DA going after bogus stereo speaker sales

August 2, 2010

The Johnson County District Attorney’s Office wants to squelch a possible problem involving transient companies or individuals selling stereo speakers in the county.

District Attorney Stephen M. Howe said in a news release he was looking for any consumer that may have purchased stereo speakers from the back of vans or trucks in the area over the past week.

Howe said the sales pitch is that the speakers are of a high-end quality and overages from upscale restaurant remodels that must be sold at a reduction of cost from the original price.

In the past, the stereo speakers that have been known to be sold are the Audio File Home Theater, Series 830 LR, Digital Audio Professional Speaker Systems, 7.1 Cinema Series II and the Audio File Home Theater Pro Cinema HT 2006 Home Theater System. The outside of stereo speaker boxes indicated a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,999.00 to $3,999.00, when their value and quality are significantly less than indicated.

Anyone who has recently purchased stereo speakers from transient companies within the metro area is asked to contact the Johnson County District Attorney’s Consumer Hotline at (913) 715-3003.
