Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman Receives Court Order Prohibiting Deceptive Repair Company from Preying on Coloradans
DENVER – Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman wins a court order prohibiting AAAA Television Electronics Vacuum and Appliance (“AAAA TEVA,) its owner Muhammed Murib, and sales manager Omar Murib, from conducting any further repair business, including the advertising of any repair services, pending a trial on the Attorney General’s November 2015 Complaint against these Defendants.
In his ruling, Arapahoe County District Court Judge Christopher C. Cross stated that it was in the “public interest” to shut down AAAA TEVA until trial. According to the Court, the Attorney General’s Office has shown a “reasonable probability of success” in its allegation that Defendants routinely charged for repairs they had not actually performed.
The Attorney General’s lawsuit alleges that AAAA TEVA grossed over $2 million dollars in 2014 alone through deceptive advertising and deceptive trade tactics. According to the Attorney General’s Complaint, thousands of consumers from the Denver Metro area and along the Front Range have been charged for repairs that were not actually performed. In addition to individual consumers, schools, churches, fire departments and municipalities were also victimized by the Defendants’ tactics.
