What is Consumer Fraud?

Alabama consumer fraud occurs when manufacturers or sellers cause consumers harm as a result of providing false information that misrepresented their products.

There are three forms of misrepresentation that arise under common law, including:

  • Intentional Misrepresentation (fraud) – A manufacturer knowingly deceives the consumer by presenting false information
  • Reckless Misrepresentation – A company consciously asserts information that may or may not be truthful
  • Negligent Misrepresentation – A seller carelessly communicates information that should be recognized as false
