In the past few weeks, we’ve talked about a number of scenarios that might result in finding yourself with snowballing debt. Medical bills can cause sudden debt that is difficult to recover from. Credit card bills can get out of hand, especially if you choose to live on credit temporarily between jobs or during financial lulls. Sometimes, though, sudden debt might be the result of deceptive business practices.
We’re not saying that every business is out to cheat customers and bolster their own bottom line, but we have seen this happen. As much as you, we want to believe that everyone operates within a moral code, but this is simply not true. Businesses might cheat customers through methods such as deception in advertising or product packaging, but they could also create difficult to understand fine print that leads consumers to make a choice they wouldn’t otherwise make.
Deceptive business practices don’t just result in debt for some individuals. They can also result in injury to persons or damage to property or finances. If you have experienced such a situation, it might seem like you are a single person fighting an army of giants. Corporations are often prepared for legal actions and have plans ready to combat those actions.
