Welcome to The Jackson
Update: The Orlando Sentinel has published an article about us! You can read it by clicking here.
Update: WFTV Channel 9 has aired multiple stories about us! You can watch them by clicking here and here.
Update: We've set up a GoFundMe to help us file a lawsuit against our board. Please donate if you can!
The Jackson Condominium in downtown Orlando is in the midst of a hostile condo takeover by two brothers who have seized control of the board of directors and refuse to step down. They have hiked up the monthly fees for us (the residents), where at one point some of us were paying over $1,800 per month for a condominium that offers little in the way of amenities.
There is no clubhouse, no fitness center, no pool, no guest parking... nada. But hey, we do have a barbecue grill on the roof! To make matters worse, a "Right of First Refusal" policy was implemented, and we were put under pressure to either sell our units to the brothers at below market value, or let the high monthly payments slowly bleed us dry.
To top all of this off they skipped elections for almost four years, violated city ordinances, and made risky investments that resulted in major financial losses. Normally you'd think that the property management company, in our case - FirstService Residential - would step in to help, they've thus far turned a blind eye to the entire situation and we've been left to fend for ourselves.
While this story may sound humorous at times, it's been a nightmare for those who live here.
The president of our association. He's the ringleader who seems to be driving all of the board decisions.
Nabeel's brother, and the secretary of our association. He does not live on the property so we barely interact with him, but he does support and cast the same votes as his brother.
Dustin is a real estate agent from Miami. He was a previous board member, and at one time both he and his family owned a large number of units here, but they recently sold most of them to the Ansari brothers.
However, the Nero family still owns unit 201 - which coincidentally happens to be the same unit that our board is now trying to force us into buying using association funds.
Rigging the Elections
The Ansari-led board at the Jackson Condominium had skipped elections for almost four years. They used that time to their advantage, purchasing additional units until they had enough voting power to ensure they could never be voted out. The elections were now essentially rigged in their favor, as there were simply not enough units left to vote them out.
They also passed an amendment to increase board member term limits from 1 year to 3 years. So not only were elections pointless now, they would be few and far between.
On top of this, they also passed a Right of First Refusal. This meant that once an owner put their listing on the market and received an offer, the board could swoop in and block the sale.
At that point the owner would only have two options - (a) sell their unit to the board instead, or (b) cancel the sale and start the process all over again. Which would be pointless of course, since the board could just swoop in, again and block the next sale.
Show me more details!
Nabeel and Faisal Ansari own and/or control over half of the units in our building. This has provided them with the voting power to do as they please. And boy, have they seemed to abuse that power.
The Ansari brothers led the effort to add a Right of First Refusal to our condominium declaration. Now whenever a unit goes on sale and the owner receives an offer, they can block the sale and purchase it themselves (which they have already done).
However before we dig into the details - we need to first go back in time a bit to see how it all started. Specifically, back to October 2018. During that month an election notice was mailed out. Dustin wasn't really in the picture at this time, and the Ansari brothers only owned 4 units. After receiving the notice, the Ansari brothers both declared that they would be running for election.
In February of 2019 they (unfortunately) both won seats and were elected to 1 year terms. Nobody really knew of their intentions at the time, and given they only owned 4 units at the time - no red flags were raised.
In March of 2020, Governor DeSantis had declared a COVID-19 state of emergency - and so the board decided to cancel the election that was supposed to be held that month. Conspicuously, no reasons were given as to why the elections couldn't simply be held online or via mail-in ballots.
In May of 2021, they scheduled another election... Or at least so we thought. It ended up being canceled at the last minute, and again they blamed it on COVID-19. Similarly, no reasons were given as to why the elections couldn't simply be held online or via mail-in ballots. They stated they were going to reschedule but surprise surprise, that never occurred. This repeated pattern gave the appearance that they were using the pandemic to their own advantage. As Winston Churchill once said - "Never let a good crisis go to waste".
On October 5th 2021, Dustin Nero entered our story. For some reason they really wanted him on the board of directors - as they decided on a whim to add him alongside Nabeel's wife. Just like that, amongst themselves, they declared it so. They completely disregarded the fact that in order to do this an election must be held (as per our bylaws). Even after being notified that this was against our bylaws, they still listed both Dustin Nero and Miljana Ansari as officers in our annual report, although they both "stepped down" from their positions shortly after being called out on this.
