ROUGHLY 275-THOUSAND DOLLARS.
THAT'S WHAT CALL FOR ACTION VOLUNTEERS HAVE RETURNED
TO SOUTHERN WISCONSIN CONSUMERS IN JUST THE LAST YEAR.
-- MICHELLE --
ALL THIS WEEK, WE'RE CELEBRATING THEIR SUCCESS.
NEWS 3 INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER ADAM SCHRAGER JOINS
US NOW WITH MORE.
BUT WHAT IT REPRESENTS IS AMAZING AS WELL.
TO GET TO THAT AMOUNT, CALL FOR ACTION VOLUNTEERS
BASICALLY SOLVED ONE CASE A DAY EVERY DAY OVER THE
If I'm reading this right, it's saying I need to go
through your installer.
THEY MAKE THE CALLS YOU'VE ALREADY MADE.
AND SOMETIMES, GET THE ANSWERS YOU'VE ALREADY HEARD.
You know when we start doing this, we hit walls too.
BUT HUNDREDS OF TIMES DURING THE LAST YEAR, THE CALL
FOR ACTION VOLUNTEERS BROKE DOWN THOSE WALLS.
It does give people a little stronger voice than they
would have individually.
If I call and say I'm calling from Channel 3 Call
For Action about this problem, I think it gets a little
more attention than it would from just Joe Schmoe
calling saying why aren't you doing something about
MAYBE YOUR CELL PHONE BILL DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
OR YOU CAN'T GET YOUR DRIVEWAY OR ROOF FIXED AFTER
YOU'VE PAID THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
I think what I find is that many people don't know
how or where to dispute something and they just want
somebody to listen to them.
THAT'S WHAT THESE VOLUNTEERS DO EVERY MONDAY, WEDNESDAY
AND THEN, THEY MAKE THE CALLS THAT HAVE HELPED HUNDREDS
OF CONSUMERS RETRIEVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
No problem is too small and no problem is too large
that we can't just go ahead and do something, in some
ALL THIS WEEK, WE'LL BE CELEBRATING SPECIFIC CASES
WHERE THE CALL FOR ACTION VOLUNTEERS HAVE HELPED.
SOME TIMES, THEY'VE HELPED CONSUMERS GET TENS OF THOUSANDS
OTHER TIMES, THEY'VE SIMPLY HELPED VINDICATE SOMEONE.
COMING UP AT TEN, WE'LL TELL YOU THE TYPES OF PROBLEMS
THEY SEE THE MOST.
