Warranties have been used for Scams

Consumers want some security whenever they make large purchases such as automobiles. A warranty that covers parts and labor costs is something that can be very attractive. The warranty, however, is also a breeding ground for scams. The services offered by a group legal plan are critical in dealing with such matters.

Beware of Third Party Warranties

An area of concern is the third party warranty. Those who issue these have no connection to the product whatsoever; they are not the manufacturer. The trouble with the third-party warranty is instability. They do not always stay in business, and these companies crash and burn all the time. A third-party warranty company is an expert at the hard sell. You can expect phone calls and emails telling you to purchase the warranty right away to avoid significant cost later on.

Extended warranties are also used to deceive consumers. Legal support which include the advice of an attorney can help a person avoid being taken advantage of by vendors. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has consumer help as one of the options in our group legal plan package.

Countrywide Offers Reliable Help

We have a network of lawyers nationwide to provide support to our plan members. Something they work with is consumer protection and warranties. These attorneys are very familiar with the unethical practices of individual vendors. They can caution the person to read the fine print before signing, and also check on the financial integrity of the provider.

It is always a wise decision to read a document before you sign it. It is an even smarter move not to sign a warranty at the store. The vendor is going to continue a hard sell to pressure you into signing. A group legal plan member can take the document to a Countrywide lawyer for analysis. This legal professional will know where problems may lie hidden.
