That stinks, seriously, but if it’s in the lease than you have to abide by it. Typically you are supposed to pay the money before getting the dog or when you get the dog. Why would they ask for money now and not before I’m wondering though?

@Klein2bReidy:  if you didn’t keep the receipt from the money order you’re SOL.

@Klein2bReidy:  you will be leaving in a week? I would personally try to avoid it by talking to them, letting them know I can’t make the payment until next week because of pay day or something but it depends on how quickly they will try to take action against you. Do they know you’re leaving?

$100 isn’t worth a whole lot of trouble it’s going to cause if they’re gonna go crazy over it but it’s something I’d try to avoid personally

Edit: Wait so you already paid the $100 but they’re saying you didn’t? Did you keep the receipt for the money order? If not, you CAN go to the bank & ask them if they can locate the money order you purchased & find out if it’s been cashed or not & if not, you can put a stop payment on it for a fee I believe. I used to be a teller & it IS possible to track them, just a bit of work so you have to get someone helpful

It looks like they may let you file a claim for a ‘missing’ money order, but it will cost $12 and might take a while.  You may be better off talking to the office about losing the original money order and shot records.  If you remember specific dates that you phoned them about your dog, etc. that couldn’t hurt.

From their site:

Important Information About Your Money Order

Your money order receipt stub is required for stop payment and as proof of purchase. A replacement of the money order will not be considered until 30 days after purchase date and a fee will be charged for this service. Other fees may apply.

If your money order is lost, stolen or destroyed, go into any Amscot branch and request a money order claim form. Fill out the money order claim form completely, attach the original money order stub and mail it all together with a $12.00 non-refundable money order (for the processing fee) to the address specified on the claim form. Requests will only be processed if the original money order stub is included. 

If this money order is not presented for payment within one year from date of purchase, the issuer will impose a service charge of two dollars ($2.00) for each month or fraction thereof, thereafter, that this money order remains unpaid up to a maximum of one hundred and forty-four dollars ($144.00).

Did you pay for the money order with a debit card? It may be pretty easy to show you did pay for a money order, but proving that it got dropped off may be harder. Honestly I’d just ignore them, you’ll be out in 2 weeks theres not a whole lot you can do, and they will likely just take another 100 out of your deposit.

they entered your apartment with no notice? i’m pretty sure that’s illegal and i don’t think it varies from state to state. the norm is 24 hour notice. if you already paid, don’t pay again. the fact that you have the stub is proof that you paid. sounds like it’s a really good thing you’re moving out soon!
