Better Business Bureau Price Gouging Reporting available
Anyone who suspects price gouging during a declared state of emergency should report it to Better Business Bureau: BBB.org/ad-truth.
Consumers also have an option to report these activities to the state attorney general’s office. When reporting a price gouging complaint, gather as much information as safely possible and follow these three tips:
1. Be as specific about the transaction as possible, including the name and address of the business, names of any employees involved, and information detailing the spike in pricing.
2. Gather together documentation supporting the price gouging (receipts, photos of products and their advertised pricing, invoices, etc.)
3. Compare pricing of similar products with other sellers in the area as well as online. It’s important to note similarities and differences between brands, size/quantity, manufacturers, model numbers, and prices.
