Housing discrimination is particularly serious because our nation was founded on the ideals of individual
freedoms, and one of the most fundamental freedoms in a democracy is the freedom to move about and live where you choose. Whether that choice involves transferring from one city to another, or just moving across the street, a person’s ethnicity, family situation, or disability should never be a barrier to selecting
a home, apartment, or any other kind of dwelling. This guide to fair housing is designed to help you if you believe you have been subjected to unfair housing practices.
A Fraud Fighter Account lets you choose from several security options to better protect your money. These provisions can help protect you from becoming a victim of high-pressure sales, financial scams, overreaching by caregivers and family members or identity theft. The options include:
• Setting fixed limits on daily and monthly withdrawals from your checking or savings accounts.
• Notifying you and/or a trusted third party before suspicious transactions are processed.
• Limiting or preventing electronic access to your accounts.
This new, updated, and expanded Public Service Orientation Guidebook is developed to give public officers an overview of Arizona’s laws concerning ethical standards. Although the Attorney General’s Office offers this Guidebook and a training program to assist you, the Office also is responsible to investigate and prosecute violations of public service laws. Accordingly, it is important that public officers understand that they are each responsible for complying with the law.
Hundreds of Arizona consumers called the Attorney General’s Office to investigate whether illegal conduct was responsible for Arizona’s gasoline prices jumping 48 cents in the days following Hurricane Katrina. On September 9, 2005, Attorney General Terry Goddard launched civil antitrust and consumer fraud investigations into the causes of Arizona’s high gasoline prices. The Antitrust Unit issued 45 Civil Investigative Demands to a cross-section of Arizona’s gasoline wholesalers, distributors, retailers and related parties. The CIDs requested information and data regarding supply, demand, sales, prices and industry communications from August 1, 2005 through September 9, 2005. ATU thoroughly examined all of the information provided by the CID recipients, conducted interviews and performed independent market research to determine whether Arizona’s abnormally high prices were the result of collusion or other anti-competitive or fraudulent practices prohibited by law. The investigation did not uncover any illegal conduct.
Attorney General Opinions are issued when requested by the legislature (or either house of the legislature), any public officer of the State, or a county attorney, on a question of law relating to their office. Our office does not issue opinions for private citizens, nor do we offer legal advice to private citizens.
The following opinions were issued from 1999 to the present time. The first two digits of each opinion indicate the year it was issued (I99 indicates it was issued in 1999), and the next three digits sequentially number the order in which the opinions were issued. For example, I99-003 would be the third opinion issued in 1999. The number in parentheses (R98-025) references the request for an opinion file number. Opinions of the Attorney General are advisory, and do not have the same effect as decisions of a court of law.
The Arizona Attorney General’s Office is the largest public law firm in the state, and the practice areas include: Protecting Arizona consumers against fraud, providing Arizona taxpayers with quality representation of State agencies, ensuring that Arizona aggressively pursues and prosecutes drug dealers and predators, and defending the human rights of all Arizonans.
Predators can take many forms, and everyone is potentially a target. That is why it is vital that seniors become as familiar as possible with the methods some criminals use to perpetrate scams and understand ways to protect themselves. This booklet will help you have the tools you need to be well-informed.
In an effort to educate older adults we have created this tool kit. Seniors are at risk to become victims of theft, fraud, and are particularly vulnerable to scams. This kit will help you have the tools needed to be well-informed because you could encounter a scam on the phone, through the mail, via computer or even when someone you do not know knocks on your door with an offer that may be too good to be true.
It is important that parents begin to recognize the risks that can be associated with social networking and Internet usage. As children spend more time online, they can also be exposed to many negative influences such as substance abuse, alcohol and smoking.
