Working in cooperation with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, the MASSPIRG Consumer Action Center in Weymouth resolves disputes between consumers and businesses through negotiation and mediation on a wide range of issues, including automobile sales and repair, home improvement transactions, debt collection and credit problems, retail sales and advertising, and landlord-tenant disputes, among others. MASSPIRG's Consumer Action Center is an independent agency dealing specifically with consumer problems in Massachusetts. There are no fees for our service.  

Since 1989, the CAC staff have mediated more than 16,000 complaints and returned more than $4,000,000 to Massachusetts consumers.
