Mr. Jon Bell leased a 1000 sq. ft. storefront from my company on 8/24/2013 for a term of one year. The lease commencement date was to be 10/01/2013. On 8/24/2013, we sat down at our bank, signed and notarized the lease and Mr. Bell wrote 2 checks for the transaction; $2,900.00 for the security and $17,400.00 for the rent. Mr. Bell had agreed to pay the years rent up front due to his extremely poor credit report. In good faith, we removed the property from the rental market and began to ready the space for Mr. Bell. Shortly thereafter, both checks were returned by my bank for non sufficient funds. Mr. Bell proceeded to give us the run-around for months. The money was always “just a few days away” or “almost ready to drop into my account”. Mr. Bell told a very convincing tale and seemed to be a genuine nice guy, we allowed him some time to figure out his finances. Eventually we put the space back on the market and had eventually leased the space to a different tenant. Now we are after Mr. Bell for 8-1/2 months rent plus expenses. A bill of almost $16,000. Mr. Bell continues to give us the run around by constantly telling us that the funds are only a few days away. We are about to drop all of the relevant info and proof to the Office of the Attorney General and formally file Check Fraud charges. It is my belief that Mr. Bell never had the funds in his account, contrary to what he tells us. Mr. Bell seems to have some issues with the truth. I am sure this will end up in court and we will ultimately have a judgment against him. .
