Small Claims Case in Texas

Connie from Dallas became a Collect Back Rent Team member in January. Connie was a retired teacher who is a landlord of 9 rental units. She had a tenant move out of her rental owing 2 month’s rent and damages of $2,000. Connie had listened to the hard luck stories and he moved out without notice.

Connie had received $1,000 for security deposit so her first step is to send an itemized statement of where the security deposit dispersed. The security deposit ($1,000) itemized statement she sent the tenant deducted the $1,000 of the damages which left a balance of $1,000 of damages. In the security deposit letter, a Demand Notice was included for $3,000 (rent and damages remaining). Connie sent the itemized statement and demand notice by certified mail with a return receipt.

After 30 days, the former tenant failed to respond so Connie filed a Small Claims case … Read More

Do You Have Small, Tiny Red Bugs in Your Bathroom?

Although there are several possibilities, the potential of a stored product pest infestation should not be overlooked- in particular, the presence of flour beetles.

The confused flour beetle and the red flour beetle look very similar in appearance. The best way to distinguish the two is by examining their antennae. The RFB’s antennae take on a clubbed shape with three segments at the end, while the CFB’s antennae gradually enlarge towards the tip, ending in a four-segmented club.

Another difference between the two beetles is that the RFB (primarily found in southern states) is a strong flier, while the CFB (primarily a northern pest) does not fly.

As adults, both beetles have shiny, reddish brown bodies that are about 1/8 inch long, flattened, and oval. They have a very wide food range including flour, rice, cereals, grains, spices, grain products, shelled nuts, dried fruit, chocolate, beans and other similar materials.… Read More

If You’re Attacked in a Small Bathroom – Self Defense for Bathroom Attack

I recently read a very disturbing article about a young woman who was sexually assaulted in an airplane bathroom. She was attacked on a red eye flight, by a drunk man who sat in the seat next to her on the plane. It’s hard to imagine how an attack can occur in such a tight place, as an airplane bathroom, with loads of passengers just nearby. But it did. We have to remember that sexual assaults are attacks of opportunity. He followed her to the bathroom, controlled and intimidated her and assaulted her.
