Consumer Fraud & False Advertising

There is no depth to which some businesses won't sink to take your money. In addition to handling auto fraud matters, we also represent consumers in other kinds of transactions.

Bogus Product "Sales": How many times have you seen an advertisement for a product at 50% off and wondered if it was really a good deal?< Unsurprisingly it often isn't. Retailers prey on consumers' understandable vulnerability when it comes to bargain-seeking by misrepresenting a product to be "on sale" when it is never actually sold at the suggested price upon which the sale price is based.

Useless products: A good number of products sold on television have absolutely no reason to exist other than to part you from your money. Such products are marketing by misrepresenting their uses and effects.

We are looking for customers who purchased Kinoki Foot Pads and other "detox" foot pads, the Shoo!Tag, and Enzyte (or other "male enhancement" pills).

Bogus charges, fake taxes: Consumers are being nickel and dimed to death by merchants adding relatively small charges to their bills. Some industries, such as the travel industry, thrive on this practice. We have recovered more than $1,000,000 on behalf of consumers who were cheated by area merchants inserting fake taxes into their bills.
