Botched Paint Job

Posted on Jul 09, 2019 at 02:53 PM

Lelia Shepard says: I purchased a buick verano that had a bad paint job. The gmc dealership agreed that the model paint was botched and offered to repaint the vehicle. Two years later the same exact issue is happening with the vehicle so they in fact did not eliminate the problem. Now I have been told that they will not repaint the vehicle but will give me $1000 towards a nee paint job. A paint job that costs $4000 to complete. I want them to paint my vehicle properly so that the paint lasts the amount of time a paint job is supposed to last. Will you please help me!

Help me Howard

Posted on Jun 06, 2019 at 06:18 AM

Adrian Sinclair says: Hello Mr Howard , my name is Adrian Sinclair . I live in Broward County Fl . My car was recently broke down in my townhouse complex , I was in the process of fixing the radiator due to a leak . It was stationary for about a week . One day I came home from a long day at work to my car being gone . I called the local PD to report it stolen . They police informed me that my car was towed due to the homeowners association penalizing me for the leak on the asphalt . The homeowners association did not inform me or give any warning of this . They said they put a sticker/notice on my car but that is a lie because I would check my car everyday, they also told me I could not bring my vehicle back to the premises . Long story short I ended having to go to the tow yard and pay to get it out and also having to junk it because I was not able to return it to my residence. When I checked the tow yard paperwork the reason for it being towed said “illegally parked” instead of what the homeowners association told me. My car was illegally taken from me with no correspondence or warning . Can you help me please , this has put me in a financial rut not being able yo make it to work

I have a 2002 honda Accord that was running hot I brought the car to this establishment . Once my car was looked at I was told the water pump and Timing belt will need to be replaced and recommended a oil change. This total came out to be 734.02 Extremely high they charge me 450 in labor . They called me the next day to say my car was ready . Hours later after receiving the vehicle back the car would not start and was still running hot I immediately called the owner Glen To start a complaint he then advised to bring the car back 1 hour till closing. Once I brought the car back as it was running hot ...they put the car on the machine and said i needed spark plugs which means the car was not checked entirely before they gave back to me . they told me to take the car back home running hot so i did. True is I never made it home and had to get my car towed because me and my 3 year old daughter got stuck at a stop light. Now days later after this chaos My car is still running hot and I have 3 misfires I took it to advance auto parts which recommended that the timing belt should be looked a

Free kill at sovereign hospitals

Posted on Mar 06, 2018 at 01:27 PM

Martha Wright says: Hello, did you know there are hospitals such as Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Fl that are sovereign hospitals? This means if the hospital mangle or kill you there is a cash cap set at $250,000, which then means the lawyers are only allowed to take 25% of the cap and forensic experts needed $5,000-10,000. So attorneys turn down the case which then means they do not make enough money.

Please read on for my current letters to the Governor of Florida.

DOR/intercepted money

Jason Eutsey says: I really need your help. I previously had a child support order in this evil county of Broward. My wife and I are married and we agreed to close out the child support order in 2010 by going to the child support office located at 1900 Commercial Blvd. I got hurt on my job in 2017 and had a workman's comp claim. I was awardes $5,000 but I only received $2,500 because the Department of Revenue said that child support has the other amount. My wife and I have been jumping through hoops and circles to find our money. Apparently Brenda Foreman and the Broward County Clerk of Courts are still charging me for a child support order that was closed out 8 years ago.

Help!

Posted on Feb 27, 2018 at 12:10 PM

Melissa Graham says: Asking for help
We purchased a vehicle from a used car dealership in Fort Lauderdale. They completed all of the financial paper work on the computer and had my husband electronically sign stating that the sales price was 15500. After getting home and reviewing the documents that were sent to me via email I immediately cancelled the financing. The purchase price on all documents was 16999. I contacted the sales person and he would not return my calls, only responded via text. Confirmed via text that the wrong sales price was on the documents and that we were free to obtain our own financing. At this point we were furious. My hisband drove the car back to the dealership the next day and said he wanted to cancel the entire transaction. They would not give our full deposit back of 3700. They kept 1600 and said it was a “restocking fee”. I have contacted the district attorney and will be contacting the Better Bsiness Bureaus. And other advise will help. I will not stop until we have recovered our deposit and this is known to the public.

