I had a bad experience when inquiring by online form and phone message about a rental property listed at Harcourts Caloundra in Queensland that we were very keen to view. A day or so later (actually 2 days later) there had been zero response so I put a one star review on Google Review. Well that unleashed a tirade of abuse and insults from the Owner and Principal of the agency (who also happened to be the owner of the property) and he was somehow able to have my Google Review removed. So I put another review of his facebook page that was also removed.
At 8.13pm on 26 September 2019 the Owner emailed the following insults to me to accompany insults he had previously delivered, none of which were true.
“You are a pathetic individual and a bankrupt fool. You have nothing to offer the world other than your aggression and irrational argument you will die a lonely man. That itself is incredible satisfaction”.
I was so annoyed by this behaviour and the management at Harcourts Australia also giving me the virtual finger, when they publish such glowing values about themselves, I decided to award this bunch with one of my free websites and 3 domains on special at the time.
No way would we want to rent from this Lunatic Landlord.
Is this departure from published representations about Values and Philosophy, a contravention of the ACL?
