The Poor are often the prey of unscrupulous merchants or

salesmen. Exorbitant interest rates on items purchased or

inferior quality of goods and services are frequently found


in our low income neighborhoods. These practices must be stopped.


We ask that the State of Georgia establish a consumer
protection agency to gather facts and evidence against mer-
chants of all types who knowingly cheat and swindle custo-
mers with inferior merchandise, foods, and hidden or unfair
credit practices. _ That this agency make this information
available to consumers and use it, too, to advise Georgia
Lawmakers of needed changes in state laws.

That a law be passed requiring full, total, itemized and
final credit costs be written out immediately above the

place where the consumer must sign contracts, for loans,
services, or goods. That these costs also be read aloud
to the buyer before he signs the contract.
