Sadly, in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, the NC Attorney General has received hundreds of complaints for price gouging. Price gouging is defined as charging unreasonable prices for goods, services or commodities at a time when North Carolina is in a State of Emergency.
On September 7, 2018 Governor Cooper declared a State of Emergency for North Carolina. Those who are price gouging are subject to a $5,000.00 civil penalty for each violation.
If you purchased GAS, WATER, or HOTEL ROOMS, and believe you are a victim of price gouging contact Miller Law Group for more information. Or call 919-348-4361.
