WV AG FILES SUIT: RANDY BOGGESS/ RANDY'S STEREO
ATTORNEY GENERAL DARRELL V. McGRAW, JR.
FILES SUIT AGAINST RANDY BOGGESS AND
RANDY'S STEREO OUTLET FOR SELLING STEREO EQUIPMENT
OVER THE INTERNET AND FAILING TO DELIVER THE GOODS
Attorney General Darrell V. McGraw, Jr., today sued Randy Boggess, d/b/a Randy’s Stereo Outlet, a stereo equipment dealer located in St. Albans, West Virginia. Attorney General McGraw alleges that Mr. Boggess sold stereo equipment to consumers over the Internet and the telephone and failed to deliver the merchandise.
Some consumers paid for stereo equipment and either received equipment inferior to what they paid for or did not receive any merchandise at all. Attorney General McGraw’s Consumer Protection Division has received consumer complaints from at least 30 irate consumers who purchased stereo equipment from Randy Boggess. One of the consumers, David Palmer of New Jersey, was so angry with Boggess that he created a webpage, www.monkeyfreak.com, that identifies Boggess’s latest scams.
“It is just outrageous that someone would take a consumer’s hard earned money and not provide them with the merchandise they ordered,” said Attorney General McGraw.
Attorney General McGraw seeks to halt Mr. Boggess’s business in West Virginia and seeks civil penalties in the amount of $5,000 for each violation of the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act. Attorney General McGraw also is asking the court to order Mr. Boggess to repay all aggrieved consumers.
Attorney General McGraw urges all consumers who paid Mr. Boggess for stereo equipment they have not received to contact his Consumer Protection Division at (304) 558-8986, 1-800-368-8808.
