Many people contact me who have been ripped off by a business. Unfortunately I am unable to take every case that comes through the door. Sometimes it does not make economic sense for the consumer to pursue the case, or the facts make the case difficult to prove. These issues can often cause the consumer a great deal of grief and feeling of hopelessness. However, the consumer should contact the Oregon Department of Justice for help.
The Oregon Attorney General has a wealth of information and resources to protect consumers. Here are just a few resources:
1: Before making a purchase you can check out the business before you buy. You can call the Oregon Department of Justice at 1-877-877-9392 or you can click on the link: https://justice.oregon.gov/complaints/
2: Report Fraud: If you think you have been ripped off you can call the Oregon Department of Justice at 1-877-877-9392 to request a complaint form, or you can click here for more information: https://justice.oregon.gov/forms/consumer_complaint.asp
The Department of Justice can assist many people by conducting an investigation and contacting the business on your behalf in an effort to resolve the dispute. The Department also has the ability to fine and seek civil penalties and other remedies on behalf of all Oregonians.
The Department of Justice can assist consumers with concerns about: Automobile Sales, Credit or Debit transactions, Home Repair issues, Retail Sales, Fraud, Real Estate Transactions, telemarketing and Home solicitations.
