Assemblyman Brian Curran, along with New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office, recently held a consumer fraud protection forum in Malverne to inform residents about useful tips to avoid being victimized by harmful or illegal practices.
Village of Malverne Mayor Patti McDonald was present at the event and reiterated her office’s support for consumer protection planning to residents.
Assemblyman Curran said the seminar provided information to attendees about how to protect themselves while buying used cars, hiring home contractors, obtaining a mortgage, purchasing items online and other items that put consumers at risk of misleading information.
The attorney general’s office prosecutes businesses and individuals engaged in fraudulent, misleading, deceptive or illegal practices. Part of the office’s mission is to provide information to consumers to seek and ensure a fair and vigorous marketplace.
