Magnum Mgmt and Fortune East LLC have been playing funny games with our rent checks. We were tipped off to this shady strategy by Cooper Square Committee. The first month that Fortune owned our buildings and we were to pay our first rent to them, there was no invoice. No address to send a check to. When rent invoices did arrive the following month they were carelessly dropped on our doorsteps in unsealed envelops. We have learned to expect no concern or respect from Ben Shaoul and Fortune East LLC. Now this is their nasty little trick. They wait 6 to 8 weeks to deposit a rent check due on say October 1st. The November rent invoice arrives saying you owe 2 moths rent. They try to trip you up. We only have a PO Box as an address. Fortune East has kept the address of their office a secret. It seems like they want to make it a bit difficult to actually pay the rent. Easier to fuck you up and build a phony case against you. They have been using this strategy on all the rent stabilized tenants. This happened to me and I was caught off guard. I put a stop payment on the check. $27! I learned through our Tenant Assoc to set up online payments to a PO Box at the bank. Fortune gets paid. The money comes out of my account. There is a tracking number. If they wait 8 weeks or longer to deposit the check, the bank considers them paid. If they lose the check? Not my problem. The bank considers Fortune paid. I have not had any trouble since I started online payment. It especially burns us up at OE4 that Ben Shaoul and Fortune East are actively, and aggressively employing this shady tactic against the senior citizens in our buildings.
