Fraud Prevention Expert in Consumer Protection Law
A fraud prevention expert with consumer protection law knowledge was needed for a class action case against a chain of retail stores. Plaintiffs alleged the defendant violated consumer protection law by collecting personal information as part of their merchandise return policy. Customers were required to write personal information on the return receipt as part of the return process. Consumer protection and privacy law prohibits the collection of personal information, specifically in relation to financial transactions, most notably via credit card.
