RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Attorney General Roy Cooper says a North Carolina company that sold off-road vehicles online has been temporarily barred from business based on complaints from consumers.

A statement from Cooper’s office says that at his request, a judge temporarily barred Barry T. Moose Jr. of Statesville and his company, Mooser Moto, LLC, from advertising, selling or collecting payments.

A lawsuit filed by the attorney general in August says Riders Wholesale offered all-terrain vehicles, utility vehicles, scooters, go-carts and mopeds for sale online. The company collected money upfront and promised delivery by a certain date.

Consumer complaints indicated Riders Wholesale routinely failed to deliver ATVs and other vehicles as promised. In many cases, consumers never got what they ordered and could not get the company to pay them a full refund.
