AG Gansler Files Suit Against Anne Arundel Co. Sports Uniform Company
Sports55, Inc. alleged to have taken thousands of dollars from consumers for custom uniforms that were not provided as promised

Baltimore, MD (June 11, 2014) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that his Consumer Protection Division has filed suit against Anne Arundel County-based sports uniform manufacturers, Sports55, Inc., Teamuniforms123, LLC, and Dyesubsports, LLC, and the companies' two owners, Kelly Burke and John Eberl (collectively referred to as "Sports55"). The charges allege 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.

The charges filed by the Consumer Protection Division accuse Sports55 of taking advance payments from consumers for athletic uniforms that Sports55 either failed to provide, provided significantly later than promised, or that 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, even for orders that were unfulfilled, unreasonably late, incomplete or incorrect.

The charges seek restitution for consumers harmed by Sports55's practices. A hearing on the Statement of Charges is scheduled for October 1, 2014 at the Office of Administrative Hearings, 11101 Gilroy Road, Hunt Valley, MD 21031. Consumers with complaints against Sports55, Inc., Teamuniforms123, LLC, Dyesubsports, LLC, Kelly Burke, or John Eberl may call the Consumer Protection Division at 410-576-6569; or write to 200 St. Paul Place, 16th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202; or file a complaint online at http://www.oag.state.md.us/Consumer/complaint.htm.
