Greenfield, Massachusetts – Attorney general sues Greenfield Granite

Greenfield, Massachusetts –

The number of complaints made to police about Greenfield Granite has grown to 70 in the two weeks since the death of the firm’s owner, Amie Strohl.

GREENFIELD — The Indiana attorney general has sued Greenfield Granite in the wake of dozens of complaints from customers who said they paid for grave markers that never were delivered.

The civil action against the company seeks consumer restitution and costs under the Indiana Deceptive Consumer Sales Act. The lawsuit, filed Friday, comes as an increasing number of complaints have been filed. The Greenfield Police Department now is investigating 70 complaints against the company.

Attorney General Curtis Hill also filed a request for a preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order aimed at preventing the company from removing, selling or transferring assets until the legal process plays out. Recently, police officers have observed individuals at the business turning away customers while workers appear to be removing items from the business, the attorney general’s office said in a news release and in its filing.

“We have laws in place to protect Hoosiers when businesses abandon their obligations to customers,” Hill said. “In this case, we want to ensure that any consumers harmed by this company’s business practices receive refunds or, if they prefer, have their orders fulfilled if products remain available.”

The attorney general’s office recommended that consumers who have complaints regarding Greenfield Granite should file a consumer complaint online at https://www.in.gov/ attorneygeneral/ or call the Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-382-5516.
