Some parents are crying foul over a local sports company. They found some extra charges on their credit cards, long after the T-ball season was over.
For Robin Reedy and her 4-year-old son, Austin, his first T-ball season wrapped up in early June. But ever since, several new charges have appeared on Reedy's bank and credit card statements, totaling $330.
"This past Sunday my husband wondered what was on the account and I didn't know what he was talking about," Reedy said.
And she isn't alone. Earlier this year, Reedy signed up for the team along with other parents - at least four by her count - who also found extra charges on their statements. FOX5 spoke with one mother who was hit for $30 twice. The charges have no explanation and come straight from the company running the team - Diversity Youth Sports.
"I'm still kind of the victim here having to deal with all of this," Reedy said after she canceled all three of her credit cards, each of which she used for a different purchase on the team.
Reedy and the other parents tried calling the company, but they ran into more problems.
"You couldn't find any information, there's no phone number. It's closed until September," Reedy said, referring to the Diversity Youth Sports website, which offers no upfront solution for customers looking for answers. There's no one to contact until Sept. 3. The company even canceled all of its summer sports programs.
Now, Reedy wonders if other families were charged and don't even know it yet.
"This is the first sport that I ever signed my kids up for, so it was exciting venturing into it, and I was really excited about it, but now we're waiting for fall to come after the summer heat is over and I wanted to put him into more sports, but now I don't know where to go."
Diversity Youth Sports is licensed by the state of Nevada and has an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau.
An address for the company's southern Nevada office on Maryland Parkway led FOX5 to a mostly vacant office park, with no signage or clear indication of the office location.
