|What I found odd was the use of a private company e-mail address (i.e. conradindustries.com) being used in personal/private business that is unrelated to Conrad Industries. Most companies frown upon this. The contact information (including e-mail address) is listed on the original papers Shane Alfred and Lonny Gaudet gave to residents when they took over the property.|
Around the middle of December 2011 I had to make a payment. I made the payment at Shane Alfred’s HR office at Conrad Industries. Mr. Alfred made a comment of, “What are your intentions?” I asked him to clarify. He made this statement out of the blue. He then asked, “What are your intentions with your trailer?” I asked him to be more specific. He finally said what was on his mind. He made an inaccurate statement that my trailer was the worst looking one in the trailer park. This is a completely inaccurate statement. The fact of the matter is my mobile home does not look as nice as the outside of his overpriced rental trailers which he charges $650/month for the rental of the trailer and very small lot space.
I stated to Mr. Alfred that when I would receive my income tax I would be doing work on my trailer. He replied, “You have three months.” I had assumed three months from around income tax time. After all, if you are giving someone three months to do work and they have stated they will not have any money to do such work until two months later, then you are really not giving them three months.
On February 28, 2012 I received a certified letter (view letter) with the return address of A&G Rentals but the name of “Creative Properties.” In the envelope (view envelope) was a letter from A&G Rentals that stated because of the condition of my trailer that I had six months to vacate the property.
I noticed that the letter was very unprofessionally typed. First was the mixing of company names. The envelope stated Creative Properties but with the address of A&G Rentals. The letterhead as well as the closing salutation was A&G Rentals. Next was a lack of a date. There was no date anywhere on the letter indicating the date that it was typed. Next was referring to me as “Tenant” instead of a more professional tone of “Mr. Hillebran.” Finally, the letter was not signed. The closing salutation was simply typed as “A&G Rentals, LLC” with the listing of the principals of the LLC: Shane Alfred and Lonny Gaudet.
Upon receiving this letter I called Shane Alfred up to ask him what was going on. After all, he did state I had three months. His response was, “It’s close enough.” In other words, Shane Alfred has no problem lying and going back on his word. To him an entire three weeks means nothing. I see this as a very untrustworthy businessman. How can you tell someone three months and then three weeks before this date you go back on your word because it’s “close enough” to the deadline?
