What is False Advertising and Consumer Fraud?

Generally speaking, false advertising means publishing, transmitting, or publicly circulating deceptive or misleading advertisements in order to promote the sale of services, goods, or property.

Consumer fraud is broader. False advertising is a type of consumer fraud, but consumer fraud generally encompasses anything that involves a company acting in a way that does not give you the full value of what was promised or purchased. This also includes defective products or products that otherwise are not fit for their stated purpose. Many states, including New Jersey, make false advertising and various types of consumer fraud illegal. As a consumer, you have the right to seek monetary compensation through a personal or class-action lawsuit if you have been the victim of consumer fraud.

New Jersey has one of the strongest consumer protection statutes in the country, allowing you to recover up to three times your damages as well as any attorney’s fees (meaning you don’t need to pay for your attorney).

Can You Sue for False Advertising and Consumer Fraud?

Yes, as a consumer, you can sue for false advertisement and consumer fraud. Some common examples of false advertising and consumer fraud are:

Bait and Switch: This occurs when the product/service you purchased is not the same as what was promised in the advertisement. For example, this can include when a specific feature is missing from the product.

Credit and Financing: Companies are required to disclose all terms and conditions that apply when advertising credit rates and financing.

Deceptive Guarantee or Warranty: Consumer fraud or false advertising can occur when companies do not uphold their warranties or refunds.

Defective Product: Consumer fraud can occur with products that are simply defective, or do not work as intended. For example, if you buy a computer mouse advertised with multiple buttons, and one of those buttons either does not work or breaks shortly after purchase.

Hidden Fees: This type of false advertising occurs when a company does not disclose all of the fees and costs associated with their service/product. For example, this can include unauthorized recurring monthly fees or maintenance fees.

Misleading Labels: This common type of false advertisement occurs when a company falsely labels its product in order to appeal to the consumer. An example would be a company advertising an ethernet cable as being of a certain speed when it isn’t. “Organic” and “All-natural” are other types of frequently seen misleading labels.

Poor Quality: Companies often pretend that a service/product is of higher quality than what it actually is, which is ultimately deceptive and misleading. For example, you might order a product that breaks within days of normal use.

Suing for false advertisement requires significant experience and knowledge around consumer fraud. False advertisement attorneys and consumer fraud attorneys can work to help you get the reimbursement you deserve.
