Furniture Scandal: Mirrored Furniture on the Lam

Furniture Scandal: Mirrored Furniture on the Lam

Mirrored furniture is hot, but hard to find. So it was not without enthusiasm that we posted The Mirrored Furniture Company about a year ago. Run by Didi Rainey, this company had a great niche, but within weeks we started to hear problems like this:

7-14-05: "I ordered furniture from Didi Rainey- she never delivered the furniture- she stole my money and she is currently under investigation for fraud by the FBI and District Atorney's office."

Then we got comments from Ms. Rainey:

"Anyone who is owed money by Mirrored Furniture Company may contact us directly at 4611 Governors House Drive, Suite 805, Huntsville, Alabama 35801."

Has anyone? We haven't heard that anyone has.

But more comments came in about missing orders, money taken and broken promises. Soon we got a call from Ms. Rainey asking to take her post down as she had to close and deal with her problems. Out of respect for her difficulties, we did.

A number of months later, she called to say she had reorganized and was open for business again, so we ordered a table. We never saw it. Nevertheless, we were surprised. She was so nice on the phone.

Now we have received more complaints this week. In response to all this, we've taken down all the posts regarding this issue and put this one up in their place. We say WATCH OUT for people peddling mirrored furniture and make sure you don't pay until it really arrives.
