May 2009

::: May 2009 :::

On May 1, 2009 things were not adding up, the excuses were becoming more frequent for not paying us, for Graham not to find a job. It was feeling more and more like there was more going on here then we could see.

After May 3, 2009 it was obvious to us that he was not going to be able to move out. We allowed Graham to extend his stay until May 28 to allow for more time for the checks to come in and for Graham to find a place to live. He agreed to keep paying the $66.00 a day for the extended period.

On May 6, 2009 we drove Graham to the airport; he was flying from SeaTac to SFO as he said he had some business meetings to attend and was hoping to be able to make some money to help pay us some of the money he owed us.

I did have my reservations and it seemed odd to me, he claimed he had little to no money so how was he going to be able to afford to stay there. This turned into another nightmare as he had issues with the hotel he was staying in and he could not pay the bill and they were holding his luggage ‘hostage’. According to him his brother (name removed) finally paid the bill for the hotel.

On May 15, 2009 in an e-mail Graham writes:
“I owe a lot to you. None of this has been fun and when all the dust settles, I will do what I can as often as I can for you as if you were a brother. I hate the fact that you are sick and on a budget and can't afford to do things “

He continues on:
“Well, I hope this Alaska [airlines] deal is a permanent one and you will see something from me every month as if I were taking care of a family member. I want you to be happy and enjoy some of the nicer things in life again. I saw your pain while I was there and regret that I couldn't help but maybe in the future a vacation or do and some extra income will help.”

On May 16, 2009 Graham talks about the Nortel phone systems he has been hired to sell:
“So Tuesday, I have about $7,000.00 worth of phone equipment coming in and I will be refurbishing and cleaning each unit and resetting the programming ”

On May 17, 2009 when my partner goes to check our UPS store mailbox the manager asks my partner to get Graham to sign some paperwork as he was getting mail at the UPS store daily and they had a policy that if you are getting mail they needed your information (I.D., name and so on)

My partner comes home and gives Graham the form to fill out. Graham refuses and calls the manager. Graham apparently talked to the manager for over an hour. He tells the manager he refuses to fill the paperwork out. The manager requests Graham to come down the UPS store and that they would talk. Graham refuses.

The UPS store manager talks to my partner the next day and tells him that they will be sending all incoming mail from Graham back to sender.

My partner informs Graham

Graham’s response via e-mail:
“By law he can't hold my mail but he can send it back to the local post office. They will call by ten and tell me how to get it. I have to fill out a forwarding order but they can retrieve it and hold it. He can't make a threat to hold my mail and must return it to the local post office who then can intercept it and hold it for me or reroute it here. But first it has to be approved. I'm waiting on their call.”

On May 19, 2009 Graham doesn’t get his shipment of the phone equipment [Nortel Phones]
As a result of not filling out the paperwork at the UPS store Graham has the incoming phone equipment that was going to be sent to the UPS store rerouted to the Auburn FedEx station for pick-up.

May 20, 2009 Graham goes to Auburn, Washington to pick up the phone equipment.
He claims all 9 boxes have been damaged in transit from San Francisco to Seattle by FedEx.
Graham says he has talked to his brother (name removed) and asks him to pay us for the rent that Graham owes us. Graham states that (name removed) will send us the check within a week but he has to keep it from his wife and that it will also cost Graham pain medication as (name removed) is a pain medication addict.

May 21, 2009 sent rent amount due per Graham’s request so that (name removed) can get us payment.

February 20, 2009 thru May 21, 2009
Room / Utilities / food
Total $5,280.00

May 22, 2009 Graham decides to move out.
Graham promises to pay me $250.00 to help him pack and move his belongings into storage. I agree to help move his belongings into a Public Storage unit in Canyon Park, Washington.

May 23, 2009 2:13am Graham gets a hotel room at the Westin downtown Seattle.
I e-mail Graham asking for an update on his brother’s incoming check…

“No update but I have his account number in one of my messages on my phone and that is all I need. He is in Arkansas at his new mountain home with my Dad. Today is Dad’s birthday and he is giving him the house. So I can't call as my Dad would kill him. Plus he wouldn't have that with him anyway. But the account number should be fine.”
