’90 Day Fiancé: Elizabeth’s Father Chuck Has Numerous Fraud Complaints Against His Company

Andrei and Elizabeth Castravet are currently playing defense on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After. Now in Moldova, Elizabeth’s dad, Chuck Potthast, and her brother, Charlie, are relentlessly questioning Andrei about his past. But after fans uncovered consumer complaints about Chuck’s business, they think he has no right to judge Andrei.

Andrei doesn’t get along with Elizabeth’s family

Andrei has been at odds with Elizabeth’s family since the very beginning of their 90 Day Fiancé journey. His father-in-law, Chuck, has been grilling Andrei to get a job, and has also offered Andrei work at his own company. But after their daughter Eleanor was born, Andrei ended up staying home to raise her while Elizabeth went to work.

Andrei’s relationship with Elizabeth’s entire family has been tense. “Elizabeth’s family don’t understand any boundaries, and they’re always in my business,” Andrei says on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After. “My relationship with Elizabeth’s family is nonexistent.”

Her family is coming to Moldova for the wedding, but they’ve been critical from the start. Elizabeth’s sisters aren’t thrilled about visiting Andrei’s home country, and they went so far as to call it dirty and unsafe.

When Chuck and Charlie arrive in Moldova, they start out by insulting the airport and the country. Then, on the ride back to Andrei’s parents’ house, they start interrogating Andrei about his work history and past. 

Andrei tells them that he was a cop in Chisinau for a year, but that he moved to Ireland after running into some issues. They begin pushing him to reveal what issues he had, but Andrei refuses to answer. 

“You know, maybe it’s me being an overprotective dad,” Chuck says on the show. “But, what I found a little strange was why he would leave a nice career and move to a foreign country. There’s a lot of red flags there.”

Fans uncover complaints about Chuck’s business

After hearing Chuck and Charlie grill Andrei about his past, fans started doing some digging of their own. Some Reddit sleuths found a Better Business Bureau page for Chuck’s business, CDC Capital Investments LLC, that highlighted complaints about his company. 

One complaint alleged that the company put them in a rental property that was actually foreclosed. When the property was sold, the complainant claims that they were abruptly evicted and were never refunded for their deposits. Yelp has similar complaints against the company, with one reviewer calling Chuck a “slumlord.”

Chuck’s company has not responded to the complaints. But if the allegations prove true, it will make Elizabeth’s family’s tirade against Andrei look even less warranted.
