Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is suing a Chicago furniture salesman who is accused of stealing more than $62,000 from customers. Ziyad Suleiman operates District Furniture, Express Furniture Gallery, Export Furniture and U.S. Furniture.

The stores are located in Chicago, Bedford Park, Burbank and Chicago Ridge.

Madigan's complaint alleges that Suleiman fails to deliver the home furnishings purchased by customers and refuses to provide refunds.

The Attorney General says 54 people have filed complaints against the retailer, accusing him of taking their money.

We were unable to reach Suleiman for a comment.
