AG’s office accepting COVID-19 price-gouging complaints

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is urging Hoosiers who believe they have been the victim of price gouging of consumer goods related to the coronavirus pandemic to file a complaint with his office.

Hill announced Wednesday that price-gouging complaints can be filed with the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protective Division. The announcement comes after Gov. Eric Holcomb signed an executive order this week telling Indiana residents to contact the AG’s office if they believe they’ve been subjected to excessive prices.

Specific price-gouging authority in Indiana law refers to fuel prices during a state of emergency, but the OAG has authority to enforce the Deceptive Consumer Sales Act, a Wednesday news release said. Enforcement of the act includes “unfair, abusive, deceptive or unconscionable conduct.”

Consumer complaints can be filed online at under the “File a Complaint” option. The Consumer Protection Division can also be reached at 1-800-382-5516 or 317-232-6330.
