Bad Landlord Alert: 9330 SE 47th Street, Mercer Island, WA BEWARE of RIP OFF Scheme

Cheryl Marshall, 9330 SE 47th St, Mercer Island, WA  98040 stole my deposit.
Cheryl Marshall, wife of Mark Mills who apparently works as an engineer at Boeing, has been illegally renting rooms in their house on Mercer Island Washington, which is against zoning code.  The address of this boarding house is 9330 SE 47th Street, Mercer Island, WA  98040.  

She has illegally taken and kept a $600 cash deposit from me on a room - and then I said that I forfeited it less than two days later because she did not approve my application - and in fact never bothered to respond to my emails until I threatened legal action.

She has refused to refund my deposit, but is no longer advertising the room for rent.  Perhaps she rented it to someone else? Or maybe she is scared that the City will be researching her illegal activity?  I'm sure that I am not the first person she has stolen a deposit from, but I am hoping to be the last, as I am tirelessly working to warn everyone who cares to look up their address.

Besides pending legal action, the City of Mercer Island needs to take action against Ms. Marshall, to protect the integrity of their single family neighborhoods.  She apparently is renting out 4 different rooms to individuals, causing more traffic and noise in the otherwise quiet neighborhood.