In April of 2022 they had another election scheduled. However when we notified them that Dustin Nero was ineligible to run for a board position as he didn't actually own any of his units, but rather his LLC did - they didn't quite react in the way we expected. Instead of removing him from the ballot however, Nabeel and Faisal canceled the election.
In July of 2022, the Ansari-led board amended our bylaws to allow LLCs - a move which would now allow Dustin Nero to now be eligible to hold a board position. In addition to amending the bylaws, they also updated our articles of incorporation to increase the term limits of board members from 1 year to 3 years.
A new election date was scheduled for December 7th, 2022. Finally! We finally had an election after almost four years of skipped elections! Except... it was pointless. The fact that they slowly accumulated 25+ units and passed the aforementioned amendments meant that nobody had a realistic chance to vote them out. They delayed long enough to successfully rig the system in their favor.
Between the futility of participating in the election and some confusing wording on the ballot instructions, the election concluded exactly how we expected it to. The Ansari brothers had re-elected themselves into board seats - except this time they had 3 year terms.
Turning a Profit
The Ansari brothers, who by now controlled the majority of our board, continued to violate city ordinance by renting out their units on Airbnb, VRBO, and Expedia for less than 30 days. Despite being repeatedly notified of these infractions by us, they ignored our pleas and continued breaking the law.
Even though their actions violated the rules of our Condominium Declaration - no warnings or fines were issued. This was not surprising however as that would entail the board writing fines... to themselves. Nabeel Ansari himself even stated that he thinks this "is not illegal in the figurative meaning of the word." Go figure 😐.
The goal of our board, or rather, the Ansari brothers - is to convert our building into a giant Airbnb hotel. They made this intent perfectly clear in the open letter they sent to the residents.
Show me more details!
The overwhelming majority of units owned by Nabeel Ansari, Faisal Ansari, and Dustin Nero were being rented out on airbnb.com, vrbo.com and expedia.com. However there was one slight problem - this was prohibited in our condominium declaration. Only residential use of units was allowed.
This was a quick fix for the Ansari-led board of course. In June of 2021, they amended the declaration to allow non-residential use if it's "approved by the board". The passing of this amendment was made especially easy as Nabeel told residents that it would only be used to allow longer-term rentals, e.g. 6 months or more, which sounded reasonable enough at the time.
It turned out they pulled a fast one on us. As soon as the amendment was passed, Airbnb and VRBO listings for The Jackson started popping up with only 1-2 day minimums. Residents were quickly being disturbed by loud noises, parties, and trash - all being caused by these transient guests. All hope was not lost though... During the following month, July of 2021, the city of Orlando passed a new ordinance that prohibited any short-term rentals that were less than 30 days.
The excitement around the seemingly good news was short-lived however, since this did not seem to deter the Ansari-led board. They kept on knowingly violating city ordinance by renting out entire units with 1 or 2 day minimums. Over the next year or so, the numerous complaints from residents to both the board and the city of Orlando regarding these short-term rentals went mostly unheeded.
Beginning in October of 2021, the board added over $133,000 to our annual budget. The justification for this new addition to our budget was that we needed to pay for a doorman - which they stated was to help "increase the security of our building". Which is ironic, considering a major reason why we need security is because of their short-term rentals. They then subsequently raised our monthly dues to cover this cost.
While increasing security was initially considered understandable, residents quickly began to suspect that this might just be an unnecessary expense for their personal gain. This was due in part to residents witnessing the doorman assisting Airbnb renters with their check-in process. Additionally, the board disabled the door access codes for all residents except themselves. When asked why, they stated that it was "for safety purposes".
The Ansari-led board of directors decided to impose a staggering $1.3 million dollar special assessment on us. Levying such a high amount has had a detrimental impact on the residents, some of whom were struggling to make ends meet. Note that their reasoning behind this special assessment was to "replenish our reserves".
However, after eight months, the reserves had only increased by around $54,000, despite the fact that they should have increased by at least $285,000 based on the fees that were collected. This means that less than 20% of the monthly payments have been used for their intended purpose. Were they lying to us? No, no, that couldn't be possible right?
We (the residents of The Jackson) are left feeling angry and frustrated as we struggle to pay these exorbitant fees whilst seeing little to no benefit in return. The lack of transparency and accountability has only added to our existing disillusionment and discontent.
Show me more details!
In February of 2022, the board levied a special assessment of 1.3 million dollars on the residents of The Jackson. The reasoning provided was that we needed to "replenish our reserves".
