Ind. (WEHT) — Indiana’s attorney general is urging Hoosiers who believe they have been subjected to excessive prices for consumer goods during the coronavirus pandemic to file a complaint online with the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division.

While specific price-gouging authority in Indiana law refers to fuel prices during a state of emergency, the Office of the Attorney General has authority to enforce the Deceptive Consumer Sales Act, which permits appropriate enforcement of any unfair, abusive, deceptive or unconscionable conduct.

​​To submit a price-gouging complaint, the Office is encouraging Hoosiers to utilize the online consumer complaint form, which can be found here and clicking on “File a Complaint.”

If you have questions about the types of complaints handled by the Consumer Protection Division, you may call 1-800-382-5516 or 317-232-6330.
