Customer Question
I recently went to mast...
I recently went to mast and from my LPOs mouth he told me that my LT had been telling him things that werent true about my mast. Is this okay? Is it legal for an officer to talk to other people like that and lie? Once i heard about this i stopped the conversation immediately. Now my LPO has called everyone saying that im threatening them. Which i didnt. All i said was that my LT shouldnt be saying those things to people who werent involved, and after the case was over.

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.
