FOX 8 Defenders: Volunteers save consumers nearly $56k last month

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Our volunteers with the National Council of Jewish Women who staff our consumer advocacy program answered 156 calls and emails last month.  The total savings amounts to $55,950.

We helped resolve a mix of complaints, including a water main leak, steps from a West Bank couple's front door.

 Also, there's closure now for some consumers fighting a national resort rental company after they bought into vacation plans, but were never able to book a trip.  Several consumers in Louisiana got reimbursement checks after the state attorney general settled with Festiva.

A week after we brought you the story of a Kenner business waiting months on $25,000 worth of office furniture, the Chalmette furniture store that's been the subject of our ongoing furniture store fallout investigation finally made good on its delivery. 

The FOX 8 Defenders staffed with volunteers from the National Council of Jewish Women also field consumer complaints at 1-877-670-6397 or fill out an online complaint form.
