I was looking for a place and put a deposit of $1,000 down... I had given him [Doug] a deposit at end of March for a May 1st move in date. However, after I had placed a deposit. I continued to see his ads reposted on craigslist with slight changes to them. When I questioned him about it, he said that it was simply "auto-repost". However, sensing that there might be something. I started printing the ads because the ads were not the same (Figured that if it was "auto-post" that it would repost the old one and not newly written sentences). I contacted his land lord and was told that he does not actually own the place and was not allowed to "rent" another room.With this "fourth" other, Doug has ripped off five people for at least $5,000.
Since then Ive been unsuccessfully trying to get my money back.
Hi, I am David Zetland, and I am trying to get my money back from Doug. He has also stolen money from others. You can contact me at dzetland AT gmail.com or 510-455-4656.
