Letter to the Editor re: Rudy Trebels Claiming CLP

Rudy Trebels (not a CLP, but still claims such) & Friends

“Why does he claim he is still a CLP on LinkedIn, if he is not? Or are the CLP’s a bunch of phony’s? ”

Richard Kelly

(Well, Trebels has changed some of it, now states is past member and not a present member of leasing associations. But yes, he still states being a Certified Lease Professional although CLPfoundation.org does not list him as a “member in good standing.”

(I can’t say all the CLP’s are phony, but perhaps those still on the Trebels LinkedIn have the answers to your question: (identification by Leasing News in italics and CLP in bold and any who would like to respond, will definitely quote you, please don’t bring up “alleged,” as please see all the Leasing News Bulletin Board Complaints and creditors of IF Credit in BK and other law suits :)
