Anyone can be a victim of consumer fraud. A recent survey by the Federal Trade Commission reported more than 800,000 consumer fraud and identity theft complaints in the span of a year, with accompanying losses of more than $1.2 billion.
While small claims or court, or even criminal charges may be an option if somebody steals your credit card number or sells you something and doesn’t deliver, the most flagrant perpetrators of consumer fraud, capable of doing the most damage to individuals, often consider themselves above such legal remedies. Those are the major corporations that sometimes knowingly sell defective or even dangerous products, under the assumption that individuals don’t have the legal and financial resources to take them on.
Fortunately, that’s not true. There’s strength in numbers. Mass tort firms like Lopez McHugh bring together large numbers of people with similar complaints. If necessary, we’ll join forces with other law firms and fraud attorneys.
By so doing, we’ve recovered more than $1 billion in damages for our clients. No matter how big they are or how much money they have at their disposal, companies or other entities that commit consumer fraud can be held accountable.
