The Indiana Attorney General’s office has received around 130 complaints about price gouging on consumer goods over the last several weeks.
Director of Consumer Protection Betsy DeNardi says the complaints include a variety of stores.
“We’ve had complaints about larger stores. We’ve had complaints come in about smaller stores, third party sellers on platforms like Amazon and eBay. It’s just all over the map," DeNardi says.
The complaints made amid the COVID-19 pandemic include items like toilet paper, food, cleaning products and other essential items.