The maintenance guy head here at least 7 times to fix the bed within the first 6 months. I have been back and forth with the company. Before the bed was one year old they came and put zip ties and a bungee cord on it to keep it from separating. Only for it to do it again. I have had several problems with this bed only for them to tell me that my bed is the only one that has done that and I told it must be defective. I called again and now they want to charge me for a service call and it's not my fault that the bed that is only slept in is defective. I paid 4000.00 for this bed and I have not had one good night's sleep in it and the problems have been too numerous to tell u now. I'm an sick out of my mind about it because I thought this would be helpful to me concerning my health. Please help me with this matter

Vicky says: After hurricane Irma, I called FPL to let them know that my electric wire is detached from the pole and the wires are hanging low in my driveway and supported by tree branches. I told them that I was concerned no only about the possibility of the wire falling out of the tree and being accessible to my 9 year old son but also the risk of fire to my home.

They informed me that since I still had power to my house, it was not an emergent situation and they would put in a work order.

The second time I reported the wire, the customer service person that called me for the followup insisted that it could not be the electric wire becaue I still have power to my home and I was mistaken. I described the wire as a black and silver twisted wire that traced to my circuit breaker. To her hesitation, she agreed to follow up.

So far I spoke to the customer service agents on: 9/18, 11/9, 12/13 and I still do not have my resolution.

Where can I go from here?

Cg Cosmetics (stole my money)

Devin Colston says: Hi, I've made several payments to Cg Cosmetics in coral gables, fl for a tummy tuck. Every single time it was time to make a payment prior to surgery, they were happy and eager to take my money very quickly... In the written agreement, it states that you are able to receive a refund at anytime but they have to take 1,000 off due to any inconvenience... I had to cancel for medical purposes being that I would not wake up if I were to undergo surgery... I asked for a refund and have been given the run around with tons of excuses ever since.. I even had my friend who just finished law school write them a letter and still no refund... I gave these people a total of 5,500 and I need my money bk like last year!!!

Royal Caribbean not so royal treatment

Posted on Nov 14, 2017 at 05:15 AM

Precious Slater says: I really need some help. A friend and I traveled with Royal Caribbean for our birthdays and were treated poorly. I went to their guest services and was told I could not be helped with my complaints until I was off the boat. So I was supposed to be stuck on the boat without a care for the poor service we received. So I called the corporate and they took my complaint and told me that someone on the boat was able to assist me; she would email them to do so. When I went back awhile later to check if they received it, they told me they didn’t have an email and step to the side so they could help their other customers. They didn’t not want to help and because I complained we were treated like criminals. On top of that, my card has been charged for things I never purchased on the boat. They said they were just pending charges and would not post. Now they have posted to my account and it’s over $1500 in additional charges that do not have anything to do with me or the activities I did onboard. They have been telling me they don’t know what they are charging me for and that they can’t see it.

HOME DEPOT DECEPTION

Posted on Nov 07, 2017 at 05:08 PM

ERIC LANFAIR says: We hired Home Depot Services to install a new roof on or home in November 2016. Instead of Home Depot performing the work, they hired a contractor and began the roof in Jan 2017. The work is a disaster. They tore the siding off the front of the home, they left a small hole in the corner of the roof where bats entered into the attic and resided for months. Once we noticed the bats, the attic had feces all over the whole attic. Home Depot admits to these errors and says they will make it right. They claim their contractor will be paying for the damages. It has now been over 9 months and we have not received anything or gotten anything fixed. We paid to have the bats removed with the agreement that they are paying back the money. The costs for the other items is ALOT so we do not have money to pay for that beforehand. Howard: Please help? Again, Home Depot admits responsibility, we now need to receive the money for the work to be completed and get the money back for the bat removal which we already paid. Any help will be appreciated. I hope no other persons hire Home De

After Irma the tree is damaging my home and again one neighbor says no. It is so costly to trim back every year 2500 or more so we wanted to get it taken down. Legally we can not we need them to sign off. Tree experts say it cant handle another storm and will come down next time and take away part of my hose and all of theirs. The cost is 7.500-10,000 I have to get a loan to get it taken down and am not asking them to pay at all we need is for them to sign. What can we do ? Do we have to lose or home ?

