I'm a victim of a scam. Home Furnishings of Denver sold me, I made a down payment and the finance co. paid them for my furniture and now they are in the wind. They loaned me a sofa and love seat that is broken and missing parts. My furniture has never arrived and when I call they never answer or return my calls. I have to go down there to find out what's going on. Now they are gone. Now I have two pieces of furniture that aren't what I ordered and out my down payment. Finance Co what about?
