Consumers often work hard to provide for their loved ones and, rightfully, expect truthful information when purchasing products and services. When corporations deceive or take unfair advantage of people, McKay Law helps turn the tables and fights to right the wrongs. It happens every day. Big business takes advantage of the little guy. It shouldn't happen. But it does. It takes courage to fight the big guys. But that's exactly what McKay Law has.
McKay Law represents people in class actions seeking to recover damages for deceptive business practices, including defrauding consumers of various products and services which do not perform as advertised, or overcharging and levying hidden charges through deceptive business practices. Consumer protection class actions play a key role in protecting consumers. Aggregating individual losses in a class action provides a powerful mechanism to recover for wrongful conduct by companies and unscrupulous operators.
According to the Federal Trade Commission, nearly 3 million cases of consumer fraud occurred in 2017, costing Americans more than $905 million. Debt collection was the most-reported category in 2017. Identity theft was the second-most reported category in 2017, with credit card fraud the most common type of identity theft reported and tax fraud the second most common type. Imposter scam reports, which the FTC describes as reports about someone pretending to be a trusted person to get consumers to send money or give personal information, was the third-most reported category in 2017. The other two “top-five” report categories in 2017 were telephone and mobile services (fourth) and banks and lenders (fifth). For military consumers, identity theft was the top report category in 2017. False advertising, bait and switch marketing, unconscionable pricing, and charging for services never provided are some other forms of unfair and deceptive practices.
