You may have already heard about the computer technical support scam where someone impersonating a Microsoft technician calls and says there's something wrong with your computer and that they can fix it for a payment of a few hundred dollars.
Ask Consumer Ed!
Dear Consumer Ed: I dropped my car off at the dealership for a repair. They said it would take two days to repair, but they’ve had the car for a week now and I’m still waiting. I need my car! Is there a law that will force them to make the repair as promised?
Dear Consumer Ed: My daughter has an upcoming volleyball competition in Atlanta and the hotel prices have gone up dramatically for the weekend we want to stay. I realize there are several events going on that weekend, but isn't there a law that will prevent rates from skyrocketing? We want to stay very close to the event and they are just gouging us.
