The District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act lists 36 examples of violations of the act. The lawyers at the law firm of Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata, & Siegel, P.C., know and understand the types of transactions that violate the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act. The District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act lists 36 examples of how one can utilize it and does not depend on whether the consumer was in fact, misled, deceived or damaged. In fact, it is a violation of the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act “whether or not any consumer is in fact misled, deceived, or damaged”. Therefore if the consumer observes a violation he or she need not have been damaged by it to file a lawsuit and seek relief. Examples of violations of the Consumer Protection Act include representations that goods or services were approved or certified or contain certain ingredients or characteristics that they, in fact, do not have. Additionally, if there is a false representation a product or service has a benefit or is of a certain quantity or may be used for certain purposes, that too would be a violation of the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act.
