WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT FORMS OF CONSUMER FRAUD?

By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Consumer Fraud Attorney

NJ Consumer fraud takes on many different forms.  Luckily, there are attorneys and lawyers who can help you with consumer fraud in the event that you are victim to a scam or theft. 

Most people are aware of the many different scams and schemes that are a part of life, but many good people have fallen prey to them over the years.  Scammers range from simple pickpockets to scammers who set up large, multinational Ponzi schemes.  One of the more famous examples of a scammer is Bernie Madoff, who set up a Ponzi scheme that caused many people around the world to lose large sums of money.

Consumer fraud is a deceptive practice that causes a loss of money or something else.  It is criminally punishable, but with globalization many forms of fraud originate in other countries. 
Contractors, employees, and legitimate-appearing companies are often the usual fraud suspects.  Fraud can happen to anyone and at any time.  An attorney can make sure that your fraud case is investigated and goes before law enforcement.  This is an essential step in the process when you are trying to prosecute someone for defrauding you.
