Consumer Claims for Deceptive Business Practices

There are all too many unfair and deceptive business practices used commonly by dishonest and unscrupulous businesses and corporations to deceive and defraud consumers. These include unconscionable and deceptive pricing, bait and switch marketing, false advertising, phony disclosure of manipulative bookkeeping devices, and charging for services never provided among many, many others. Such fraudulent and deceptive business practices also distort the marketplace by allowing dishonest businesses to gain unfair advantage over ethical competitors. Numerous state and federal laws provide consumers with broad protection from unfair and illegal business practices, but lax and inconsistent enforcement means that legal action is often the only recourse that consumers have.
