Consumer Protection

As consumers we purchase and utilize many different things. While we can do our own due diligence and read about the products, services, or real estate before making any purchases, there are still instances in which we find ourselves the victims of fraud, misrepresentation, omission, or even unconscionable commercial practices.

Since this can be so detrimental to consumers, New Jersey’s Consumer Protection laws, which are some of the strongest and broadest in the country, help to protect their rights. In addition to the behavior prohibited by the Consumer Fraud Act, there are numerous other laws, rules, and regulations, which have been enacted under the umbrella of the state’s Consumer Fraud Act.

The Consumer Fraud Act

Under the Consumer Fraud Act there are many specific rules that merchants and service providers must follow when it comes to their customers. The New Jersey Legislature and the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs have enacted specific laws and regulations for various businesses. Such businesses include:

  • Car Dealerships
  • Certain Religious Food Sellers
  • Employment and Personnel Services
  • Extended Vehicle Warranty Sellers
  • Fraudulent Charities
  • Health Clubs
  • Home Improvement Contractors
  • Internet Dating Sites
  • Movers and Warehousemen
  • Pre-paid Phone Cards
  • Telemarketers
  • Towing Companies

A Consumer Protection Attorney Can Help

There is nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money only to be defrauded or mistreated. If you believe that you have been taken advantage of by a merchant or service provider you may be entitled to protection and recovery under the Consumer Fraud Act. In fact, if you have been subjected to the loss of money or property as a result of a merchant or service provider’s unlawful practices, you may be entitled to three times the amount of your actual damages, as well as reasonable attorney’s fees. Even if you have not suffered any damages, you may still be entitled to a full refund if you have paid someone money as a result of their unlawful practices.
