Kansas couple accuses store of selling fake Persian rug
December 13, 2018
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A couple is accusing a Kansas City rug company of selling them a fake antique Persian rug.
Maranatha and David Christie filed a lawsuit against Knotty Rug Co. last week, alleging that an appraiser told them the Persian rug they purchased in December 2014 for $28,000 may have been altered to appear older than it is and might not actually be Persian, typically meaning that it originated in Iran. The lawsuit also accuses the store of misrepresenting about 14 other rugs the couple purchased for more than $39,000 in September 2014, the Kansas City Star reported.
