Some moms feel scammed waiting for breast milk jewelry

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Several women who sent their breast milk to a Rhode Island jeweler to have it turned into keepsakes say they feel scammed after not receiving their jewelry.

Some customers tell WPRO-AM ( ) they sent MommyMilk Creations money and their milk up to two years ago and still haven't received anything from company owner Allicia Mogavero.

They say invoices show that Mogavero has processed their payments for the pendants, which cost hundreds of dollars, but she isn't returning their calls and emails.

Mogavero says her business is legitimate but acknowledges that wait times are long. She tells the radio station it's not a matter of if customers receive their products but when.

State Attorney General Peter Kilmartin says his office received one formal complaint about MommyMilk, in 2014, but it was closed once the complainant received the item.
