WVAG wins judgment against BlueHippo

The West Virginia Attorney General's Consumer Protection division has won another case against a company who scammed numerous West Virginians. A Kanawha County Circuit Court judge ordered that BlueHippo is enjoined from doing business in WV, voided all existing contracts with WV residents, and cancelled all consumer debts under all those contracts.

You may remember the TV commercial campaign from BlueHippo several years ago offering a new state-of-the-art brand-name computer plus monitor and other free accessories on a payment plan to anyone who had a checking account. The commercials didn't disclose the many onerous hidden terms of the contract that buyers would be required to sign, including their no-refund policy. Many consumers never even got the computers they were charged for.

Any WV resident who owed an outstanding debt under one of these contracts can now breathe easier, those debts are all cancelled and uncollectible. Anyone who receives an attempt to collect on these debts should contact the WV Attorney General's office at 1-800-368-8808.
