Leopoldo Briceno was the focus of a recent thread with a number of TA members saying they had been ripped off by him, see tripadvisor.com/…postreply
‘Unfortunate’ seems to be putting things too mildly and I thought Leopoldo Briceno deserved a thread putting his name up in lights to highlight his illicit activities. In fact besides the above thread another poster complained of LP back in 2005, showing this is not a new case.
My father-in-law rented Apartment 253 NE 2nd Street Miami last Easter 2013 after seeing it on Flipkey. He first payment was to Flipkey, the balance was requested by LP himself, as owner.
My father-in-law stayed 10 days but never received back his $600 damage deposit. He has been dealing with the Florida consumer protection office for the last few months, but as they are unable to locate the elusive Leopoldo Briceño, no progress has been made and the case is likely to be dropped.
Flipkey say they broke relations with LP even before my father-in-law's rental period began.
Hopefully this thread will highlight the need to steer well clear of Leopoldo Briceno.
