Attorney General investigates more than 70 price gouging, fraud complaints from Coastal Bend

Hurricane Harvey set off a storm of consumer complaints, and the Texas Attorney General’s Office is taking notice.

The State Attorney General is worried about price gouging, or businesses trying to take advantage of storm victims. The Attorney General’s Office has received complaints about more than 40 businesses in the Coastal Bend.

Many of those complaints came immediately after the storm. However, now the Attorney General’s Office is getting a second wave of complaints, mostly about businesses charging too much for clean up services, or false charities.

“We’ve seen storm chasers, people who are coming in with the intent to defraud people,” said Kelly Trevino with the Better Business Bureau.

The Attorney General’s Office vowed to look into all of the allegations, and now that is exactly what they are doing.

“All throughout the Coastal Bend region, we received complaints from consumers and residents,” said Marc Rylander, Director of Communications for the Attorney General’s Office.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Looking Into High School Prayer Room

Is the AG trying to shutdown the prayer room used by Muslim students, or just trying to make sure all students have equal access? I share my thoughts on that and even if a prayer room is a good idea.

Texas Attorney General Has Fraud Charges Dismissed

Court documents showed a federal judge on Friday dismissed a civil securities fraud case against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
The ruling in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas marks a major victory for the Tea Party Republican. He has denied violating securities laws but still faces similar, though criminal, state-level charges.
In April, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged Paxton over what the agency said was his role in a stock scam. The scam defrauded investors in a Texas-based technology company called Servergy Inc.
