DENVER (Legal Newsline) —Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman has announced that County Line Vacuum & Appliance, which does business as AAAA Television Electronics Vacuum & Appliance (AAAA TEVA), along with owner Muhammed Murib and sales manager Omar Murib, will be banned from performing electronics repairs after allegations of taking advantage of consumers.
The Muribs will also pay the state $400,000, as well as surrender three company vans worth roughly $90,000. Coffman’s office alleged the defendants charged consumers for repairs never performed. The defendants purportedly ran a scheme in which they would send untrained employees to consumers’ homes, take their televisions back to the office and then claim the home needed extensive repairs. The defendants would then allegedly charge exorbitant prices and rarely actually complete repairs.
“The defendants took advantage of innocent consumers and defrauded them out of thousands of dollars for services that were never performed,” Coffman said. “My office has no tolerance for companies who steal people’s hard-earned money. These bad actors are permanently banned from the electronics repair business and Colorado consumers are safer as a result.”
