Not returning a refund given on non valid rental property
My Complaint: Mr. Ed Spann after several phone contacts, I agreed to meet you at a specified car dealer location on 95th and Cicero and I gave you a $300 deposit money order for 14500 Union Riverdale, Illinois on 2/19/2015. On February 23, 2015 you instructed me to take a $2400(earnest money ) cashier’s check to 155 N Wacker Dr. Chicago. Il suite 4250. You asked that I make payable to Century21 c/o Ed Spann, Anthony Warren and Associates. All of that could NOT put put, on cashiers check so i hand wrote Anthony Warren and Ed Spann including the property address on memo line. My understanding of this money will be going toward renting 14500 Union Riverdale. Illinois. 1 month rent $900 and $1800 would be my 2mo security deposit. My expected move in date at the time of money exchange would be March 15. 2015 and after a few contacts verbal and text message March 31, 2015 was agreed as a good move date. After driving by
14500 Union several times and realizing no work has been done on the house. I then called Mr Spann. We discussed that my cashiers check has been cashed by Century 21 on Feb 24.2015. On several occasions inquiries have been made regarding my move in walk threw. No date was given and I was constantly informed that someone would be contacting me shortly. Around the last week in March I contacted Realtor for 14500 Union and was told that contract that was on unit had been cancelled on march 20th. Lock box had been broken and keys removed from box.
I then made a texted contact for ALL my monies toward the property at 14500 Union be returned immediately. I have been told that it would take 7 days to return my rent and security deposit. Then i get text that lawyer is out of town and would be contacting me early week. That was week before Easter. Then on April 3,2015 I was informed that it would take an additional 7-15 days to investigate my contract to get a reply about the return of my rent and security deposit. I was never trying to buy a home I was looking to rent.
As of this day i have been communicating with firstname.lastname@example.org about my refund. My family and I are still homeless and cant seem to get the help we need. Can someone please help?
My Demand: All money back with out of pocket extra expenses, storage $155mo truck rentals and gas, tolls. traveling expense, pain and suffering
