Consumer fraud is more common than many people realize. The truth of the matter, though, is that there are a number of scams and schemes designed to defraud innocent and unsuspecting individuals of their hard-earned money. Sometimes these scams are intentionally carried out by individual bad actors, but other times, businesses engage in unfair trade practices that are meant to deceive consumers. Either way, those who have been financially harmed through these bad acts want their money back.
The good news is that these fraud victims may be able to get back what they lost by taking legal action. To succeed on these claims, though, certain legal elements must be proven by a preponderance of the evidence. Those accused of defrauding consumers are usually represented by aggressive defense attorneys, too, meaning that a victim’s claims need to be backed by competent evidence and strong legal arguments that have a firm basis in the law.
