• Customers accuse woman of not delivering on sales from at-home parties

    Updated:

    IRWIN, Pa. - Channel 11 looked into allegations of bad business in Westmoreland County when viewers contacted us, saying they didn't get what they paid for from one local woman.

    Just last spring, the woman pleaded guilty in Westmoreland County to theft, but more victims are coming forward now, saying she ripped them off, too, through her latest business venture.

    She's supposed to be a trusted consultant for Scentsy, but clients who've been buying products through her claim she's keeping their money and their orders.

    People have come forward saying the woman has taken money, some even sharing their frustrations on social media, saying they plan to pursue criminal charges.

    "I had a party, I brought books to the salon where I work," said Tracey Gizzi, one of the woman's former clients. She booked a Scentsy party, and says several of her salon customers never got their orders.

    "They placed orders, a couple of my customers, and three of my customers did not get their product, but their checks were cashed," Gizzi said.

    It's not the only allegations this woman has faced. Just last year, she plead guilty to theft and fraud charges,  bilking more than $55,000 from Jason Silvis, who used her as his accountant.

    "She had everything," Silvis said. "She had my Social Security number and bank accounts, she had access to so much information."

    Channel 11 is not naming the woman because there haven’t been any criminal charges filed through her work with Scentsy, but police told Channel 11 they are investigating and looking into it.

    Scentsy released the following statement: “We feel terrible about what may have taken place. This type of action is completely against Scentsy policy, and it in no way represents the Scentsy brand.”

    Channel 11 also contacted the woman being accused, but did not hear back.
