When companies use fraudulent or deceptive practices to take advantage of consumers, they unfairly profit while their customers pay the price. Fortunately, there are remedies under federal and state consumer protection laws to hold these companies accountable and to stop consumer fraud from continuing in the future.
Consumer fraud occurs in virtually every industry. To combat fraud and protect consumers, federal and state consumer protection laws provide consumers rights and remedies for recovering damages suffered as a result of a merchandiser’s misrepresentations or failure to disclose defects.
Fraudulent practices can range from breach of warranty and failure to disclose, to false or deceptive advertising and bait and switch campaigns.
Recently, attorney L. Benjamin Mook, together with Kevin Stanley and Mike Blanton, obtained a class action verdict in Missouri on behalf of purchasers of 2003 – 2008 Infiniti FX vehicles. The FX line from 2003 to 2008 has a very high incidence of dash bubbling, which has not been fully remedied by Infiniti. A jury determined the misrepresentations regarding the quality of the vehicle caused each owner to suffer economic harm of $2,000 due to the diminished value of their vehicles. We are currently prosecuting similar claims in California on behalf of California and Texas owners of these vehicles.
