The office’s Consumer Protection Division alleges that Sports55 either failed to deliver the custom sports uniforms consumers ordered, or failed to deliver them in a timely manner and refused to refund consumers’ payments.
Investigators allege Sports55 took advance payments from consumers for athletic uniforms that Sports55 either failed to provide, provided significantly later than promised, or did not conform to what the consumer ordered.
Consumers who were dissatisfied with their orders could not get their money back due to the companies’ previously undisclosed policy of not offering refunds.
Authorities are seeking restitution for these customers.
A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 1 in Hunt Valley.
Sports55 has had a long history of consumer complaints, with numerous complaints filed with the Attorney General's Office and the Better Business Bureau of Greater Maryland. Last December, the company changed its name to TeamUniforms123 .