My family has lived in our home in Miramar for 13 years. This past June our H.O.A. implemented some parking regulations. We have 4 vehicles in our home that have always been parked in the driveway. This morning however one of my vehicles was towed right out of MY driveway. When I spoke to the HOA they stated my vehicle was parked on the sidewalk (which it was not) and the tow was valid. I explained to them that it was not parked on the sidewalk and they replied that the vehicle was blocking the sidewalk which is against Florida law. I have pictures of other cars parked exactly the same way that were not taken. Please help me I feel like I'm being ripped off!!

Can a company drop your medical insurance on midnight of your last day even though yo pay through the end of the pay period? I was told by the Isle Casino that just because I pay for it through the end of the pay period that doesn't mean I am covered through that time. Also my Colonial Insurance premiums were taken out of my August checks but never sent in. I had to pay Colonial again to keep insurance. Isle admitted fault but I can't get any more responses as to when they will send it in or reimburse me.

Dear Mr Howard,
My father died in 2012. He died without a will and there was a bank account with $6000 in it. My mother hired a lawyer in 2013 to handle the probate to gain access to those funds. we paid the lawyer in full for services. My father had no outstanding debt or creditors he owed. Also no other family members going after money in account. It has been over five years and we are constantly being told by lawyer that it is the judge that is rescheduling court dates or just not signing paperwork. The lawyer sometimes does not respond to or calls or texts for months. He does not give updates. under Threat of going to the Florida Bar he started to respond to texts, only to say he is still waiting on judge. My mother and i feel this lawyer is not doing his d diligence. My mothers church recently (2016) had to go to probate court to fight over obtaining church from surviving pastor relatives. The whole process for them was opened and closed in 6 months. The church itself was with over 80,000. In this case it opened and closed quickly. I only have a case number 2013-02827-cp-02

The photo looks like it was on red, I remember that it was blinking or not working most of Doral traffic lights. Next day, Sept 11, 2017the City installed generators in the main intersections including the one I had the ticket, which it was 107 Ave NW 41 Street.
How can I fight this ticket? I was going to check my elder mother a few blocks away.

I payed $495 for an inspection on a Mercedes total cost $11400. After getting the report the rep Jeff said he can sell me another car becase the car was not good. And they removed it off the site for me, becase it`s considered sold. I told him I seen the same car for sale online for sale in Georgia, with the same VIN.
he denied it and said I need to speak to the manager. I did with no response. Please contact me for more information. I`m limited with this complaint. I need my money back.


I contacted the car dealer in Georgia 9/23/2017 for the VIN NO and it`s the EXACT CAR. I spoke to the manager "Max" of the Georgia car lot 9/25/2017 and told him that I`m interested in bying the car, and I needed an inspection first to know what I`m getting becase I`m in Florida. He recommended Pep Boys close to him, they didn't take payments over the phone. He then referred 5 Brothers Ato motive and they took the payment. Max took the car to 5 Brothers for the inspection. The $80 receipt and inspection report was sent to me in less than 3 hrs. The report was for the same car with minor proble

On May 28th 2016 I purchased a RV. Terrible situation! I had not actually test driven the vehicle two weeks prior as they could not find the key. So we were allowed to stay in the vehicle and then test drive with the verbal stipulation that the loan would not be processed if we were not happy and not taking delivery of the vehicle. At the end of our stay we found several issues that needed to be corrected and said do not process the loan until the items are corrected. The loan was processed anyway! After miss deadlines for the repairs and more issues arose like water leaking into the unit into different places and a broken air conditioning we decided did not want the RV
Lazydays position is they will let me out of the deal but keep of $15,000.00 of my money because I devalued the unit by staying in it which they told me I should do.
I just want my money back!

