Consumer fraud encompasses unfair or deceptive business practices, perpetrated by companies or entities profiting illegally at the expense of consumers. Sanford Heisler Sharp represents individuals victimized by such unscrupulous activities. It can occur when a company or its representatives employ high-pressure or deceptive sales tactics; misrepresent or lie about the capabilities, functioning, or quality of a product or service; offer one product but deliver another (“bait and switch”); use fine print to defraud consumers; improperly bill for a product or service; offer a defective product; and much more.
Sanford Heisler Sharp has had significant success on this front, including securing millions of dollars for consumers cheated by their utility company. We are currently prosecuting consumer fraud class actions against an array of consumer service providers, including water suppliers, home energy industries, and landlords who provide substandard housing.
