Scams & Frauds, Staying Alert

Protecting Yourself in the Retail World

Protecting Your Small Business

The Bergen Passaic County Office of Consumer Protection’s representative will discuss how to report a complaint to our office and how to verify online, if a Home Improvement Contractor is registered in the State of New Jersey.  We will also discuss the process to file a complaint in Small Claims Court and the Role of the Better Business Bureau, which is very much different from our role.  However, if your organization has a specific topic that you would like our representative to cover, please let us know.

Thank you for your interest in our program.  If you would like to learn more about the Bergen Passaic County Office of Consumer Protection, please contact our Outreach Coordinator, Investigator Denis Niland at 201-336-6409 or email
