July 12th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh announced that his Consumer Protection Division has reached a settlement of the civil charges against Christopher Engel, Karol Engel, Matthew Dihel, MOCHA Furniture Limited Liability Company, Urbana custom décor Limited Liability Company, and Farmstead Custom Furniture LLC, who were, collectively, charged with violating the Consumer Protection Act for collecting deposits and other monies from consumers to build custom furniture, and then failing to either provide consumers their ordered goods or to refund their money.  The companies were also accused of going out of business to avoid repaying consumers, only to reopen under new names.