This had led to some residents paying over $1,800 in monthly dues alone. We were essentially being forced to pay the equivalent of two mortgages at once! This increased monetary pressure subsequently forced more owners to sell, and guess who happened to be sitting on the sidelines ready and waiting to buy them up? Yep, the now notorious Ansari brothers. Dustin Nero was also actively emailing unit owners offering to buy their units with cash. We seemed to be on a fast track to converting the building into a giant Airbnb hotel.
Angry, a group of residents took it upon themselves to hire a lawyer and see what legal options they had to help remedy the situation. Initially, none of the options sounded too promising as they all had long timelines for getting any meaningful results.
While Faisal Ansari has appeared to be the more reasonable of the two, his brother (Nabeel Ansari) has seemingly made it his personal mission to antagonize the residents here at The Jackson.
From sending threatening texts, throwing borderline homophobic insults, towing the cars of those who oppose him, and cursing at Ring doorbell cameras - it almost seemed as if he enjoyed tormenting the people who live here.
Show me more details!
One would think that the Ansari brothers would be smart enough to "keep a low profile", especially given the fact that the residents were getting upset and beginning to ask more questions - but one would be mistaken in that thinking. It seems that Nabeel in particular has made it his personal mission to antagonize the residents that live here. Not all residents mind you, seemingly just the ones who don't vote his way or don't turn a blind eye to him breaking the law.
For example, he's sent threatening texts to a resident who didn't vote the way he wanted them to during a meeting. Another notable example includes harassing a resident, poking fun at his hair color and using what said resident felt were offensive and borderline homophobic comments.
Another example includes Nabeel towing a resident's car out of their own space, for no good reason. Yet another example involves him damaging the unit below his, via a water leak from his unit, which seeped down into the unit below him causing damage. When asked about it he not only refused to help repair the damages but stated "Welcome to The Jackson we have lots of leaks!".
Yet another example includes Nabeel attempting to steal a parking spot that belonged to another resident. This was despite the fact that said resident had an estoppel indicating that he was indeed the legitimate owner, and that his ownership of the spot was already previously confirmed by the association.
And, yet, another example includes Nabeel antagonizing the residents of unit 408 every chance he gets. Take this Ring camera video of him smiling and waiving to their camera as he walks past, in an attempt to further get on their nerves. Or this video, where he calls the owner "Hija de puta, desgraciada", which translates to "motherf*cker".
Between Nabeel blatantly violating the law and bullying residents, it's galvanized us to dig deeper into the details regarding him and his family's background, as well as our financial statements. What we subsequently discovered was eye-opening to say the least.
Money (Not) Well Spent
Our Ansari-led board made a very questionable decision by investing almost half a million dollars of association funds into Bitcoin and stocks. As one would expect, this was a risky move. The investment lost almost half of its original value.
This financial loss was a major blow to our community, as money that was supposed to be used for the benefit of the residents has now been unnecessarily squandered. Such an irresponsible and risky investment is yet another example of their mismanagement and breach of fiduciary responsibility.
Show me more details!
We discovered that in January of 2021 the Ansari-led board motioned to move almost half a million dollars of our operating funds into Silver Gate Bank for "investment". There are couple of things that make this motion particularly concerning...
First, the funds being transferred were from a settlement we received years ago from the developer who built our condominium. It was a significant amount of money, one that could have been used to replenish our underfunded reserves (which once again was the justification for passing the special assessment).
Second, it turns out that the money didn't get transferred into "Silver Gate Bank", or at least not permanently. They transferred $200,000 over to an account with Interactive Brokers LLC which was subsequently used to invest in the stock market. Another $250,000 was transferred into the Gemini Exchange, where it was then used to buy Bitcoin. This turned out to be a ridiculously bad decision, and it's unknown whether any of the residents approved of this, let alone were made aware.
As you probably already know the markets crashed pretty hard in 2021, especially the cryptocurrency market. Most of us had no idea that our money was being invested so recklessly of course. By the time we found out, we had lost almost half of our original developer settlement money.
Even worse, they essentially kept these losses hidden from us by not reporting them to our property management company - FirstService Residential (who manages our budget). Our monthly financial statements continued to falsely state that no money had been lost. What's also a bit concerning is that apparently our LCAM only has access to some of our bank accounts, while Nabeel and/or Faisal have access to the rest.
