New York City Consumer Fraud Attorney
Consumer Protection Law & Consumer Fraud Attorney: Fighting Back in New York
Where opportunities exist to deceive unwary consumers, they will be exploited. Fraud occurs when you have been injured by an intentional or reckless misrepresentation of a fact. In the debt collection industry, I see more fraud than in any other industry. I see falsified affidavits of service, misrepresentations as to ownership and amounts of debts, collector threats of garnishment and arrests, and other legal misrepresentations, which are relied upon by consumers who surrender their money.
Debt collection abuse and fraud is a freight train too big and powerful to be stopped by government regulators alone. Private attorneys and legal aid groups must help enforce state and federal laws that make wrongdoers liable for deceiving and hurting the consuming public. To this end, many laws require the wrongdoer to pay attorney's fees and damages to a plaintiff who successfully enforces these laws. These laws are essential to advancing marketplace justice. The Langel Firm uses them regularly to protect its clients and recover money damages.
