* entered into a clearly defined verbal contract
with me on 11/02/2012 during a 120 minute phone call. On 11/06/2012 prior to purchasing airline tickets on his behalf, which was part of the agreement, the terms of the contract were reviewed again to assure that they were clearly understood by both * and Myself. This was a 25 minute conversation. * once again agreed to the terms. Since the terms of the agreement were agreed upon on 11/02/2012 * fully violated the terms of the agreement on January 31st, 2013. In addition to this *was loaned items that he has refused to return, Stolen Property from my home, and engaged in making false allegations and spreading malicious rumors about me to multiple people which have caused damage to my reputation. * also removed property from my home without my permission. After January 31st * made intermittent contact indicating that he was willing to complete the terms of our agreement. Upon realizing that * was clearly not going to honor the terms of the agreement I have made multiple attempts to negotiate a settlement to this dispute with no success. I have made numerous requests both verbal and in writing that I expected him to return the initial investment made on his behalf by me.* has to date refused to engage in a meaningful conversation on the topic in spite of me giving him multiple opportunities and options to settle this debt in a satisfactory manner.
The items purchased for * under the terms of the contract included Airfare, clothing, eyeglasses and other items that* had indicated he was in emergent need of in order to obtain gainful employment with stable housing to gain stability in his life. I have since been informed by people close to * that he had intended to take advantage of me and had no intention of meeting the terms of the agreement.
* was loaned some items for a temporary trip that he insisted was necessary, two of which he was told he could keep. Upon not returning from the trip he has refused to return or make arrangements to return my property other than stating he would, but never following through. Over the past 4 months I have made 4 requests for my belongings (except those gifted) to be returned to me. I have supplied my address to him on 4 different occasions. One occasion I sent him a letter which he communicated to me in a brief test message that he was refusing to open. The final attempt was over a month ago when I sent him a box to place my things in and I would have it picked up at his home requiring no effort on his part. * refused to return my phone calls to get the information regarding the details of the pickup information. * also reported that he had lost some of these items included property he had stolen from my home.
* was engaging in making false and derogatory comments about me resulting in damage to my professional and personal reputation. * admitted on one occasion that he had engaged in doing this prior to him violating the terms of the agreement. As a result of the comments and rumors initiated by * I received phone calls and text messages, while at work and at home that were threatening and accusatory. I work as a Registered Nurse in a busy Emergency Room and these messages became a significant and unnecessary distraction during my work day. I have since learned that * has made similar allegations against other people prior to my involvement with him and since.
I am seeking a total of 3500.00. The itemized list of goods purchased on behalf of * that would fall under the terms of our agreement amount to a total of 1207.76. The items loaned to Mr. Connolly are currently listed at a value of 446.00 on Amazon.com which is a decreased worth from what I paid for the items new. I seek 1846.24 in punitive damages
for total of 3500.00. One item stolen from my home only has a value of approximately 20 dollars but was of sentimental value to me and will be difficult to replace. I also seek the punitive damages for the violation of my trust by stealing from my home, violating the terms of the agreement, and refusing to return my belongings as well as for false derogatory comments made about me to multiple people resulting in my being harassed both at work and at home based directly on information that originated with *
In addition to multiple requests that Mr. Connolly reimburse me for not meeting the terms of the contract I attempted to make other arrangements to resolve this that would have been mutually beneficial and made concessions clearly in his favor in trying to reach some type of mutually acceptable settlement. * has forced me to seek remedy through the legal system since he is unwilling to take any responsibility or communicate with me. He lives in PA currently and was there when he entered the agreement. I remain in CA where I loaned him the items and where he stole from me. Do I sue in CA, PA, I also want to know if I can notify neiighbors of what he did to me.
