Actual and Constructive Fraud, Breach of Contract, Conversion, Virginia Consumer Protection Act, Attorney
Have you ever gone to a store or placed an order online and just before you pull out your card to pay you're quoted a different price than you were expecting? If the advertisement that attracted you to make this purchase was false - or even just misleading - you may be able to do something about it.
Our attorneys recently represented a client who used a coupon code online to receive a discount. A few days after placing the order and paying, the vendor contacted him to let him know the code should not have been honored and the customer could either pay the higher price or receive a discount.
We contacted the vendor and demanded the vendor pay damages. After some negotiations, our client got to keep the item and received a full refund.
Many consumer protection causes of action provide larger damages than those the client suffers. We usually agree to represent our clients in exchange for a percentage of what we recover. Often, we are able to employ the Virginia Consumer Protection Act to force the other side to pay our attorney fees. That allows us to devote significant legal resources to help clients in cases which otherwise would be unprofitable.
If you're tired of getting ripped off, give us a call to schedule a free, confidential consultation to see if you have a claim. Often, we give the client a list of evidence we need the client to gather before we decide whether to pursue any potential claim(s). The sooner you get started, the sooner you'll find out what your options are.
