Consumers can make a difference by being educated and taking action on their consumer rights. Abusive debt collectors can be sued. Credit reporting agencies can be sued. But the real long term difference will be made when we all (we are all consumers, right?) take action within the framework of the government. Here is a page on NACA (National Association of Consumer Advocates) which discusses what we can all do to make a difference. Please take the time to protect yourself by getting involved.
Another resource for you is to join our Facebook Fan Page – Alabama Consumer Protection Attorneys where we share useful information about the same types of issues that we cover in this blog.
