If you purchased a consumer product on credit, and gave up the opportunity to receive cash back in exchange for “zero percent financing,” we are sorry to inform you that you did not really receive zero percent financing.

Bayer Vitamins

We are interested in speaking with New Jersey residents who purchased Bayer vitamins, such as One-A-Day, based upon the belief that they would help to improve breast, heart, eye, joint or other health. A nonprofit consumer group is arguing that Bayer's claims that its vitamins "support" breast, heart, eye, and joint health, as well as physical energy, immunity, healthy blood pressure, bone strength, and metabolism are unproven. If you are a New Jersey resident who's purchased Bayer vitamins based on these claims, we'd like to hear your story and help protect consumers from believing these vitamins are the answer to preventative care and major health issues.

Billy Pinilis is a faithful protector of consumer rights and believes that no consumer should be the victim of fraud — even if it is for a small amount of money. In New Jersey, the law almost always provides for enhanced awards and attorney’s fees; thus, no case is too small. 

If you believe that you have a claim or if you are a lawyer who has been consulted by a claimant, you owe it to yourself to speak with PinilisHalpern, LLP.

In New Jersey, if a consumer has been misled, then you have a viable lawsuit. Under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, it is not necessary to prove that a seller or advertiser intended to mislead a consumer.
