SURF CITY, NC (WWAY) -- A follow-up on a story you saw ONLY ON 3. The group of Ukrainian women who claim they were never paid in full by their US employer are now reaching out to law enforcement.
The three women have now gotten the Surf City Police Department involved. They filed a formal complaint against Waves Surf and Sport, but police may have their hands tied. The police department says it will document their story. The report can then be used in court if it goes that far. The Surf City Police Department says if there was anything criminal going on, that's when it would get involved.
"They really said that they couldn't do nothing, because it's not a crime situation it's a civil case. They advised us to get (an) attorney," Juliia Bolgazyna, one of the students who filed the complaint, said. The women say at this time they do not plan on seeking help from an attorney, because they do not have the money to get one.
