Dell Found Guilty of Fraud and False Advertising
Dell, one of the world’s top suppliers of personal computers, was pronounced guilty of false advertising and fraud by a New York judge. State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Teresi ordered the PC maker to more clearly disclose that the majority of customers do not qualify for free financing or get next day repair service. It is uncertain whether customers receive any compensation.
“Dell has engaged in repeated misleading, deceptive and unlawful business conduct, including false and deceptive advertising of financing promotions and the terms of warranties, fraudulent, misleading and deceptive practices in credit financing and failure to provide warranty service and rebates,” said the judge Joseph Teresi.
