Type of a scam Rental
A short term lease agreement was made with this individual to rent a unit located at 1500 Bay Road #1528S Miami Beach, FL 33139 for 7 days beginning 3/9/19-3/16/19. A deposit of $400.00 was made through a google pay app to secure the rental. Signed lease agreements were provided, for which I have attached a copy. On March 5, 2019 I received an email from this individual indicating there was an issue with the unit due to flooding from a previous tenant, therefore the unit would not be available due to a permit issue and repairs that needed to be inspected.
Unfortunately do to the timing, we canceled the rental and requested the deposit back. This individual state via an email that he attempted to return the funds via google app but he received and error. He suggested that we request a chargeback from our bank, for which we did. However, after review by google, a notification was sent to our bank stating the funds were return. For which it hasn’t. Attached is all the documentation concerning the transactions. Because the file is too large to send all documents pertaining to this transactions, I have them for your review and will be glad to share them upon request. I’ve left several messages for Mr. Williams but he has not returned my call. I also sent emails in response to the dispute and they have gone unanswered.
