Consumer Complaint: We lived in an apartment complex and signed a year lease with them on XX/XX/XXXX. We paid on time and gave a XXXX $ security deposit. We moved out before the end date of midnight XX/XX/XXXX, left the apartment empty with no damages, and paid our final dues. SIX MONTHS LATER my friend gets a call from a collection agency asking for me. I call the collections company to see why they are bothering my friend and they say i owe them money and i need to pay right now or that they’re going to send it to collections and continue to call me and my friend until i pay ( threat ). I didn’t receive any letter any call and suddenly it ends up in collections for something i already paid.ON TOP of all of that they kept our security deposit and are still trying to get more money out of us.
