Um… that really, really stinks! Is there any way you can take it to court? That’s ridicuous!

Call your state’s attorney general’s office now. You might want to talk to the police and also talk to the Better Business Bureau.

Good luck!

Oh my goodness!  That’s terrible!  Hopefully there is some way you can get your money back.

Oh man, that SUCKS!!!!! I’m so sorry, I hope it wasn’t a large amount of money! What jerks (I would use a stronger word but I should probably keep this post clean) to just run off with your cash! Again, I’m sorry and thanks for warning the rest of us, hopefully at least save some other brides your hassle, frustration and money loss… HUGS!

What’s the name of the company? I did linen rentals online from another state and had no problems,but it would be good to know to file away.

That’s so horrible.  I hope you can find a way to get this resolved and get the word out to everyone so you can find out if you aren’t the only one.

I am so sorry this has happened to you…I hope that the deposit wasn’t too high and that your loss wasn’t too great.  There is a positive that you found out now rather than a few weeks prior to your wedding.  I hope there is some way you can reslove this and get your money back!

 file a report because the “company” isn’t in my county.

Can you file a report in the county of the company? That’s technically where the crime was committed

Contact your bank and explain the situation. You should be able to file a fraud claim and they will do their own invesitgation (such as contacting the owner of the account it was deposited to).

I once had something like this happen and reported it to my bank. The bank was able to track the person down and actually speak to them. My money was returned to my account in less than a week.

HTH!!!
