Alleged Oregon Business Found Selling Fake NFL Merchandise - 01/15/19

                                             Better Business Bureau Northwest + Pacific Issues Alert

PORTLAND, Oregon – As we approach NFL Championship Sunday, the Better Business Bureau Northwest + Pacific is issuing an alert against the alleged Oregon business, Sports Fans Goods.

Consumers complain the company offers NFL-branded merchandise through its website www.sportsfansgoods.com but instead delivers phony imitations. In some instances, the goods are never received.

The business claims to be based out of Moro, Oregon but is not registered with the Secretary of State. Sports Fans Goods has yet to answer communications from the BBB regarding these complaints.

“This is a good reminder to always research retailers before you buy,” says Dawn Johnson, BBB marketplace manager. “Read online reviews and visit their BBB profile.”

If you’re a victim of this scheme, please let us know. File a report at www.bbb.org/ScamTracker.

No Comfort in Oregon Quilt Scheme - 12/18/18

                                            Hundreds of Consumers Complain to BBB After Being Scammed out of Money

Portland, Oregon – A phony business operating under the name Amelia Cotton Quilt Company and a Salem, Oregon address is scamming consumers across the country this holiday season.

BBB Northwest + Pacific is processing hundreds of complaints from people who say they paid for quilts but have yet to receive them. Most of the complainants’ report purchasing through a Facebook ad that directs them to the website www.Ameliacotton10.com. Amelia Cotton Quilt Company is not registered with the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office and its business address is a private residence in Salem.

BBB is giving Amelia Cotton Quilt Company an ‘F’ rating and issuing a Scam Alert after it failed to respond to multiple inquiries by investigators and consumers left with one less gift to give this holiday.

“Remember, purchasing with a credit card can give you more protection against fake businesses that don’t deliver,” says Dawn Johnson, Marketplace Manager. “And, always check out retailers at bbb.org before you shop.”

Amelia Cotton Quilt Company is believed to now be using the website www.sleepious.co. Other names and websites to watch out for are:
