An online retailer allegedly failed to deliver products to consumers and would then try to sell customers a "kit" enabling them to get their merchandise faster, said Pennsylvania Acting Attorney General Bill Ryan.

Pennsylvania filed a consumer protection lawsuit in Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas against online retailers ZoommaniA LLC, Pro Digital Cameras Inc., and business owners Andrew Schwartz and Paul Nimerozky.

The lawsuit alleges the stores listed all inventory as being "in-stock" or "available" but within 48 hours of a purchase, the customer would get a phone call or email saying the item was out of stock.
