AG Griffin is suing a Benton based company for allegedly defrauding a woman
Little Rock, Arkansas – Attorney General Tim Griffin of Arkansas filed a complaint against Hourglass Vixens LLC on Tuesday, charging them with operating illegally and defrauding Arkansans of their money.
A woman has now responded, claiming that the business exploited her personally.
When Marquita Gilmore came at work, an Hourglass Vixen colleague abruptly claimed that she was running late. Gilmore was subsequently charged with being 15 minutes late, according to Gilmore.
“It was a Mother’s Day Special that I booked. The idea of the service is to lose inches… I was getting ready to go on vacation so I was like thinking that it will be a good time to just go ahead and lose some inches,” Gilmore said.
Gilmore claimed that due of the employee’s timing issues, she never actually received that service.
“She charged me I think the entire $110 left,” Gilmore said.
In addition, the lawsuit asserts that Hourglass Vixens provided other services without a license, including lip fillers, breast lifts, stomach tucks, liposuctions, and teeth whitening.
Gilmore claimed that after being conned, she went online and began to see that other people had experienced the same problems.
“I got on Facebook, and I started going through her stuff, and I was just like, ‘Maybe I should have done my research before I booked this,’” she said.
Gilmore informed us that her bank had returned the money to her; she is only hoping that the company’s owner will learn a lesson as a result of this litigation.
“It seemed like it is an ongoing thing with her like she do not care if she provides services or not, she just taking the money and running,” Gilmore said.
Even if Hourglass Vixen’s building is no longer standing and is no longer advertised online, their Facebook page is still open.
