MEYERSDALE, Pa. (AP) - The former operators of a western Pennsylvania memorial business have refunded nearly $19,000 to customers who made advanced payments for burial monuments and didn’t receive them.

The (Somerset) Daily American reports (https://bit.ly/1efFsOP ) Fred Lichty and Roger Lichty, who operated Cook & Lintz in Meyersdale, have agreed with the state Attorney General’s Office to get out of business in Pennsylvania.

Spokesman Jeff Johnson says the office’s Bureau of Consumer Protection began receiving complaints from customers more than a year ago. Officials said Monday that some complained that the company failed to provide burial monuments after accepting advance payments.

Johnson says the settlement effectively takes them out of business in Pennsylvania.

William Carroll, the Lichtys’ attorney, says his clients ran into some “cash flow problems.”
