March 10,2000 UPDATE There are hundreds of victims of real estate fraud like those posted on this site.It has become clear to me that a pattern,long term of victimizing customers both at the BROKER level and the National level has occured.It is imperative that all victims of these outrageous acts of fraud and deception be brought before a court of law. The U.S.Dept. of Justice and National Fraud hotline,the Federal Trade Commission and each states attorney General needs to have reports filed by every victim who has been a victim of fraud. Fo those protected under civil rights and ADA law and discrimination laws the victims should file with the Federal goverment. Only when we work together can we achieve justice. There will be class action litigation on a national level if the officers of Coldwell Banker refuse to correct these injustices done to hundreds if not thousands of families these past many years. Coldwell Banker should live up to its committment of doing the right thing for its customers-if not then the customers will do what it takes to change this injustice.

UPDATE May 23/ You cannot even believe C-B's Vice President to be truthful! On March 3/1/2000 we got a response from Ms.Claudia Sinclair,VP of Affilliate services with copies as noted sent to Alex Perriello, President and CEO, Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation, C. Patteson Cardwell, V.P. and Sr. Counsel, Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation, as well as the Affiliate file. She stated she spoke with the franchise owner and the franchise broker about our situation. She stated she was "confident our affiliate will communicate with you soon". Needless to say, we are still waiting.

When small children can be victims of toxic exposure in Montana,not in one location but numerous sites,where families must suffer years of pain and suffering all because of a lousey real estate commission.We as a family have suffered death threats,violence,intimidation,threats from a Billion dollar National Corp. and insurance Companies, that can cause families no resolution to justice,it is fair to say that life and death decisions can be made on families lives and others by a system so bloated by special interest that home buyers and their babies become "just another cost of doing business"in this Nation. Shame on the politicans of this state and this Nation that cannot see the pain and suffering that criminals with real estate license unchecked has caused.Is truth and justice and fairness forever gone from this Nation?We will fight for justice and truth even if it takes 100 years.

I live in a white neighborhood and a black family looked at our house that we have listed with C-B. They got broomed off by the agent. Yes the word "niggers" did come up, and he said he does not sell anything to "those people".
