Consumers purchase a wide range of products and services. Most businesses offer their products and services in a fair and ethical manner, but there are times when businesses take advantage of their customers with unethical, unlawful, predatory, and deceptive business practices.
Harmful, unethical, and predatory business practices used by businesses include:
- Failure to provide contractually agreed-upon services or products
- Deceptive or misleading representations of quality or performance of products or services
- Deceptive and/or unlawful Terms of Service or other policies
- Unlawful consumer late fees
- Unlawful consumer termination fees
- Deceptive fee schedules
- Unauthorized consumer transactions
- Unlawful withholding of monies or deposits
- Providing faulty or defective products which cause harm to consumers
