The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) says it secured $26.2 million in refunds and compensation from vendors on behalf of aggrieved consumers during the 2018/19 Financial Year.
 
In a news release on Tuesday, the CAC said this resulted from the settlement of 1,489 complaint cases handled.
 
This represented a resolution rate of 85 per cent.
 
The three categories which yielded the most monetary compensation were: Automotive $12.4 million; Other Services $4.3 million and Electrical Equipment & Appliances $3.6 million.
 
The Commission also responded to 913 requests for advice and information.
 
This was a 25 per cent increase over 2017.
