Advocating On Behalf of Helpless Victims
Consumer fraud is growing increasingly common as time goes on. You may be wondering what constitutes consumer fraud, and whether or not you have been a victim of it. The standard definition for consumer fraud is any instance in which you suffer a financial or personal loss because of unfair, deceptive, false, illegitimate, or misleading business practices. This can occur on a large-scale, such as with banking, or it may occur in a singular instance with a product that has simply failed to do as promised.
Those most likely to be victims of consumer fraud are those who are less vigilant with their finances or purchases, such as the elderly, young adults, and college students. Oftentimes this can occur when a product is advertised as being safe when it isn’t, or when it promises magic results and delivers nothing at all, or worse, causes harm or injury. The consequences of consumer fraud can be devastating both financially and emotionally, which is why it essential you enlist in the help of a skilled and aggressive personal injury lawyer as soon as you become aware of this occurrence.
The following are common examples of consumer fraud:
- Credit or debit card fraud, such as overcharging or hidden fees
- Unfair terms and conditions in order to complete a transaction
- Identity theft
- Banking fraud
- Travel fraud
- Medicare/Social security or healthcare fraud
- False advertising
- Unfair pricing
- Safety issues
- Illegitimate charities
