• Used cars, Internet scams top Indiana consumer complaint list

    March 09, 2012 No comments

    Used cars and Internet scams were among the top consumer complaints received in 2011 by the Indiana attorney general’s office.

    The agency released its list of most-received complaints Thursday in conjunction with National Consumer Protection Week.

    The state urges consumers buying a used car to make sure to read the warranty and research the vehicle’s history with a title history service . It says it’s also a good idea to have a mechanic inspect the car before buying it.

    The attorney general’s office also advises consumers never to respond to requests for personal or financial information via email and not to click on links in unsolicited emails.

    Other top complaints included harassment by debt collectors and home repair scams.
