(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) -- In today’s economy, it’s hard to argue with saving money. On Monday, Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced that he had saved the citizens of the state $2.1 million in business disputes in 2010.
Speaking at the state capitol, McDaniel presented a large faux check made out to “Consumers” for the exact amount of $2,146,509. He said that nearly 2,000 customers had money returned to them through the state's consumer protection division. Money doled out ranged anywhere from 20 cents to $89,000, McDaniel said.
He urged the public to have no hesitations about contacting his office in a business dispute. McDaniel said he believes most people just get too frustrated and forget that they do have methods of recourse.
