Are You Eligible to Participate In a Consumer Fraud Claim?
Consumer fraud claims become viable claims when an individual suffers a financial or personal loss as the result of a business’ use of deceptive, unfair, misleading, or false business practices. Victims of this type of fraud are often misled into believing that they are participating in a valid transaction with a business when they are instead actually being lied to about the transaction itself and the entity and/or individual who is really behind the transaction. Common examples of consumer fraud include identity theft, credit and debit card fraud, debt collection fraud. There are a few governmental agencies and laws that are put in place to protect consumers against fraud. The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) is a government agency that accepts complaints about businesses that have possibly committed fraud.
