Computer company must pay restitution

SPRINGFIELD - Edge Micro Corp., a Springfield company that sold computer equipment over the Internet but repeatedly failed to provide the ordered merchandise, must stop doing business in Oregon while it pays up to $50,000 in restitution to victims, state Attorney General Hardy Myers announced Wednesday.

The firm and its owner, Brian Banger of Springfield, were named in an "assurance of voluntary compliance," which outlines the steps Banger must take in the next 180 days.

Department of Justice investigators responded to 32 complaints from consumers across the nation, who reported paying for equipment that was never delivered or receiving equipment inferior to what Edge Micro had advertised. The civic consumer agencies received 100 complaints on the company.

Consumers who want to participate in the restitution program may call the Department of Justice toll-free at 1 (877) 877-9392.

Before sending money to an Internet retailer, consumers should check its complaint history with the department, Myers said.
