Steps You Can Take When You Have Been the Victim of Consumer Fraud

steps-you-can-take-when-you-have-been-the-victim-of-consumer-fraudIf you have been victimized in a consumer fraud scheme, the first thing you want to do is contact an experienced attorney. There are, however, other steps you can take to protect yourself and to help put others on notice of the potential scam.

Contact the National Consumer League’s Fraud Center

The National Consumer League provides information to the public regarding known scams, as well as ways that you can avoid being swindled. The League can also help you file a complaint with the proper federal regulatory agency.

File a Complaint with the Federal Trade Commission

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is an independent agency that promotes consumer protection and seeks to enforce anti-trust and competition laws. As a consumer, you can file a complaint with the FTC and the FTC will gather information and potentially take action against entities that are the subject of many complaints. The FTC also provides information regarding how to steer clear of consumer fraud scams.

Contact Your State’s Consumer Protection Agency

Most states have a separate consumer protection agency. In New Jersey, that’s the Office of Consumer Protection at the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. The OCP enforces the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act and has specific divisions that focus on home improvement contractors, cyber-fraud, motor vehicle fraud, lemon laws and kosher/halal enforcement.
