On May 16, 2013, BBB attempted to send mail to Alaska Chimney Sweep at 18688 Amonson Rd, Chugiak, AK 99567; however the mail was returned to BBB as undeliverable on May 31, 2013.
On May 31, 2013, BBB called the company at (907) 522-9959 and spoke with owner Cassie Jordan, who provided a mailing address of 650 N Eckert St, Palmer, AK 99645.
To ensure Alaska Chimney Sweep had an opportunity to review and respond to its complaints, on June 4, 2013, BBB resent four previously unanswered complaints to the new mailing address. However, no response was received; on November 11, 2013, the complaints again closed as unanswered.
On October 9, 2013, BBB issued a press release stating, "A Palmer-based chimney service company is accused of accepting down payments, not performing any work and ignoring requests for refunds." http://news.deltanewsweb.com/news/2013/10/09/chimney-sweep-wont-issue-refunds-leaves-customers-hearth-broken
