SEEKONK, Mass. (WPRI) – There’s a new, handwritten sign hanging in the door of Tranquil Waters, a day spa in Seekonk. It says “due to unforeseen circumstances – Tranquil Waters is permanently closed.”
Now, customers like Lori Sardinha, of Bristol, are stuck with useless gift cards.
“People are furious she did this,” Sardinha said. “I just hope she gets in trouble for doing this. When you’re selling things and accepting money and not getting anything in return, that’s fraud.”
Call 12 for Action tried unsuccessfully to track down the owner of Tranquil Waters, who’s listed as June Mundy-Ferreira on Massachusetts Secretary of State business filings.Facebook post from the Tranquil Waters page said, “With the horrible economy for the last few years, increases in wages and business taxes, and business going to less expensive competitors, we were unable to survive… While we apologize for any money you may have lost on gift cards, the owners have lost everything they’ve worked for…”
Soon after, the Facebook account was deleted.
If you have an unused gift card from Tranquil Waters, contact the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Consumer Advocacy and Response Division. You can file a complaint online or over the phone at 617-727-8400.
According to business filings with the Rhode Island Secretary of State’s office, Mundy-Ferreira also owned the Burger Bar on Newport Avenue in Pawtucket. The restaurant recently closed.
Call 12 for Action checked with the Rhode Island Attorney General’s office and learned there are no consumer complaints regarding outstanding gift cards for the Burger Bar.
Yes, please rob thousands of dollars from your community, right before Mother’s Day, and then YOU play the victim. Fucking cow.
June has been all over her Facebook pages advertising her services as “June Edwards – Medium. I kid you not. Look at this hag:
Guess she should have seen it coming! Too soon?
Anyways, June Mundy-Ferreira, who owned the spa, was still selling gift cards that she is refusing to honor right up until the doors closed. A lot of them were for Mother’s Day and Christmas. People are ripping her apart on the local pages for stealing their money.
She didn’t even tell her employees that they were out of a job because she didn’t want them to not show up for work. Classy. She has zero regard for other humans.
She wouldn’t even allow people to use their cards for products that the spa had been selling even though she had a fire sale the day after the announcement.
This chick looks like one of those bar flies that hangs out at the local VFW sucking down White Russians and screaming for Adele to come on the jukebox, doesn’t she? Well, guess what!? She’s failed at pretty much everything she’s done.
I did some digging up on June and she’s got a ton of lawsuits against her. One of which is because she refused to pay the contractors that installed the floors of the Spa. She’s had a ton of failed business ventures prior to the day spa; from daycares to ice cream parlors. She has no degree in business management and thinks that just because she wants to own a business that she’s cool to run one.
People paid you money for services and you took off with their cash. Now you want to play psychic because you’ve seen Long Island Medium and think that will make you rich? Fuck off lady. If this chick tries to open another business I want you to message Auntie Turtlegirl and I will make sure she gets the proper publicity!
Now, the number for the AG is above in the article. If you were swindled by her I want you to call. If you’ve had a run in with her hit up out inbox. I’m sure there are tons of stories on this lady that never made the news.
