Lawsuit Filed Against Walker Stalkers LLC by TN Attorney General

Well the saga of Walker Stalkers LLC and their Walker Stalker and Fan Fest brands continues, and things are only getting more dramatic as the days go by. We talked about their financial issues almost a year ago, but they’ve had also had the Better Business Bureau call them a “scam,” last minute con “postponements,” PR disasters involving guests which got to the point of a number of them refusing to appear again, management shakeups, a disastrous Nashville event, and a last minute cancellation of their London event earlier this week.

And now it’s getting worse, in large part because of that Nashville disaster.

On February 18th, the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office filed a lawsuit against Walker Stalkers LLC alleging that the company engaged in unfair, deceptive or misleading acts by refusing to promptly issue refunds to attendees for cancelled guests and events. The suit states

Unlike their Portland and Phoenix counterparts, Nashville consumers and vendors did not even receive an email informing them of Defendants’ unilateral and last minute decision to cancel the event. Many ticket holders and vendors traveled to the event site, only to discover the cancellation on the day of the event.

According to the suit, even excluding attendees, vendors and guests, Walker Stalkers LLC owes over $1.6 million to creditors as well. It’s not really a good look for James Frazier or his company.

We’ll see what happens.
