Attorney General annouces partnerships to combat price gouging

first_imgStatewide—Attorney General Curtis Hill announced that his office has partnered with Amazon and Facebook to fight price gouging within the companies’ respective sites and marketplaces.Attorney General Hill said his office can send price-gouging complaints related to Amazon directly to the company so it can investigate them.  According to Hill, Amazon will also send market analysis information to the office, which will allow the office to better identify sellers engaging in bad behavior. “We are communicating directly with Amazon and Facebook so that together we can take action against those who feel it is acceptable to scam Hoosiers, many of whom are struggling financially due to the coronavirus pandemic,” Attorney General Hill said. “Price gouging is an unconscionable practice, and we will do everything within our legal right to stop it.”Amazon says it has already removed more than 500,000 offers from its stores due to coronavirus-related price gouging. The company said it has also suspended more than 3,900 accounts in its U.S. store for violating its fair pricing policies.Facebook will also work with the office to remove price-gouging listings and advertisements from its Marketplace. The company has banned the advertisement and sale of medical masks, hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and coronavirus (COVID-19) testing kits, as well as prohibited products that claim to cure or prevent the virus. The Consumer Protection Division of the Office of the Attorney General has received more than 150 price-gouging complaints since Gov. Eric Holcomb declared a public health emergency in response to the coronavirus outbreak. While specific price-gouging authority in Indiana law refers to fuel prices during a state of emergency, the Office of the Attorney General has the authority to enforce the Deceptive Consumer Sales Act, which permits appropriate enforcement of any unfair, abusive, deceptive or unconscionable conduct.If you suspect an Amazon or Facebook seller is charging excessive prices for goods you need, you may submit a consumer complaint to the Consumer Protection Division by clicking here.

Louis van Gaal returns to work as Manchester United dismiss speculation

first_img Meanwhile, the 64-year-old was back at the club’s Aon Training Complex in Carrington after two days off for him and the players that were always scheduled, and during which he is understood to have been with his family in Holland. Amid the intense speculation about his position and with him reportedly set for further discussions this week with Woodward, who was not in Manchester on Tuesday, Van Gaal has United’s next game to think about. That is Friday’s FA Cup fourth-round trip to Derby, where a poor result – or even just a lacklustre performance – against the Sky Bet Championship side is only likely to increase the scrutiny on, and anger from United fans towards, Van Gaal, should he still be in his job by then. Loud boos rang around Old Trafford following the final whistle of Saturday’s game as Van Gaal endured what he later described as the worst reaction he has heard from United supporters during his time in charge. He also said they were ”right to boo” and added: ”I’m very disappointed that I cannot reach the expectations of the fans. ”They have – or they had – great expectations of me, and I cannot fulfil them.” The Red Devils, whose style of play has frequently been criticised, had just one shot on target during the defeat. They are five points off the Premier League’s top four in fifth place, 10 points behind leaders Leicester, and have won only three of their last 13 matches in all competitions, a sequence which has included seeing them exit the Champions League. The message understood to be coming from the board early on during that run of results was one of full support for Van Gaal, but it will be interesting to see how things develop from here. Former United chief executive David Gill, now a non-executive director, admitted on Sunday “it’s been a season of under-achievement”, while it has been reported Woodward has been in touch with a number of players and senior figures at the club since the Southampton game about the situation. United brought in former Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Holland boss Van Gaal as David Moyes’ successor in the summer of 2014 on a three-year deal. And his first season in the job saw the team secure a route back into the Champions League, improving on a Premier League finish of seventh a year earlier by claiming fourth spot. There had been hopes of a challenge for the title this term, but the chances of that look slim after Saturday’s loss, which leaves United on 37 points after 23 games. They had three points more at the same stage of the season that Moyes – sacked in April of the campaign – was in charge, and were still in the Champions League. What really appears to have damaged Van Gaal’s standing among the club’s fans is the manner of performances under him. Supporters have increasingly vented their frustration at what is widely regarded as a dull brand of football. The Southampton contest was the 11th straight home game in which United failed to score in the first half, and the seventh home match this season in which they did not net at all. As well as booing, chants of “attack, attack, attack” have been heard coming from the Old Trafford stands, but Van Gaal’s team – featuring a host of big-money signings – have generally been unable to make a positive response. And it would appear, with only a few days left before deadline, there has been little progress made in any attempts to boost the squad with further recruits in the current transfer window. Press Association Reports emerged late on Monday suggesting the Dutchman spoke to United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about his future immediately after the Barclays Premier League contest at the weekend. Within that, there were some claims Van Gaal had offered his resignation – but United on Tuesday morning denied that was the case. Beleaguered Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal returned to work on Tuesday as the club dismissed talk of him having offered to quit after Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Southampton. last_img read more

‘SUPER-HUMAN’ MAN BROKE INTO PRAMERICA AND TRIED TO ATTACK MACHINES

first_imgA man with ‘super human’ strength jumped through a reinforced window and later had to be restrained by SEVEN gardai who failed to stop him with pepper spray and batons.Theo Boake pictured laving court. Pic copyright of Northwest Newspix.Theo Boake broke into Letterkenny technology company Pramerica and attacked the company’s €300,000 server system with a fire extinguisher. The 24 year old student claims he did not know what he was doing and claims he is not guilty by reason of insanity.He appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court where he is charged with a number of offenses of causing criminal damage and assault.A jury of eight women and four men were shown amazing CCTV footage of Boake jumping through a reinforced wire glass pane before going on to attack servers with a fire extinguisher.Mr Gerard Grant, Vice-President of Information Technology at Pramerica Systems, said there were fears over the future of the computers following the attack on November 3rd, 2012.The following day Gardai were called when Boake went berserk in a phone shop in Letterkenny when his debit card would not work.He had tried to pay for €1,700 worth of goods including smart phones on his debit card at the Carphone Warehouse shop but it was declined several times.He then smashed the machine by punching it and the manager of the store called the Gardai.When Gardai arrived, Boake, of 76 Ballymaccol Woods, Letterkenny, reacted violently and had to be forcefully arrested.He was taken to Letterkenny Garda station where a doctor was called to examine a cut to his hand.The doctor recommended he receive hospital treatment but as he was getting into an ambulance, he fled the scene of he Garda station at Newline Road.Gardai eventually caught up with the prisoner but it took at least seven gardai to restrain him.Garda Damian Mulkearns said he had never witnessed anything like the strength of Boake.“It was almost as if he was super human. I have never seen anything as strong. The incapacitating spray did not have any affect on him,” he said.Garda Marcus O’Dowd said he had used his baton on the prisoner but it did not have any affect either.“I hit him with my baton but it had not affect at all. It was like hitting a wall. I pepper sprayed him but it had no affect either. He punched me in the face and I had a black eye and a bit of bruising.“I have never seen the pepper spray not working. It doesn’t matter what size you are – you usually foam from the mouth and it should blind you for around ten minutes. I have never seen it not working,” he said.Barrister for Boake, Mr Peter Nolan said his client was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and was normally a very mannerly young man.Ms Patricia McLaughlin, barrister for the state, said almost all of the facts of the case were admitted by the defense but it was up to the jury to decide if Mr Boake was not guilty by reason of insanity.The case continues today.‘SUPER-HUMAN’ MAN BROKE INTO PRAMERICA AND TRIED TO ATTACK MACHINES was last modified: February 6th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:attackdonegalGardailetterkennypramericasuper-humanTheo Boakelast_img read more
