Consumer Protection Division representatives to provide information, field consumer complaints and concerns
DES MOINES – Consumer Protection Division representatives will travel to Mount Pleasant and Fairfield next week to provide “mobile office” access for Iowans with consumer-related questions or complaints, Attorney General Tom Miller announced.
The representatives will be on hand to provide information, answer questions, and assist with consumer protection matters, including complaints from consumers.
The mobile office will be open on Tuesday, December 5 at these two locations:
- Mount Pleasant: 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Mount Pleasant Public Library
307 E Monroe St.
- Fairfield: 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Fairfield Senior Citizen Center
209 South Court St.
Miller sends the mobile office to cities outside of Des Moines to assist Iowans with consumer issues.
The outreach effort began last year when Miller traveled to Cedar Rapids and opened a temporary mobile office following a flood event. A Consumer Protection Division investigator provided flood victims with information on hiring a contractor, avoiding fraud, and the state’s price-gouging rule.
Members of the public do not need to reserve a time to speak with a Consumer Protection Division representative. Members of the public can also contact the division at 515-281-5926, call toll-free (outside the Des Moines metro area) at 888-777-4590, or email email@example.com.
