Common Consumer Rights Violations

A wide range of illegal practices perpetrated by persons or organizations can fall under the umbrella of consumer rights violations.

Buyer Fraud

Consumers who fall prey to fraud may be entitled to sue for the economic losses they have sustained, as well as lawyer fees and costs. Some examples of fraudulent tactics that can inflict harm on buyers include:

  • False advertising
  • The sale of counterfeit goods
  • Deceptive trademarks
  • Identity theft
  • False credit reporting
  • Lending violations
  • Telemarketing fraud

Each of these is an illegal action that often affects unwitting consumers. With the right evidence and a strong claim, individuals can fight back against these violations.

Wrongful Debt Collection

Just because somebody owes a debt does not mean that they deserve to be subjected to harassment or illegal or unfair practices by debt collectors. The FDCPA prohibits various types of abusive, deceptive, or unfair debt collection practices in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. This law sets the boundaries that debt collectors must operate in and provides consumers with recourse if debt collectors do not follow the rules.

Any person who has been the victim of illegal or unfair debt collection practices may be entitled to various types of actual and statutory damages up to $1,000 per incident. Several actions constitute a FDCPA violation, such as:

  • Contact from fake debt collectors
  • Leveraging false or illegal threats
  • Debt collectors posing as law enforcement
  • Debt collectors who contact consumers outside of authorized hours

In addition, debt collectors who contact an alleged debtor at their office despite the request not to, or who constantly reach out without legitimate cause, are breaching federal law. Consumers harmed by FDCPA violations can file a lawsuit in state or federal court seeking monetary damages.

TCPA Violations

Violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) are another frequently reported issue that can entitle individuals to financial relief. Since 1991, certain types of unsolicited calls, texts, and faxes had been prohibited. More recently, the National Do-Not-Call Registry (DNC) has been established to protect consumers throughout the United States from unwanted telemarketing calls.

The TCPA allows an individual to recover statutory damages in the amount of $500 to $1,500 per call, text, or fax that violates the TCPA. Examples of TCPA violations include:

  • Robocalls
  • Unsolicited phone calls
  • Sending texts or faxes without permission
  • Credit collectors who call without providing their name

In addition to seeking financial restitution for the impact of TCPA rights violations, a lawyer can help injured consumers nationwide hold these businesses accountable through civil action.
