OLYMPIA – Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens and Sen. Brian Hatfield, D-Raymond, today released
SEATTLE – All they wanted was to start an online business. But many Washington residents who agreed to pay thousands of dollars to a company called StoresOnline claim they were suckered.
“StoresOnline made it seem that their software was so easy to use that anyone could start an online company overnight and be successful – even someone who didn’t own a computer or knew nada about the Internet,” Attorney General Rob McKenna said. “Naturally, that wasn’t the case for many customers who were encouraged to pay more and more.”
After accusing the company of deceptive sales practices, the Washington Attorney General’s Office today announced an agreement that provides refunds for StoresOnline customers, who include many elderly and people on limited incomes.
