What Entails a Consumer Fraud Case?
False advertising, misleading contracts, and misrepresentation are all elements of fraud. They encompass more than simply enticing a consumer to buy a faulty or under performing item. Consumers have the right to know what they are purchasing, but many businesses attempt to circumvent that right through shady practices. For example, many gym memberships will advertise a price to the consumer that is eventually bloated through undisclosed fees. Other products advertised as "free" may be weighed down with exorbitant fees or taxes.
Technology manufacturers are increasingly employing manipulated measurements to sell falsely-advertised products. For example, storage devices are measured in megabytes, gigabytes, or terabytes. However, metric measurements are slightly smaller than the imperial measurements that computer users often employ, so advertisers will use metric measurements to save money on manufacturing requirements.
Consumer fraud can also result in genuine harm to buyers. For example, the Southern Law Poverty Center has recently filed suits against conversion therapy centers. These centers purport to change sexual orientation through scientifically-questionable means, and New Jersey courts are beginning to hold them accountable for their unethical practices. Through their therapies, young homosexuals are misled and psychologically harmed, and often end up paying thousands of dollars for the process.
