A New York judge has found Dell and an affiliate guilty of fraud, false advertising, deceptive business and abusive debt collection practices, following a lawsuit from the state's attorney general, Andrew Cuomo, one year ago.Cuomo filed the suit on behalf of hundreds of customers who said the computer maker lured them into buying products with promises of attractive deals and promotions, such as low interest or financing rates, that never came to fruition. Dell also failed to deliver the technical support it was supposed to as well as promised rebates, the suit alleged.
Dell "engaged in repeated misleading, deceptive and unlawful business conduct, including false and deceptive advertising of financing promotions and the terms of warranties, fraudulent, misleading and deceptive practices in credit financing and failure to provide warranty service and rebates," said State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Teresi in his ruling. Dell will not formally comment until its own lawyers have had a chance to completely review the ruling.Bizjournals, CNN
