Consumer Fraud Help
Consumer fraud costs everyone valuable time and money, and it leads to overall higher retail prices. Federal and state fraud laws protect consumers against merchants who try to cheat. In addition to vehicles, consumer complaints about products and services range from faulty advertising to refund refusals. For instance, a store may advertise tools that do not perform as expected or are unsafe. Overcharging for items or concealing fees is another tactic merchants use to defraud consumers. Additionally, fraudulent merchants might require consumers to sign an unfair terms and conditions policy before they complete the sale. Perhaps a merchant overcharges for merchandise and then refuses to refund the extra charges. Online merchants sometimes claim returned merchandise was lost in the mail and thus they will not credit the account. These examples of consumer complaints require every consumer to be diligent and aware of potential fraud. Read the fine print on every contract before signing, carry printed advertisement into the stores when you shop, and keep your receipts and other paperwork from every purchase.
