My best was in high school... A group of about 10 of us crashed a party of a really hot, superb!tch, snob chick... She hated us, we hated her... Needless to say her parents were gone for a week and the party was the first day they were gone... 4 of us crushed it in the master bath... I was the last and there was no tp... So I carefully used the his/her hand towels, folding them back into their original postion ever so gently... brown side to the wall...

We only lasted an hour before getting kicked out... my bud with the vomit at will technique drank a bunch of V8 and painted the white carpet in the living room...

We were the guerilla party terrorists of our high school...

My advice is find this broad and do her. That will make up for the conning.