Hello Howard. I am a Florida Resident living in broward county. I just recently got notified that my license has been suspended for quite some time now due to lack of insurance on my car. Back in June 2016, I financed my 2013 VW through a leasing company called Lobel Financial. I was misled in thinking I would be paying an extra 80-100 dollars a month, added to my car payment, to cover insurance for my car. Come to realize now, I was paying all that extra money now to insure my car but not myself. In the state of FL, minimum coverage of car insurance must include property damage and PIP insurance.
As soon as I found out about my license status, I decided to shop around for an insurance with full coverage. However, I've been denied every single insurance because of past two car accidents, not at fault, in my record.
I am left now with no license, no car insurance, and a car parked outside my house, to which I'm still making payments, but am unable to drive in it. I have a 9 year old son which I have to take and pick up from school every day and I'm currently 4 months pregnant. Ple

I have lived here for 4 years now. I have paid my lease on time every month every year. No complaints about me here. I received a letter on my door, as I do every October that it is time to renew lease. I went office and after a 100.00 increase put on my lease, I said yes the next day. I signed lease on November 1st, 2016 for January-December 2017. Now the new owners of property told manager to tell me they will not honor lease. They are expanding and want to make my apartment 2 br to 3 br. They told me they would try to extend 7 month lease, around my new apartment. It is now December, everyday they tell me something difficult but now it seems either an upstairs unit or if they and me a downstairs it has very stained and dirty carpets, and they won't replace because that unit is
going to be demoed in 6 months or so. I have a 22 years old son in UCF and comes home often, so I need help.

For 7 weeks, I have been ignored about this, but its time to make this public. There have been security branches to their website, which is a huge problem since they maintain Personally Identifiable Information about users such as: names, phone numbers, emails addresses, and even physical house addresses. PCH knows about this and they have an obligation to their users to disclose the branch, but PCH is not doing anything about it after repeated phone calls I made to them. I received an email yesterday from Chris Irving from Consumer and Legal Affairs at PCH. I replied with a very detailed description about what is happening, and I still have not received a response from him. This is deliberate negligence when millions of people’s Personally Identifiable Information is at risk and not being told about it.

I have been having problems with my association in Tamarac- TMG. As I am having a hard time with my neighbor who is treating me to poison my animals. I report it to the management company who is not willing to do anything about it. I was wondering what legal action I can take as I am scared to lose my animals.

Thomas Horchler says: Please help me Howard. I am a disabled male who checked into Ricards Hotel today. All my rights and laws protecting me under the Federal ADA act were seriously violated. I know my rights and laws protecting me and my service animal which is 100% non agressive dog and people friendly. But due to lack of education and ignorance, I was totally banished and stressed. First, they said my breed could not be a service animal due to it being a pit bull then after accepting all our money they were asking for proof or paperwork which is illegal and unethical. They clearly don't know the laws regarding service animals and forced to go threw isolation and stressed causing more pain and anxiety. My rights were clearly violated and they had no concern. I need help educating the staff and maybe a lawsuit making staff realize the severity of the lack of compassion and most of all the laws protecting me. Please help me Howard in bringing awareness to ignorance and how serious the situation was making me more ill and feeling of isolation and indifference. Please call me.

Issue about payments

Posted on Nov 15, 2016 at 10:04 PM

Zilpa Lopez says: I am writing in regards of my mother. Her name is Luisa Medina. She is a 66 years old lady and have been living in South Florida since 1999. Currently, she owns a condominium in North Miami. The company that manages the condominium is Unlimited Management Property. Recently she called the office to get a permit and was notified that she had a pending balance. The issue with this is that the pending balance is from 2013 and 2015. She was never notified that she had this balance and she found out about it because she needed a car permit from the office. When she tried to clear things up with Unlimited Management Property, they responded to her that it is not their responsibility to let her know about any pending balances. This happened on November 7th, 2016. When I looked into her bank statements it shows that the company never cashed some checks. One from 2013 and three from 2015. The problem is that she has been talking to neighbours and it looks like she is not the only one with this issue. It looks that Unlimited Management company does not notified their clients about any missing payments.

