On July 2, 2020 The Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, Governor Tim Walz, and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan announced a commitment by more than 30 financial institutions to provide mortgage relief options to customers facing financial hardship caused by COVID-19 for homeowners not covered by the CARES Act.
Coronavirus stimulus payments are part of a $2 trillion relief package the federal government passed to help people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Attorney General's Office has answered some frequently asked questions about these one-time payments.
The COVID-19 Complaint Form is used if you need help with a problem related to COVID-19 such as fraud, health-related scams (miracle cures, products, or treatments), government imposter and financial relief scams, cyber crime, financial crime, hate crime, or other civil or criminal law concerns. If you have concerns about price gouging or eviction-related concerns please use the dedicated forms.
Attorney General Ellison’s Office is concerned with reports that some retailers may be engaged in price-gouging practices by selling essential goods or services at unconscionable or excessively inflated prices as a result of COVID-19. The Attorney General strongly encourages consumers to report such practices immediately to Minnesota Attorney General’s Office.
