Every day, businesses commit unfair practices that cause customers and clients inconvenience and some minor financial expense. For example, an online retailer might guarantee three-day shipping on all its products, but routinely takes four days to get the product to the customer because doing so saves money. Say a customer orders a pair of socks from this retailer hoping to wear them three days later (as the site promises will be possible), only to receive them a day late.
This dissatisfied customer is unlikely to take any legal action because it’s simply not worth it. However, by inducing customers with the promise of three-day shipping, while saving money on slower shipping rates, the seller is fraudulently making millions of dollars at its customers’ expenses. In cases like this, a class action can be initiated, combining every victim’s damages in order to make the matter triable. In cases where the fraudulent behavior is found to be willful, punitive damages may be awarded, allowing plaintiffs to recover damages exceeding the actual cost incurred by the fraudulent behavior.
