Saw this on WDTV - does anyone know anything about him? I think this is the same slimeball who screwed my buddy out of money!

"A Fairmont man is accused of writing 50 thousand dollars worth of bad checks to try to buy some property.

Police say Robert Wise used at least three different personal bank accounts and a business account to make the payments.

The woman who was selling the property to Wise told police each time she tried to cash a check, she was informed there were insufficient funds and the checks were fraudulent.

Wise is in jail on a 60 thousand dollar cash only bond.

Yeah I know him, he is crooked as they get. He is married to Althea Wise. She is a realtor. I never got my deposit back from when I rented from him, even though the place was spotless when I moved out.

REALLY?! That is a bummer!! What about the wife - I hope she's not as crooked as he is, being a realtor?!

Apparently he has scammed a lot of people. He was actually on Dateline hidden camera for conning people into buying expensive water treatment systems and not delivering... What a piece of work he must be! I hope he gets what's coming to him!

I used to rent from Bob wise. He is probably the most crappy landlord there is. When I toured the apartment he swore the things I pointed out would have be fixed/cleaned before I moved in. When I moved in the carpet was horrible still, the toilet and oven were still broken, the fridge still had rotten food in it, and the lights in the stair way didn't work. I called weekly about all of it and it took him two months to finally fix the toilet, three months to fix the oven, and he never did anything about the carpet or the lights in the stairway. At night I would use a flashlight to climb the stairs. Also his "repairman" he sent to fix my oven was an excon druggy that had a key to my apartment YAY! I lived there for six months until I found a new place and while I was there I cleaned the entire place from top to bottom, paid for the carpets to be cleaned myself and when I moved out he didn't give me my deposit back either. NEVER RENT FROM THIS GUY HE IS THE BIGGEST CON MAN AROUND!!!

This link shows the name in the Dateline investigation as Ed Wise. Was that an alias?

This landlord doesn't repair anything that is wrong. My son and his family are current renters trying to get out. Numerous things wrong with their apartment. Front door doesn't close properly, linoleum coming up everywhere it's installed, no locks on windows, electric outlets that are not grounded. These are just some of the issues. Now black mold has been found. I am moving them back to my home because I refuse to have my grandchild around mold! Also will be reporting it to the health department because if it's in their apartment, I'm sure it will be found in some of the others in the building as well.