Kim Washington says: Dear Help Me Howard,
On Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at approximately 11:30 AM I approached the complex key gate entry and scanned my key card. The metal inside gate began to open followed by the rising of the red and white pole. I began my entry and was about half way through the complex entrance when the metal inside gate began to close while my truck was making entrance. I stopped and began to slowly reverse only to realized that the red and white pole had come down. My truck was trapped between the metal gate and the pole. The metal gate began to scratch the front on my truck and was just about to get out of the truck to stop the gate from doing further damage when another resident saw me in distress and quickly scanned his card. The gate began to open again and I quickly moved my truck to a safe distant from the metal gate.
I immediately went to the property manager’s office to report the incident. She came out and took photos and I told her about the incident. She told me that perhaps I move to slowly through the gate and I responded that I have lived here six years.

Gladys Romero says: Good evening Mr. Howard,
I am writing to advise you of my neighbour, Cintia A. because she is an independent single woman and mother of two college age children. She is a community activist here in Doral and is currently being sued for helping a Facebook person with posting dealing with financial audit question. Ms Amstalden has several Facebook sites for sharing concerns about the city of Doral and HOA issues. She is also a cat activist. She is also representing herself with this lawsuit. She is an inspirational and bright unselfish and self sacrificing woman. I think the community would benefit about Cintia's story and struggles as our community is facing a crisis with HOA and Condo fraud. This case needs media exposure, we all could learn from the story of this remarkable person who stands up for her rights, principles and will defend herself in court on the 29th of this month. Truly inspirational.

Thank you,
Gladys Romero

Christopher chuy says: I am living in a duplex that had electricity and plumbing problems that the landlord doesn't want to fix. My son can't even shower in the home because of these issues and the landlord is still requesting us to pay rent and has started the early stages of eviction process and I am looking for help. Police won't do anything because it is a civil matter and I can't find a lawyer to help. Is there anything you can do?

Sally Anne Brackett says: Dear Help me Howard,
My two daughters bought a house together a year ago from a foreign national. They were informed that this required a Firpta transaction by their realtor. She recommended a title company that she worked with regularly. The title company withheld the funds for the sellers IRS responsibilities at closing and the girls heard nothing more until recently they got a letter from the IRS stating that they owed $8000 dollars in late fees and penalties. It appears the title company held onto his clients money for 6 months before he finally sent it with his clients tax return resulting in my poor daughters being responsible for all the penalties on a capital gains liability they had nothing to do with.
The title agent has admitted to sending the payment late but refuses to take responsibility, an appeal was made by my daughters to the IRS which was denied.
Are they really responsible for someone else's negligence ? They have no way to come up with this kind of money, can you please advise, thank you.

isabel says: Ever since the water company removed a tree from the front of our property, the water bill has been significantly high. When we asked the water company to look into it they told us it was our consumption and we have to pay the water or it will be cut off. Last month, the pipes burst in the middle of the night and when my community dug up the pipe they confirmed that the pipes were not repaired properly by the water company, therefore causing the pipes to burst. The water company is charging us $3000 and demanding us to pay the bill or they will cut off or water. We have paperwork and photos. Help me Howard.

Lost money from account need help

Posted on Oct 19, 2016 at 03:25 AM

Richard graham says: I bank with a credit union and have been a member since 2011. I lost my ATM card and it was used at ATM machine. How id pin number was used, I have no clue nobody not even family members know my pin. I was treated like I was the thief of course I immediately reported all well within 2 days to bank. They froze my account for 10 business days while investigating the fraud only to deny me. Then they told me I could report to police after the denial plus lack of access to my account for those 10 business days. Mind you. The thief took all money out of account plus full amount of over draft. I am out all not right. The denial was soley based on their belief that could not have been taken unless my pin was given which again is only their assumption and not true. The ATM machine used apparently did not have camera. Please help. I almost became homeless over.
