Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin and the Division of Consumer Affairs announced educational and enforcement initiatives that will help protect consumers from being overcharged as they shop, dine, and travel to celebrate the holiday season.
Division inspections of baggage scales at New Jersey’s two international airports and a year-long crackdown on businesses charging hidden credit card fees or refusing to accept cash payments have led to corrective actions that protect consumers’ financial interests.
The Division issued comprehensive guidance to help merchants understand their obligations under a recently enacted law aimed at safeguarding New Jersey consumers against unfair credit card surcharges.
