Consumer Fraud: What Can You Do?

  • Become familiar with the real thing. Watch out for so-called bargains and look for genuine quality behind the label.

  • When shopping for cashmere or cashmere blend garments, check the loop labels and hang tags for cashmere percentage. Sometimes retailers use sleeve hang tags that read "Cashmere" or Cashmere blend", but the garments only have 10% or less cashmere. Without a statement of actual fiber percentages, this is a violation of the Wool Products Labeling Act, enforced by Federal Trade Commission, and it is deceptive advertising.

If you suspect consumer fraud, please contact the Federal Trade Commission, your State Attorney General's office of Consumer Fraud or your local Better Business Bureau.
