My roommate and I saw an ad on craigslist about a townhouse in riverview florida stating it was for rent. We contacted the father who is john burgess sr he stated that he was not in tampa he was from Boston and his son is taking care of his places that are in tampa and he could show and give us all the information we needed. We met up with the son john burgess jr yesterday which was feb 2 2015 the initial conversation started sun evening. My roommate has been at work while I have been dealing with them. I was suppose to meet up with the son yesterday he told me 11 am then texted me at 9:45 am that morning saying he would be later. I kept calling him and making sure I had all the papers and documentation needed he finally told me to meet him after my roommate had gotten off work at 3. She had the chance to get off early so we could all meet we met him at bank where he said the lawyer would be there too. He walks up to our vehicle and hands us a silver key and said here’s to your house and we said thank you. When we walked into bank there was a receptionist and she told us to go in conference room then said the lawyer would be about 15 minutes so we agreed to wait for him. The son told the lady that it was ok and he would just sign and we would too on lease and she could give them to him. Once we signed he told us to follow him to Bank of America to deposit the 1100 to him. We walked in and he has two deposit slips signed 1100 the place address and his name we never saw him go to teller or deposit the money we left and he said to call him. We go to house the does not match to door and neither did they answer their phones as we sat outside for a response the dad finally answered and said that his guy changed the locks and we be that way around 6 pm the guy never showed up. John burgess sr told us that he would get it situated and to call him in the morning . The morning came they both are giving us the run around and yet have we met the lawyer or saw or heard from the son again. Today which is feb 3 he told us the lawyer would meet at house @7 with paper work and keys. I told my roommate I had a bad feeling two young females just moved here it’s a scam ! something told me to google his name and as soon as I did both of them popped up!!! Please stop these cowards!! .
