Efficient Way to Clean csv File 

Just wondering what would be an efficient way to clean up a .csv file where clients use comma in their data
For example, 123,456 or LastName, FirstName. These throws the whole conversion off and I have no better way other than import as delimited file first and manually dive in to delete the extra comma

Text qualifier would solve the issue but unfortunately that's not an option.

So what would be an efficient way to deal with this?
