FOX 8 Defenders: NCJW volunteers save consumers close to $10k in May

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The FOX 8 Defenders save consumers close to $10,000 in May.  Volunteers with the National Council of Jewish Women worked on 172 consumer cases and saved viewers $9,850 last month.

The total savings in the first five months of 2016 add up to more than $134,625.  The Defenders highlighted several consumer issues, including water and waste-water bills that shot up for thousands on the North Shore.  Louisiana Public Service Commissioners ultimately passed a plan in May to give consumers  some relief and spread the utility increases over three years.

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