What Constitutes Deceptive Trade Practices?
In general, a deceptive trade practice is any action or statement from a business intended to mislead or defraud a potential buyer. False advertising falls under the umbrella of deceptive trade practice—if you are being led to buy a service or product in a deceitful way, you are falling victim to a deceptive trade practice.
Deceptive trade practices can appear in many different forms, including:
- Selling bootleg / counterfeit products
- Lying about the sponsorship or approval of a product
- Lying about the necessity of a certain good or service
- Advertising products without the intent to sell them as advertised
- Lying about the originality or newness of a used or refurbished product
- Purposefully stocking fewer products than would meet reasonable demand
If any of the above practices were used to defraud you of your money, you may be entitled to compensation and justice. The commercial litigators at BPB are skilled and experienced in developing cases that demonstrate a business was participating in knowingly deceptive actions. Seek justice with our firm today.
