BUFFALO, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) — New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced a lawsuit Dec. 6 against Buffalomusic producer Cody Conway and his company Buffalove Music Festival LLC for allegedly defrauding music festival consumers out of more than $14,000.
Conway promoted the Buffalove Music Festival 2017 that was set to take place July 20 to July 23 in Franklinville, New York. According to Schneiderman’s office, Conway canceled the festival just weeks before it was to take place. Furthermore, he allegedly failed to refund consumers who had purchased tickets.
"New Yorkers should get what they pay for – and they’re entitled to timely refunds if event organizers don’t follow through on their promises," Schneiderman said. "My office won't tolerate scammers who trick hardworking consumers into forking over cash for performances they'll never see."
Handling the case for New York were assistant attorney general James M. Morrissey and investigator Erica Law. Assistant attorney general in charge Michael Russo heads up the Buffalo Regional Office, which is part of the division of regional offices led by executive deputy attorney general for regional affairs Marty Mack.
