|Ever discover a hidden charge in a bill or invoice?
Although the extra charge may be just pennies or a few
dollars, Florida law protects you from unfair and deceptive
trade practices. You may be entitled to have the extra
charge reversed, and to have your attorney’s fees paid to
obtain the result. Also, if the practice is widespread, a class

entitled to recover your attorney’s fee if you succeed in
showing you were misled. Consult a lawyer.
