Dutch Ridge HOA – Does This Homeowners Association Extort Money?

On or around April sixteen of two thousand fourteen, I received a letter in my mail claiming I owed money to Dutch Ridge Homeowners Association. I received this letter from Metro Collection Service Inc. Once upon a time I "owned" a townhome, maintained by Dutch Ridge Homeowners Association.

However, when I sold my property in late two thousand and twelve, Dutch Ridge Homeowners Association, settled for any past due HOA fees. I sold that townhome in a short sale. Therefore Dutch Ridge Homeowners Association agreed to forgive past HOA dues at settlement.

Around November of two thousand and thirteen, nearly a year after this short sale, Metro Collection Service Inc. started calling me. I had one conversation with I think Cindi Nash, but could have been another employee from this collection agency. I denied I owed anybody any money and even denied I was a person they were looking for.

Finally, in middle April of two thousand and fourteen, I received this letter below, from Metro Collection Service Inc. I did not respond to this letter and instead called a former realtor's assistant, that had closed on that afore mentioned short sale deal. This person requested I email or fax a copy of this collection agency communication.

Just two days ago, May fourteen of two thousand and fourteen, I decided to follow up on this matter. A quick phone call from a prior real estate agent assistant and I quickly found out that Dutch Ridge Homeowners Association stated this was a "clerical error". This real estate agent had actually contacted a title company that was involved.

This title company then clarified what allegedly went wrong. Was this really a "clerical error" or was Dutch Ridge Homeowners Association trying to extort money from me, after I moved out of one of their maintained townhomes? Perhaps this is common practice by Tom McCann, president of Dutch Ridge Homeowners Assocation, whom has been their president for many years.
