We have all received a final bill at one time or another and thought "I never agreed to that charge." Worse yet, some companies advertise rates or prices that are different from what they actually provide you. Sometimes you know when you have been cheated. Sometimes, you simply think something is not quite right. More often than not, your "gut reaction" is correct. In those situations, you are most likely just one of thousands of people who have suffered the same mistreatment. When businesses engage in false advertising, bait-and-switch practices or outright misrepresentation, many consumers are victimized.
There is strength in numbers. Consumers who have been cheated by companies can band together in consumer class action litigation and seek restitution and damages. The first step is taken by one person who recognizes and reports the false advertising and hires a lawyer who can be a strong advocate and ally.
