So I live with 2 other dudes. Our rent was $750.00. The land lord sold the house. Now we have a new landlord. So the last 2 month we have been living in our house with no lease. We just made a verbal agreement with the old landlord until all the paper work was finished. The new landlord is bringing over a lease soon. Last month my roommate and I gave the other roommate money for the rent. Well come to find out he only gave the landlord $50.00. This means he did not pay rent himself and he took $400.00 dollars of ours and put it in his pocket. Yeah he is a theif. So I guess I wsa wondering if anyone had $100.00 to bail me out of jail when I punch him in the face. lol Not really but i should. Noone else knows that I know about it yet. I went to the old landlords house and had him make me copy of the receipts. So I thik I'm going to tell the other roommate about it and just sit around the house and call him a theif all night long until he either leaves or trys to attack me. I will not touch him unless he does first. I am not going to jail becasue someone stole from me. Nothing worse than a theif!!

Wow! That is horrible, and very bold I must say, to take so much money! Good luck with that situation, if he doesn't leave, he should be kicked out. Not only is he stealing from you, but he is stealing from the land lord.

Yeah what is even worse is that I have known him for about 27 yrs. He has done it before but has not for about 5 yrs.
