I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

You need to call them and ask to speak with a Supervisor about this issue. You cannot go from them owing you $200.00 to you now owing them $900.00. If they refuse to resolve your issue, to remove the charge from your account and send you $200.00 that they owe you, then you may file complaint against them with FCC. You should also file complaint with the Better Business Bureau and your Attorney General's Office, Consumer Protection Division.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
