How do you prove false advertising took place?

False advertising is misleading, untrue, or deceptive marketing and can occur in many forms. You may have claims if an advertisement was deceptive about the price, quantity, quality or warranty of a product, service or investment.  If you purchased goods or securities as a result of misrepresentations (what the seller said) or omissions (what the seller failed to say about material facts), GFM can help you determine if you have any potential claims and whether they should be brought as individual claims or as part of a class action.

What do you need to do as a victim of false advertising?

Take a screenshot or recording of the misleading advertisement. The law covers radio, television and magazine ads as well as those on the internet. It doesn’t matter what the medium is, just that it was deceptive. Also, you should keep records of any receipts and conversations you have had with the seller. Write down an estimate of the losses you suffered, including those which are non-monetary.  .  The more information you are able to provide to GFM’s attorneys, the easier it will be to determine what, if any, claims you may have.
