You might think that, but you would be wrong. In San Francisco, for instance, local news station KGO7 has a consumer advocacy section called "7 on your side." It can be found here: http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/channel?s...ide&id=7109212
To quote from their site: "The 7 On Your Side team is the Bay Area's leading watchdog group fighting for consumer rights. The consumer unit is led by Michael Finney."
This is the EXACT type of thing they go after.
So, depending on where the OP lives, this could very well be true, sad though it might seem. That said, if she has gone to such a group, first, then it shows the weakness of her case. Most people go to them when all else has failed, when no one else can or will help, as a last resort. That this might have been her first move tells me she does not like her chances in court so is intead trying to humilate the guy into caving in with the help of local TV instead.
Like I said before, it is definitely "time to go to the mattresses!" This has gotten to the point of being absurd now.
