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.
