SALEM, OR (KPTV) - Officials are warning people to watch out for a phony business they say is scamming consumers across the country.

The phony business in Salem is operating under the name of Amelia Cotton Quilt Company, according to Better Business Bureau Northwest + Pacific.

The bureau says it has received hundreds of complaints from consumers who say they’ve paid for quilts but have yet to receive them. According to the bureau, most of the complainants say they made their purchase through a Facebook ad that redirected them to the fake company’s website.

The BBB is giving Amelia Cotton Quilt Company an "F” rating and says it is issuing a Scam Alert after its owners failed to respond to multiple inquires by investigators and consumers.

Bureau officials say Amelia Cotton Quilt Company is not registered with the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office; its business address is a private residence in Salem.

According to the BBB, Amelia Cotton Quilt Company is now believed to be using the website www.sleepious.co.

Other names and websites to watch out for according to the BBB include:

The BBB says anyone who is a victim of this should contact them and file a report on their website.
