Student Consumer Action Network
Don't Get Ripped Off
Our economy needs to be fair to consumers in order to function. While a company may make a short-term profit from ripping off consumers or putting an unsafe product on the market, it's not good for anyone in the long term. We have created a series of guides to help you avoid rip-offs and scams, and to be a smarter, healthier consumer.
Our consumer program works to protect consumers by:
- Alerting the publice to hidden dangers, scams, and unsafe products
- Educating consumers about the choices available by conducting price surveys of various products and services available to students in an effort to allow them to the make the best choices for themselves.
- Educating consumers about their rights in the marketplace by producing consumer guides to help people navigate the marketplace.
As students, we're particularly vulnerable to some specific consumer issues:
