Little league claims it's missing thousands of dollars in registration fees
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- The Virginia Beach Little League is out $38,000 after the league president claims a Texas-based company never paid them the money they're owed.
Doug Will, the president of the league, said they used the company to handle online registrations for the spring season but then company never sent the league the registration money.
"I reached out to them 'Hey guys I haven't seen any money' and I wasn't getting responses. Every once in a while I would get a response and just got excuses why they couldn't pay," said Will.
That company is Jevin, Inc. based in Allen, Texas.
They never got back to 13News Now when contacted about the accusations.
A search on the Better Business Bureau site shows it's not BBB accredited and two other people have complained.
One said on the BBB website the company is a small family-owned business and Jevin owes them almost $50,000.
"You know at first you're in denial, thinking there's something wrong on the other end," said Will.
Out thousands of dollars, Will can't move forward with other projects painting, repairing roofs, and fixing the batting cages.
"It takes a lot of people and a lot of money to keep this place up and running," he said.
Up and running the little league will stay, despite what gets in the way.
"We've got to keep moving forward. We're not going to let it stop us. It won't stop us," he said.
Will said they've since switched to a new company to help with the online registrations.
He said they've also talked to different attorneys and plan to take legal action soon.
