Consumer Issues

What is so astounding is that there is so little accountability these days. The public can be conned, fleeced, robbed and taken advantage of and those to blame, even if found guilty in a court of law, never seem to have to pay for their crimes. They get off lightly and can be back in business within a few days.

Have you had any bad experiences with cowboy companies? What do you think can be done to improve the situation? Do we need tougher sentences or just better enforcement.? Should the guilty be named and shamed publicly? Maybe it comes back to communities being more pro-active in setting up networks and spreading the word to warn others.

We do have a great many 'rights' but the laws do not seem to be enforced. You only have to watch programs like 'Rogue Traders' or 'Watchdog' to see how feeble the enforcement is in this country to protect the public from the 'cowboys'. If these people are banned from trading, why do they keep coming back?
