State of Colorado v. County Line Vacuum & Appliance, Inc. DBA AAAA Television Electronic Vacuum & Appliance and Muhammed Murib, and Omar Murib, Individually.
On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman filed a civil lawsuit and a Motion for Temporary Restraining Order, Preliminary Injunction and Asset Freeze against Centennial-based electronics repair store, County Line Vacuum & Appliance dba AAAA Television Electronics Vacuum & Appliance (“AAAA TEVA”), owner Muhammed Murib and sales manager Omar Murib. After a brief hearing, Arapahoe County District Court Judge Christopher C. Cross issued an Order granting the Temporary Restraining Order and Asset Freeze. On January 26th, 2016, a Preliminary Injunction was ordered against the Defendant's.
The Order requires the Defendants to immediately cease all repairs and repair-related advertising. The Attorney General’s lawsuit alleges that AAAA TEVA grossed over $2 million dollars in 2014 through deceptive advertising and deceptive trade tactics. The lawsuit’s allegations include details of the Attorney General’s investigation which showed that the Defendants’ advertisements for “In-Home TV Repair” were the first result which appeared in response to Google searches for “tv repair” and similar search terms. Regarding Defendants’ “In-Home TV Repair” service, the lawsuit alleges that Defendants send untrained employees, posing as repairmen, into consumers’ homes for the sole purpose of getting consumers’ televisions back to their shop. The lawsuit alleges that once Defendants have consumers’ television or other electronic item in their shop, they claim that extensive repairs are necessary in order to charge exorbitant prices. The lawsuit alleges deceptive advertising as to all repair services offered by AAAA TEVA, including the Defendants’ advertisements for cracked television screen repair, projector repair, sewing machine and vacuum repair.
