False Labeling Complaint Center launches national initiative

The False Labeling Complaint Center is calling out to consumers who believe they were deliberately deceived as to the quality or the viability of a product by dishonest labeling to contact them at 866-714-6466, if within the last year they bought the product, or the service. One condition that must be met is that the consumer must still have the receipt, the consumer must still have the packaging or promotional material that proves the mislabeling, and the product must have been sold by a major national retailer, a pharmacy, an insurance company, or a bank.

According to The False Labeling Complaint Center, millions of US consumers purchase falsely labeled products, or services each year, and they either write it off as a mistake, or get rebuffed by the company when they ask for their money back. The Complaint Center believes what the consumer fails to realize is it happened to them, probably happened to thousands, or tens of thousands of other individuals, especially if the product was sold by a national retailer, a national bank, insurance company, or a pharmacy chain.

The only catch the False Labeling Complaint Center has in helping these types of individuals is the consumer must have the receipt, the promotional material, or sales literature, and proof the product, or service failed to live up to expectations, as were advertised.

The Center says, "The perfect consumer we would like to hear from is one who purchased a product, or service from a major retailer, a bank, a phone company, an Internet service provider, an insurance company, or a pharmacy, and the product failed to deliver the promised result, or the product came hidden charges, or fees. The product, or service must have been available in all, or most US states, and the consumer attempted on their own to get a refund, and was denied. These are the types of consumers we would like to try and help, and if this sounds like you please call us."

Examples of types of product sold nationwide that didn’t live up to the label:
* An over the counter drug, or medication that did not work
* A cosmetic product, or a health supplement that did not deliver the promised results
* A financial service from a bank, or financial institution with hidden fees
* Any type of food product that offered nutritional, or health benefits that did not work
* Any type of energy conservation product that did not work
* Any type of cell phone, or cable program that came with hidden fees
* Home improvement products that were defective
* Any type of insurance product that came with hidden fees
* Defective building products that came with a warranty

The False Labeling Complaint Center wants to highlight that they are speaking about consumers in any US state including New York, California, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Nevada, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, Georgia, Indiana, Oregon, Michigan, Montana, Oklahoma, New Jersey, Nebraska, Washington, North Dakota, New Mexico, or New Hampshire.

For more information consumers who can prove they were deceived by a national brand name company, and false labeling, or advertising are urged to contact the False Labeling Complaint Center anytime at 866-714-6466.
