We told you yesterday about the online merchant Accessory Outlet, which demanded $250 from a consumer and told her she was "playing games with the wrong people" after the consumer said she would contact her credit card company about a transaction with Accessory Outlet.
Now, Consumerist has compiled some additional, telling information — turns out, apparent endorsements from Angie's List, the Better Business Bureau and others on the company's website are false. Read the whole story here.
(Update Aug. 29: now it appears that both the company's original site, http://www.accessoryoutletmall.com, and the site to which it moved earlier this week, http://www.onlineaccessoryoutlet.com, are down; identical messages at each note that they are "undergoing maintainance." Will be interesting to see if the terms change when the sites are restored.)
