Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt has made a form available on his office's website to report price gouging related to COVID-19.
The form asks specific questions relating to price points, if other sellers were also selling items at this price, where the incident occurred, if a sale took place and more. These questions will aid the Attorney General's Office's Consumer Protection Section in tracking down and investigating these complaints, Schmitt said in a Monday news release.
Price gouging can also be reported at the Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-392-8222 and on the standard consumer complaint form at ago.mo.gov, but if possible consumers are urged to use the specific form if reporting price gouging.
