My husband and I have owned a rental condominium at Castle Pines Golf Villas at PGA Village in Port St. Lucie, Florida, since 2005. Since 2009, it has been managed by Vision One Hospitality Consultants of Kissimmee, Florida (also doing business as Vision Two Property Management of Port St. Lucie, Florida, and/or Castle Pines Golf Villas in Port St. Lucie, Florida). These entities are managed and/or owned by Al Schollianos, President, and/or his daughter, Karla Schollianos-Pritchard, Vice President. According to the contract with the owners, the rental manager has a fiduciary responsibility to pay owners all amounts due at least quarterly and maintain all books and records in accordance with customary business practices and generally accepted accounting principles. However, since January 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014, we have received NO monies from the Schollianos’s company, despite dozens of phone calls and emails (and, most recently, a demand letter from our lawyer). Moreover, despite our growing concern about this situation, we received a letter via email dated April 23, 2014, from Karla Schollianos saying: “…We will NOT be closing our doors. Castle Pines Golf Villas will continue to service our owners and guests. We are currently working out payment plans and we will contact all owners with payment of funds. Please disregard any rumors being spread about your rental company.” Note that this email letter was received just about two months before we received another e-letter dated July 3, 2014, from an employee (not even management!) indicated the company had closed its doors as of June 30, 2014 — with no advance warning whatever and leaving us and other owners completely in the lurch. Worst of all, they owe us substantial monies: a total of $14,620.16 + proceeds for Q2 (April-June 2014, for which they provided no rental records, despite the contractual obligation to do so) + legal fees of $500 to date. — For 2013: $5373.01 (Unit A) + $3563.91 (Unit B, a lock-off) = $8936.92 — For 2014 (Q1): $1284.79 (Unit A) + $1492.19 (Unit B) = $2776.98 — Sub-Total: $11,713.90 — Plus monies still owed to us and not received per the 1099 for 2013 they sent us, which appears to have been issued falsely to the IRS ($2906.26) Note that these two amounts total $14,620.16, but exclude Q2 2014 rental proceeds and any legal fees we are due trying to get these monies owed us. Any assistance by RipOff Report readers in recouping the monies owed us and exposing the shameful and fraudulent business practices of Vision One Hospitality/Vision Two Property Management/Castle Pines Golf Villas is much appreciated. We hope others learn from our experiences without getting scammed themselves, as we have been. What do we want? Just to be paid the monies that have been owed us — for almost two years! These are: 1) $14,620.16, including rental proceeds from January 2013 thru April 2014, and monies not received by us that were reported falsely to the IRS via a 1099 for 2013. 2) PLUS: Proceeds from April 1 thru June 30, 2014 (Q2). The actual amount is not known by us because the mandatory reports were never provided to us. The amount is estimated at $2500.00. 3) PLUS: $500.00 for attorneys’ fees spent to date. Meanwhile, CAVEAT EMPTOR! If you should cross paths with these unresponsive, unethical, dishonest individuals and their companies, here’s our advice: Be afraid, be very afraid.
