HARRISBURG – PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro says his office has received over 5,000 complaints from Pennsylvanians reporting price hikes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His office has followed up on every verifiable tip – issuing 466 cease-and-desist letters, issuing subpoenas to 200 targets for further investigation, and finding 27 businesses where the Attorney general’s office believed actual price gouging occurred. Shapiro said, “we won’t tolerate illegal price gouging during this emergency, and we’re taking action every day to stop it.” If you see suspicious price increases on goods, you can email pricegouging@attorneygeneral.gov and fill out a complaint form.
