It should be the outrage of San Francisco.
San Francisco landlords are evicting tenants fraudulently, and reports say these fake-out evictions may number in the hundreds. Landlords claim they will move in themselves or move in a relative, but in reality, the mothers, brothers or whomever never even pick out new curtains.
