Consumer Issues Records
What Are Consumer Issues?
Unfortunately, there are all too many times when consumers engage in some form of transaction and end up disappointed or even outraged with the outcome, the product, or the sales tactic. These transactions can occur in person, over telephone, email, text or other electronic communications, and they can involve numerous issues including unethical sales tactics, disruptive phone calls, fraudulent or misleading advertising, etc. If you've experience these types of consumer issues, you should take appropriate measures to report your concerns and complaints to the administering authorities to prevent further proliferation of such practices.
How to File a Consumer Issues Complaint?
To file a complaint about an unfair or otherwise harassing form of business practice, you should contact the relevant agencies that track such issues and provide documentation and a detailed account of your experience. Collection of multiple consumer complaints draws attention to questionable businesses, products or business practices and often times results in impediment of such occurrences.
