Does Section 75 of Consumer Act cover fraud (fraud on card

Customer Question

Does Section 75 of Consumer Act cover fraud (fraud on card & theft of goods) or should an insurance claim for fraud be pursued? This relates to a new kitchen purchase and I have a police incident number. The fraudster has disappeared.

Hi, Thank you for your question. A fraud is a breach of contract and therefore S.75 should apply. If they wont agree to comply with their obligation have you tried making a complaint to the Financial Ombudsman? Kind regards AJ
