We won't say the Centerpoint Apartments on Frankford Road is one of the sleaziest apartment complexes in Dallas, because last time we checked the business had filed at least 700 lawsuits against its former tenants. The 700 suits don't include regular evictions, but instead are for offenses such as excessive cleaning fees, "damage beyond normal wear and tear" and breaking leases early. (You might be dirtying the place up real bad, but Centerpoint still doesn't want you to leave, as hundreds of former tenants have learned).
Mark Graham Most people give up and pay Centerpoint, but C.J. Duffey has been trying to fight them on appeal. Now they've gone after his mother's bank account.
So rather than say something like "These people sure sue a lot and are really good it," or "For God's sake don't live there," we will simply point out that the Centerpoint Apartment complex is owned by a family of debt collectors who, after suing tenants, then sue their banks in order to freeze their accounts and force them to pay up. As an example of how adept Centerpoint is at bank garnishment, we point to January 13, when Centerpoint successfully froze the bank account of a 72-year-old grandmother in Sulphur Springs who has never lived there.More »
