If you have been scammed by GISOL please call the CA district attorney Robert Jackson at 213-580-3324.

Extended Auto Warranties In Your State - CenoDreata Car News Blog
When you start doing your research in anticipation of buying extended vehicle coverage, you have to dig a bit deeper than just a single, broad explanation of legal terms and such. The fact is, the extended auto warranties in your state may be regulated and controlled in ways quite different than in a neighboring state. If you only have time to read one article (you have to leave in five minutes and the subject just came up), then it should at least be one that covers the specifics for your home state. Auto insurance is not yet on anyone’s short list for nationalization, so there will not be one-size-fits-all federal ... market research, surveys and trends

FDA Set to Slather Us With New Sunscreen Regulations, But Will They Stick?
While soaking up those glorious rays of sunshine this summer, Americans should be mindful about what types of rays their sunscreen bottles claim to protect against, because the manufacturers won't. The sun emits two types of ultraviolet (UV) radiation that penetrates the ozone layer. Most sunscreen products protect against just one kind — ultraviolet B rays — which can cause sunburns. But most products do not protect against ultraviolet A rays, which are responsible for wrinkles — and skin cancer. The truth is, sunscreen manufacturers aren’t going to tell you what their product won't protect ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Should iPad Owners Have the Right to Unlimited Data?
For at least one iPad owner, the option to switch between different data service plans is a right worth suing for. After all, there are days when downloading buckets of data makes an unlimited service plan a carefree experience on the wallet, while other days an unlimited service is overkill and brings unnecessary costs to the household budget. AT&T had previously offered customers the attractive option of switching back and forth between an unlimited 3G service plan or a service plan that capped their data usage on AT&T's 3G network but carried a lower monthly fee. That option, however, ended last week when AT&T canceled ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Is false advertising illegal? - Yahoo! Answers
Yes false advertising is illegal. It may be prosecuted either civilly or criminally depending on the applicable state or federal laws, facts and circumstances. Under federal law, the seller can not violate the Federal Trade Commission laws and regulations governing consumer protection and misleading marketing of products or services. Generally each state has a "mini-FTC" consumer protection statute that defines the specific conduct that is outlawed. The state Attorney General's consumer protection office should be notified about this. You may be able to pursue a private civil action against the violator and, ...
Consumer Rights: Deceptive Practices at AT&T Wireless, wireless ...
I recently switched from AT&T Wireless to Verizon. I just received my final bill and it included a charge for Early Termination Fee based on my purchasing a phone last May. I bought the phone from an AT&T store in East Hanover, NJ. The Sales Rep who assisted me, told me that the phone was $49.99, but when he found out I worked for Kraft Foods, he said the phone was $19.99 with the Corporate discount. I asked if this purchase would put me back under contract (I had been out of contract for some time and did not want to go back under contract). He assured me that I would not be back under contract. Before leaving the store I ...
