I was told by Dax that he had the perfect place for my needs. I went to his office and he went on and on about how he had "Exclusive Rentals" that you can't find in the Billings Gazette or on the internet.
He said that he has landlords that only list with him and that they are usually $200-300 less than from the Gazette. He makes you beleive that you will get your money back easily and get a great place. He also says that his landlords don't charge you application fees or anything else so by paying him you are saving money. Well I paid him and got the list.
I asked for him to point out the one he was talking about and he highlighted 3. There wasn't my perfect place in fact there wasn't anything on the list that would fit my needs. They were all the same price as the Gazette prices (won't make your money back) and they were not in the area I needed. He bold faced lied to me to get my money.
Most of the listings were either apartments (can find by yourself) or listings that had been rented for months. Most of the listing were listed on Craigslist and he pulled them from there. On his phone message he says he has hundreds of listings, that's a lie, most of them were already rented.
I asked him for my money back and he said he doesn't give refunds. I consider myself a smart person but believed he was honest and trustworthy because he has been in business for 30 years.
Well since then have told people around Billings and they have stories of this guy doing this as far back as 20 years.
This is a sad that no one has stopped this crook. Don't be like me, walk away!
