Coakley sues Seekonk chrome business

Posted 2/17/14

NEW BEDFORD – Attorney General Martha Coakley has sued a chrome business located in Seekonk for collecting payment for services they did not provide after the firm allegedly solicited consumers with promises of metal-restoration services for rare and antique automobiles.

Coakley said her office filed a complaint against Nu-Chrome LLC and its managers – Donald Kemp of Marion, Mass., and Mark Kemp of Mattapoisett, Mass. – in Bristol Superior Court for “unfair and deceptive practices.” Coakley obtained a temporary restraining order against the defendants, prohibiting them from taking further deposits from consumers, unless the deposits are put into a designated escrow account and used for the ordinary course of business.

According to the complaint, many consumers were misled by false promises and paid for services they never received.

Advertising by the company promised metal-restoration services for rare and antique automobiles “in as little as four weeks,” according to the lawsuit. Many consumers allegedly delivered their parts along with advanced payment of at least half the cost of the work. These consumers allegedly never received a finished product. •
