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.
