The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota issued a warning Friday about Stephanie Lasch, a massage business owner in the Twin Cities, after customers complained about unjustified charges and worthless gift certificates.
In January, the BBB saw a spike in complaints against Lasch’s StoneWater Massage and Skin Care in Lino Lakes after the business closed and consumers were unable to redeem gift certificates.
That same month, the Lino Lakes Police Department posted an alert on its Facebook page saying it was investigating allegations of fraudulent electronic charges appearing on accounts of StoneWater customers. At that time, Lino Lakes Police believed there were at least 50 victims.
Lasch could not be reached Monday for comment.
