- Every trader who violates the provisions of the law and indulges in unfair trade practices will be charged with a penalty which shall not exceed $10,000. [Section 2461 (a)]
- The affected consumer has the right to receive compensation for damages suffered and can also receive the expenses incurred by way of attorney’s fees. [Section 2461 (b)]