They also spent almost $150,000 remodeling our common areas when they had no need of remodeling. The prevailing hypothesis here is that it was done to make their Airbnb rental listings more appealing. On top of that, we also discovered that the company who cleans our condominium - "Prime Properties International, LLC" - is owned by Nabeel. He's essentially paying himself for services needed by our condominium which seems like a huge conflict of interest.
Speaking of LLCs, Nabeel owns or has owned 61 different LLCs. Why does one need so many shell companies?
There's likely additional highly-questionable financial activity occurring here at The Jackson but it's been tough to prove, as we want to make sure we have the appropriate evidence to avoid making any false claims. We've requested a number of different association records. Most of which were not provided... So we were starting to get desperate in our quest to find out exactly what was happening with our money.
Calling in Reinforcements
We are facing a difficult and uncertain future as we struggle to deal with the actions of the Ansari brothers, who still control the board of directors. The residents here do not have the financial resources to go head-to-head with the Ansari family directly, and thus we are in desperate need of outside assistance.
Some have responded to the call, lending much needed support to stand up to the Ansari brothers and reclaim our community. Special thanks goes to Trevor Fraser of the Orlando Sentinel, Karla Ray of WFTV Channel 9 News, and Florida House of Representative Anna Eskamani.
Show me more details!
With the help of our lawyer, we filed a derivative demand requesting the aforementioned documents. Alongside the derivative demand we also filed a petition with the Department of Business and Professional Regulations (DBRP), and they've agreed to step in as an arbitrator. The DBPR has sent a demand to the association to hand over the requested documents, however as of the time of this writing there has been no resolution to the petition.
We also reached out to the Florida Condo Ombudsman to provide us with an election monitor, to ensure that any elections are conducted fairly (albeit even though they are rarely held and we have no chance of winning). We plan out reaching out again soon to the Ombudsman for help with additional matters.
To combat the short-term rentals we started handing out business cards, with a message urging the renters to scan the QR code on the back. This QR code would lead them to a web page where we briefly explained our situation, and offered cash rewards for them providing a digital receipt for their stay here. The goal here was to gather enough evidence for the city of Orlando to take action. We also reached out to the Airbnb Community Support Team to notify them of these infractions.
After providing adequate evidence, the city of Orlando's code enforcement officers were finally able to step in and force the Ansari brothers, along with Dustin Nero, to take down most of the airbnb.com and vrbo.com listings. It was a huge relief when we started seeing the code enforcement signs posted outside our building. However that didn't last very long, as not even a couple weeks later the listings started popping back up again. It's starting to feel like we're playing a game of "Whac-A-Mole" here.
One resident decided to reach out to Representative Anna V. Eskamani from the Florida House of Representatives, who has been gracious enough to offer assistance, and thus far her office has been lending help when and where they can. Other residents have sent complaints to the Florida State Attorney, FBI, IRS, and the Office of the Inspector General - to see if any of those agencies can step in and somehow help out as well.
We've also tried reaching out to our property management company, FirstService Residential, but to date they have not stepped in to intervene nor offer any assistance.
Additionally, we've also reached out to local media outlets who have been very supportive to our cause. If you have time, please check out the Orlando Sentinel Article and WFTV story which both describe our situation here.
Our Ansari-led board attempted to pass a nonsensical budget for 2023, one which would cause some to start paying up to $2,200 per month in association fees. Fortunately, the residents were able to shoot the aforementioned budget down. This was a small victory for our community, but it was made perfectly clear that our board was still determined to exert their control over the condominium and its residents.
We're left to wonder what other questionable decisions the board may try to push through in the future, and are also concerned about our ability to effectively defend against such actions.
Show me more details!
In November of 2022 the board attempted to hold a budget meeting to increase our monthly dues, again. Starting in 2023, residents would now be facing up to $2,200 per month in association-related fees! The Ansari-led board's justification for this increase was that they (a) needed to make up for their overspending of operating funds on items that were outside of the 2022 budget, and (b) deciding that they wanted to remodel the front of the building. The former is not the residents' fault, and the latter is definitely not what we want. Especially since we suspected that it was simply to impress their Airbnb guests.
Additionally, the proposed 2023 budget had some questionable items on it. Specifically:
- Our "Elevator Maintenance" budget increased from $0 per year to $6,174 per year.
- Our "HVAC Parts and Repairs" budget increased from $500 per year to $5,324 per year.
