Remember This Post?
The HUD letter below is a masterful attempt at 'shrinking' the issue, and actually 'lying'.
1. HUD does not address 'Phony Tenant' charges or 'Wells Fargo' Scam.
2. HUD says it has nothing to do with Coronado Springs, though
HUD letters are issued regularly by Coronado Springs.
3. HUD never forwarded the evidence to the State Agency responsible for oversight. They made a phone call and edited my claims orally.

Dear Mr. Stillman:
Our office received your certified letter sent on November 7, 2017, that included two letters that you sent to Coronado Springs Apartments management and one letter addressed to FPI Management.

You stated your concerns regarding a maintenance request and a security deposit for Coronado Springs Apartments in Seattle, WA.
Our office is sympathetic to your concerns and would like to help you connect with the correct department regarding your issues.

Our office called Ms. Lanakay Lipp, who is the Senior Portfolio Analyst for WSHFC that monitors Coronado Springs Apartments. Ms. Lipp reached out to Irene Boe, HCCP Compliance Specialist for FPI Management. Ms. Lipp wrote that it appears that FPI has made all reasonable attempts to address your concerns, as it appears that your security deposit issue has been resolved, and you are impeding any further action on your window request. If you care to talk with her about this or the management's practices, please feel free to reach her directly by calling 206-287-4443. You can also email her at email@example.com.

4. HUD tries to pass the buck to a State Agency and takes no responsibility. Sounds like a cover-up.
5. Did you see the HUD 2016 audit? $500 billion missing
6. HUD refers to State Agency as a 'Portfolio Analyst'. Sounds like a for-profit person.
PS. btw, my security deposit issue hasn't been addressed, let alone resolved, though HUD states it has.
What's our next move to shake, rattle, roll, (and document)
