About The Event

Thinking about buying a car or hiring someone to work on your house? Tired of robocall scams? Being hounded by an unscrupulous debt collector? Charity Clark and Ryan Kriger of the Vermont Attorney General’s Office have your back! In this 6th installment of the People’s Law School, they will walk you through a variety of issues faced by consumers and shoppers, such as:

  • Best practices for buying a car;
  • How to protect yourself from getting scammed, defrauded, or deceived when shopping;
  • Protecting yourself from identity theft;
  • Illegal debt collection practices;
  • The “private right of action” under the Vermont Consumer Protection Act, which allows a consumer to bring a lawsuit against a business that violated the Act;
  • And more!

Charity Clark is the Chief of Staff of the Vermont Attorney General’s Office and Director of the AG’s Consumer Assistance Program (CAP). Ryan Kriger has been an Assistant Attorney General in the Consumer Unit for over a decade and is a part-time lecturer at the University of Vermont, teaching Consumer Law, Public Policy, and Privacy.