- Our "Custodial Supplies" budget increased from $4,800 per year to $7,172 per year (note that we suspect these supplies are being used to clean Airbnb units).
- Our "Door Maintenance" budget increased from $500 per year to $8,258 per year.
- Our "Doorman" budget increased from $133,000 per year to $210,000 per year.
- Our "Landscaping" budget (i.e. for remodeling the front of the building) increased from $1,452 per year to $120,000 per year.
Overall our total expenses would have more than doubled in 2023 from $423,001 per year to $946,912 per year. Because of this, we decided to send out a formal letter of protest regarding the proposed budget. Luckily this seems to have made an impact as the board canceled the meeting... And by "canceled" we mean they simply didn't show up.
The board held a meeting the following week, and motioned to continue with the remodeling of the front of the building despite the fact that there was no budget increase for it. They stated they were going to fund this unnecessary expense using our reserve funds, the very same funds they stated were low and necessitated the passing of the special assessment.
To make matters even worse, they are now planning to add a gym and a pool! At this rate we'll never replenish our reserves, and forever be forced to pay extremely high monthly fees to the association.
Let the Lawsuit Battles Begin
We are preparing to file a civil lawsuit against our board of directors in order to challenge their mismanagement and abuse of power. Meanwhile, Nabeel Ansari has decided to file a defamation lawsuit against the maintainer of this website (which would be yours truly). Please note that our goal is to stick to the facts here, and not embellish anything.
This legal maneuver appears to be a clear attempt by a board member to both intimidate and silence any residents who speak out against their actions. It's also a cynical move, providing yet another example of their willingness to go to great lengths to hold onto power.
Show me more details!
We had already started digging more into the details and history of our board members, but the defamation lawsuit filed by the board president (Nabeel Ansari) has encouraged even more intense scrutiny. Since the Ansari family claims to be "investors" running a "business" here at the Jackson - it's only fair to see what their track record is in regards to their previous business ventures.
We've since discovered that the Ansari family is an... interesting one. They own quite a few businesses, the most well-known being Cicis Pizza. They've also had multiple lawsuits filed against them, including one from Disney where they were accused of selling fake park tickets.
Another interesting example is Nabeel Ansari's applying for and receiving $3.5 million dollars in PPP funding for his Cicis Pizza franchise. We've been wondering there they might have acquired the capital required to buy so many units here at The Jackson, and while obviously we cannot in good faith state this is how they did - it does naturally raise some eyebrows. Additionally, it's also plausible that this loan was used for multiple franchise locations, however there's only one location listed on the Federal Pay website.
This was estimated to have "saved 319 jobs" for a total payroll of "7.2 million dollars" in 2020, and "saved 237 jobs" for a total payroll of "9.6 million dollars" in 2021. This obviously doesn't quite... add up. The breakdown on the Federal Pay website speaks for itself:
Another example, this one particularly unethical and exploitative, involves this gas station they own, where they are shamelessly price gouging Orlando residents and visitors. We need not say more, as the Google reviews, Yelp reviews, and Facebook reviews speak for themselves:
... They received so many complaints in fact, that they were forced to debrand from a "Shell" gas station, to a "US Petrol" gas station.
Another example is drdisabled.com, where they are apparently scamming handicap people. Once again, don't take our word for it, the reviews speak for themselves:
Yet another example is a company they own (or at least used to own) called MOOSH, where they apparently scammed owners of emotional support animals. They were reportedly charging to send out fake ESA letters.
Another interesting example is their failure to repay back loans. For example, take their failure to repay a loan from American Express, which resulted in a court-ordered judgment for damages in the amount of $289,662.20, as well as their failure to repay a loan to Mr. Peter Wiest, leading to a final judgment of $9,169,918.45.
Yet another interesting example is some of the expenditures made using association funds. Nabeel Ansari has purchased and received reimbursement for buying food not once, not twice, but at least three times.
Note that our general ledger shows 48 payments made directly to Nabeel Ansari, and these findings are from just the receipts we received for only 5 of those payments. It wouldn't be surprising to find out that this was just the tip of the iceberg - should we ever get them to cough up the remaining receipts.
We are gearing up to file a lawsuit of our own against the board of directors, as we feel that we have no other choice at this point. It will be expensive, it will time-consuming, and it will be stressful... but we can't just give up and let them roll all over us.
