It's been quite some time since I've written anything about Captain's Cove but I recently received another call of yet another scam in that location.
Back in the 1970's they sold building lots there to people who planned on retiring there one day. For many years while the lots remained empty they were subjected to pay a minimal fee, (something like $40.00) a year for a homeowners association fee.
Today that fee is now $900.00 a year. Now we all know expenses have gone up and I'm cool with that. HOWEVER, there are some people who bought lots only to find out the state will NOT allow them to build on those lots as they are considered wetlands.
This particular individual is in their 80's and have been bullied for the past few years by the association to pay their fees. Now they are going so far as to sending these vulnerable people to collection agencies, even though they cannot build on their lot and were sold swamp land in Virginia.
The States Attorney's Office in Accomac Virginia refuse to hear their plea for help, even though this Family have tried to simply GIVE their lot back to the County/Development for FREE.
Now they are receiving certified letters and constant calls from collection people. WHEN is our Federal Government going to start protecting the elderly? In my opinion this is FRAUD and if Captain's Cover had any decency they'd allow ALL of the people who's property has been eliminated from any structure on that property to be relieved of the land and or responsibility towards any association fees.
We will try to keep you posted of their progress as they will now hire an attorney and sue them since purchasing the land in the 1970's and have paid these fees since then.
