What to Expect During an Investigation

Complaints are filed with the Office of Consumer Affairs by disgruntled consumers, usually after all attempts to resolve a dispute are exhausted.  Office of Consumer Affairs Investigators gather facts and relevant documents from both sides, determine whether a complaint is valid, mediate a solution, issue a violation and schedule an administrative hearing where necessary.
