They say “everything is bigger in Texas,” but could that also be the case when referring to refunds and lawsuits? Golrokh Malakan, from Harris County, is after a refund for $20, 000 she claims to have invested in Safe Way Auto Glass LLC. Malakan filed a complaint in County District Court in late October against the company and Bita Abadi claiming she was a victim of fraud.
Malakan alleges she made an investment of $20,000, which she borrowed, into Safe Way Auto Glass LLC. According to her complaint, she and Abadi founded the company in February, some of the main details of their partnership for Malakan included: her financial investment in exchange for 25 percent of the company’s future profits and 25 percent ownership of the business, of which both parties agreed to, according to Malakan.
Her complaint also includes allegations against Abadi, in which Malakan claims he declined to provide any financial information regarding the company to her. After failing to get any updates about the company’s potential profits Malakan’s attorney reached out to the business requesting her financial investment back in exchange for her no longer being a member.
“… [He] refused my requests,” a portion of Malakan’s complaint reads in the court document.
According to court documents, Malakan is now seeking monetary relief of more than $100,000 and access to the financial records of the business.
