Valencia Consumers Legal Remedies Act Lawyers
In California, the statute that protects consumers against deceptive practices is called The Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA). The act applies only to consumers and contains strong provisions to penalize companies that violate the act. Those who find themselves suffering due to violations of the act may be eligible for compensation from companies or businesses engaging in these deceptive practices.
The CLRA is the foundation from which consumer fraud claims stem. It protects against dozens of specific bad acts and practices, including:
- Holding out another’s services or products as one’s own
- Misrepresenting the place of origin of goods or services
- Representing goods as new or original when they are in fact used, altered, deteriorated, reconditioned, reclaimed, etc.
- Not selling goods or services as advertised
- Giving misleading accident history reports for motor vehicles
There are many more actions that fall within the act’s prohibitions. The overall concept involves consumers who are the victims of lies and deceit regarding goods or services they purchased.
