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:
|Weirdo Stuff||Kathleen Quilt||Ducha|
|Emacotton||Amelia Quilt||Amelia Cotton|
|Ecrafta||EMA Cotton||Elsie Quilt|
|Uscrafta||Cotton Blanket||Elsie May Quilt|
|USA Crafta||ARA Cotton|