On March 24, 2023, the board successfully passed a motion to levy another $500,000 special assessment, due within 30 days (which comes out to around a $7,000 - $13,000 charge per owner), to purchase a unit owned by Donna Nero, the mother of Dustin Nero (a former board member), in order to convert it into a gym that none of us want.
To make matters worse, two days before this motion, the board put all of their units up for sale. This obviously greatly concerns us, as we're forced to immediately fork over thousands of dollars to a board that we're worried may potentially leave their positions afterwards and exit The Jackson.
Not to mention we still haven't even finished paying the previous $1.3 million dollar special assessment yet. We've officially reached peak insanity... We honestly couldn't make this stuff up if we tried.
Show me more details!
On March 9th, 2023, our Board sent out a notice about an upcoming board meeting where they planned to levy another special assessment for $500,000.
We were of course both frustrated and worried at first, but quickly relieved when we found out they couldn't pass it. This was because all of the board members except Nabeel and Faisal Ansari had stepped down by now. Since there were five board positions and only two were filled - they would not have "quorum" - i.e. a majority needed to pass any motions, including this special assessment.
Our relief was short-lived however, as three days before the board meeting where the special assessment vote would take place, the board appointed a new member...
Contrary to the previously-emailed notice for the special assessment meeting - we did not receive any emails for this one. We only (luckly) found out since we saw a notice for it in the downstairs lobby. By only posting a physical notice a few days before the meeting was to take place, we suspected that they did not want us to know about the meeting, let alone to show up and record the entire thing.
The newly appointed board member, named "Nayda Estevez", was not present for her own appointment. Additionally, none of us had ever heard about her before, as she doesn't live in the building nor own any units here. According to the board, she's works for one of their many LLCs. We tried looking up the LLC they claimed she worked for, but could not find any evidence of her being an authorized representative of said LLC, nor did the Board bother to provide any evidence in support thereof.
The next day, on March 22nd, aka two days before the motion to pass a new special assessment, the board put all of their units up for sale. This obviously both greatly concerns and worries us, as we're going to be forced to immediately fork over thousands of dollars to a board that may potentially exit The Jackson soon.
Two days later, on March 24th, the board successfully passed the motion to levy a new $500,000 special assessment, due within 30 days (which comes out to around a 7 - 13k charge per owner), to purchase a unit owned by Donna Nero, the mother of Dustin Nero (a former board member), in order to convert it into a gym that nobody wants.
To add insult to injury, the board did not allow any comments or questions until after they voted. Not only that, but they also motioned to seek a $500,000 loan on top of the $500,000 special assessment, without bothering to explain why beforehand.
Our worries were evern further compounded by the fact that the previous $1.3 million dollar special assessment was not being used for its intended purpose... The board stated that it was needed to "replenish our reserves", but they kept withdrawing funds from our reserve account afterwards, to use on unnecessary spending such as remodeling the lobby. So how can we be sure this one won't end up with the same fate?
It's interesting to note that Dustin Nero previously sent a Cease and Desist letter in regards to this website. In that letter he finds issue with being portrayed as "working in tandem with the Ansaris" (amongst other complaints), which is honestly getting harder to believe, given the above.
The silver lining is that luckily WFTV Channel 9 news was present to record the entire thing... So a very, very interesting segment about this should be airing soon.
Into the Unknown
At times we've felt like we've been left out to dry by our association attorney, Sarah Webner, as well as our property management company, FirstService Residential. However the outpouring of support from our surrounding community, local media, and local politicans, has definitely encouraged us to keep fighting and not give up.
We did not ask for any of these problems, we simply want to be able to live our lives in peace. If anything, let this be a cautionary tale to others. Florida law grants too much power to Condominium Associations - so we all need to be extra vigilant and pay close attention to who we allow onto our board of directors.
Though the ending of our story has yet to be written, we are hoping that it is a happy one.
Show me more details!
Believe it or not this is only the tip of the iceberg. There are literally dozens of additional complaints, incidents, evidence of suspicious activity, etc etc - that aren't listed here for the sake of brevity. In order to help keep the story interesting, and keep you (the reader) engaged, this website only contains some of the more egregious examples.
We're trying to raise awareness about our situation in order to hopefully attract more outside assistance. Assistance that might be able to help us pressure the Ansari brothers into finally stepping down from the board, and abandoning their plans for a hostile condo takeover. The ending to our story is unknown and has yet to be written, but our fingers are crossed that the ending is a positive one, where we finally get to live in peace.
