What is Consumer Fraud?

In America, businesses are expected to meet certain minimum standards by refraining from unfair and deceptive tactics. To get a sense of the most common types of consumer fraud issues, you can take a look at the Federal Trade Commission’s annual list of consumer complaints. By far the biggest source of complaints relates to debt collection, which is regulated at the federal level by the Fair Debt Collection Act (Missouri does not have a comparable state law).

The law says that debt collectors cannot call you at odd hours, and they cannot call you at work. You can also write to a debt collector to tell them to stop contacting you, and they are supposed to stop unless they are confirming your request or informing you they are about to file a lawsuit. They also cannot publish your name to shame you or threaten you. They cannot make fraudulent statements, like falsely suggesting you have committed a crime or threatening legal actions they do not intend to take.

The FTC says their second biggest source of complaints are imposter scams. These are schemes where an imposter convinces you to hand over money for one reason or another. One common cover for scammers is the Internal Revenue Service. A caller might say they are with the IRS and that you owe money for your taxes that needs to be paid immediately with a wire transfer or prepaid debit card. If you send that money it is very hard to ever get it back.

Identity theft is the next biggest issue for the FTC. They warn that basically anything you read about in the news can become an identity theft scheme. For example, when healthcare open enrollment is in the news then you may get a call asking for your private information so you can sign up for health care. When the Equifax breach was in the news scammers would call and ask for information to supposedly help protect your data. The Commission can work with consumers to help them put a fraud alert on their credit report if they think anything is amiss.

Consumer fraud is not always shady debt collectors and scammers. For example, the ride-sharing company Uber has been sued for consumer fraud for getting hacked and then failing to disclose that to the 57 million customers and drivers that had their data stolen. Cases that big are generally conducted as a “class action,” which means that the court will resolve the dispute for a group of “representative parties” and then apply the ruling to the millions of other people in the same class. This is an important tool for the courts, because the court system would melt down if it had to resolve 57 million lawsuits related to one single hacking.
