Complaint / review text:
After being shown a house I was told was available for rent, agent Linda Bobski took two checks from me, one for $70 to cover the application fee, and one for $1195 for a security deposit on this house that was supposedly for rent.
Several days later, she called to tell me that the house was no longer for rent. At this point I asked her to mail my checks back to me since she had misrepresented the property, and she said she had already ran my credit check, so she would not give my $70 check back. I then told her this was pretty shady considering I gave her that check in good faith, assuming the house was actually for rent. After talking to her "boss" Deb Frohling, she told me she would mail both checks back to me, but that I was being unreasonable and that this was not her fault. Well, that was two weeks ago, and I still have not received my checks.
At this point, I feel the need to put a "stop payment" on both these checks, which will cost me $60. Not to mention the fact that she did a "hard" credit check, which hurts my credit score, even though the property was never actually available for rent.
Advantage Homes is shady!!! Do NOT do business with them!!!
