I was the victim of a gypsy/ grafters named Michael Whitsell and Misty Whitsell. In July 15, 2017 the whitesells approached me to rent them my house because there house was destroyed by a tornado in Canton. I felt sorry for them and rented the house without a deposit. The very elderly neighbor across the street was swindled out of $2500 cash by the whitesells and their sorry tales all lies to hurt old people. they are afraid he he going to come back and beat them up. I had the power and water turned on already because we were cleaning it and repairing it. I live part time out of state because its to hot so i left the city in august with the promise that Michael whitesell would switch the utilities and pay their rent on time. Michael said he changed the utilities over. He did not. …….they did not pay their rent. either when I returned to tx in Dec 15 I discovered he never took the bills out of my name. and started eviction on them. They were gone in two days. the biggest issue is Reliant elect Somehow they sweet talked the phone people at Reliant energy to keep the electric on by lying to them and using my name. Same with water Company…….I never authorized that ever. the bill now is $1378.18. I filed a police rept and a fraud rept with both utilities I spoke to a woman named Caroline the investigator at reliant after 3 weeks and she said ITS MY FAULT… I should have double checked it was turned off. I ashed for a suprv and was told it would take 24 hrs for her to call me back I was angry and upset that a big utility company like Reliant would blame me for a Grifters theft he hit me up for $3000 in back rent $1378 in Electric bills and $778 in water bills and deposits After the water company turned off my water he turned it back on illegally and now its going to cost me a $300 deposit and $178 water usage i did not use plus the $300 bill My issue is with Reliant Energy Caroline in the Credit operations dept 888-834–0001 and Michael.whitesell Are they nuts saying im to blame for his being a bad guy and dozens of recorded calls to Reliant by michael whitesell promising pmt If i did not pay my electric bill 10 days late it would be shut off why did they not shut off the electric in Sept for non payment but left it on till Dec 15th when i called i HAD TO CALL AGAIN on Dec 19 to again get it shut off. there are dozens of these listing i found in 3 states i could find criminal records on both of them and TURNS OUT HES A CHILD MOLESTER TOO heu2019s got 2 little girls with them THESE FOLKS GOT TO BE STOPPED THEY HANG OUT AT DAYS IN IN GUN BARREL CITY.
