Consumer Beware ListThe Consumer Beware List is a searchable public record. The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services maintains this searchable list of businesses that have either:
- not responded to the ministry after they were sent 2 notifications about a consumer complaint. If the business does not take action after the second notification, it is added to the list
- been charged or convicted in relation to the Consumer Protection Act or other acts of the ministry
Check the track record of a company on the Consumer Beware List before you consider doing business with it.
Not all consumer complaints submitted to the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services are posted to the Consumer Beware List. A business or individual is only guilty of the offences in the "charges laid" section of the search results when they are found guilty in a court of law.
