I gave them $50 for application fee. They said it would take up to 48 hours to process.
After 48 hours I emailed to check status and did not get a reply. I emailed them the next day and they replied back "Sorry we already got an approved application and deposit on this property from someone else". I asked for my money back and they refused.
Why would you take money from someone to apply when somebody else has already applied and got approved and put a deposit down? OR ...
Why would you not inform the applicant someone else applied and is pending approval? In either scenario, one of the two applicants is going to lose $50. That's a mathematical reality.
It's really simple basic math. Don't you think the applicant has a right to know in this situation?
Monetary Loss: $50.
