Yeah right. Hmmm. Let's see what you think next time you get a piece of junk car from a car dealer. What the lemon law is an entitlement? Or is it protection against thieving conniving car salesman.
And when you get a warranted item and it breaks, and the law does not make that company follow through on their warranty, will you just say, oh well, I didn't deserve the warranty anyway, because it would just be admission that you are a victim.
Maybe when a bank charges you an insane fee for something that was not your fault or puts an hold on your money indefinitely, something that happened quite frequently before regulations were put in place, would you greet the bounced checks, payouts to the bank for bad service, and the time spent to deal with it all? After all, pooh little you wouldn't want to be a victim.
It has tons of useful information on various subjects. What I find most useful is the complaint info sections which tells you exactly which government agencies to file complaint against that dishonest seller, telemarketers , banks, and many other.
"The Consumer Action Handbook is published annually by the Federal Citizen Information Center at the General Services Administration. Inside, you'll find helpful tips about preventing identity theft, understanding credit, filing a consumer complaint, along with many other useful topics."
It covers topics on:
Car Buying And Maintenance
Financing Your Education
Food and Grocery Shopping
Privacy Protection and Identity Theft
Shopping from Home
Telemarketing and Unwanted Mail
Utilities and Energy-Saving Appliances
Wills and Funerals
I have ordered this book in the past and have found the book very helpful. My sears electric hot water tank caught on fire two days after the warranty ended. I called the phone number listed for sears and that day, I received a confirmation from Sears that they were sending a truck out to remove the old water tank to send it for testing in quality control, a new electric hot water tank in a larger capacity had been purchased and on it's way, and they would pay for the installer to remove the old tank and install the new. My local sears refused to discuss anything because it was past the warranty by two days. My ford escort had engine problems and I had no luck with the dealership but one phone call to the president at the corporate office, I had a new engine put in within a two week period. When using the phone numbers in the book, play arround with the last two numbers of the ten digit number.That ford corporate guy was fuming I got his office number. Even if this book doesn't help me again, I came out ahead.
