Consumer Protection Division representative to provide information, field consumer complaints and concerns
DES MOINES – A Consumer Protection Division representative will travel to Manchester and Anamosa on April 24 to provide “mobile office” access for Iowans with consumer-related questions or complaints, Attorney General Tom Miller announced.
The investigator 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, April 24, at these two locations:
Manchester: 9:30-11:30 a.m.
Manchester Public Library
304 North Franklin St.
Anamosa: 1:30-3:30 p.m.
Anamosa Library and Learning Center
600 E. First St.
Miller sends the mobile office to cities outside of Des Moines to assist Iowans with consumer issues.
The outreach effort began in 2016 when Miller traveled to Cedar Rapids and opened a temporary mobile office following flooding. Office representatives provided flood victims with information on hiring a contractor, avoiding fraud and understanding the state’s price-gouging rule.
Members of the public do not need to reserve a time to speak with the Consumer Protection Division representative during mobile office hours. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
