Press Room » Watch Out for Price Gauging During Natural Disasters

10/01/2015 at 05:00 PM

Tips to Consumers:

Consumers are reminded to be wary not just of price gouging on products, but for gouging for services, such as home repair scams, and charity scams that often seek to prey on residents in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Because disasters often attract these unscrupulous practices, any consumer who has a complaint about price gouging or any emergency-related scams should call the Division of Consumer Affairs at 973-504-6240.

The Division of Consumer Affairs also provides tips for consumers on "How To Avoid DisasterRelatedScams,” including information on price gouging and on the home-repair scams and charity
scams that have been known to arise during times of emergency.

The flyer is available in English at http://njpublicsafety.com/ca/press/floodvictims.pdf and in Spanish at http://njpublicsafety.com/ca/press/SPfloodvictims.pdf.

Consumers who believe they have been cheated or scammed by a business, or suspect any other form of consumer abuse, can file a complaint with the State Division of Consumer Affairs by visiting its website at http://www.nj.gov/oag/ca/index.htm or by calling 973-504-6240.
