Do you suspect you’ve been cheated by a car dealer? Was your identity stolen online? Did you buy a washer-dryer that broke down the first time you used it? These are only a few of the potential consumer fraud scenarios that can happen. And they can happen to anyone.

Protecting Yourself from Consumer Fraud
