Foremost Furniture Informative - Dishonest Practices - Furniture
NEW YORK -- I have been victimized by Foremost Furniture too. I like many of you out there purchased furniture from Foremost Furniture in NYC .That was in August of 2006. At the time i left them nearly $8,000 in a deposit for the furniture I ordered. In October they called to say that part of the order was in but that they would need an additional $4000 so that the deposit on the furniture not ready as yet would remain at 50%. After many months and countless call and fabricated stories from the staff at the store, Foremost went out of business and I like many of you are out my deposit. I called the BBB, contacted the Department of Consumer affairs , the District Attorney's Office and the law firm that is representing Bob Starr, the owner and "chief thief" at Foremost. I also filed a complaint at small claims court where I did win a judgment for 5000 dollars plus interest and court fees. I have sent this judgment to the lawyer representing Foremost and am waiting to see what he has to say. Thus far the only offer for any money to be returned to me and other creditors is 10% of the deposit they got from us.
Isn't it something when the victim is treated like the guilty party and the guilty party is so insulated from prosecution for his crime!
