Gearing up to cheer on your favorite team to
Super Bowl LIII? Be sure that you’re buying legit NFL-branded merchandise. At
least one online business is being accused of selling the phony stuff.
The Better Business Bureau Northwest + Pacific
is processing dozens of complaints against Sports Fans Goods. Consumers say
they purchased NFL gear through the website www.sportfansgoods.com but ended
up with cheaply made imitations instead. Or, in some cases, nothing at all.
The business claims to be based out of Moro, Oregon but is not
registered with the Secretary of State. Sports Fans Goods has yet to answer
communications from the BBB regarding these complaints.
For this reason, the BBB is issuing a consumer alert
against this company.
Remember, we’re here to help you be an educated consumer. Always visit
before doing business with an online retailer. Checkout their BBB profile for
complaints and reviews.
